              Equations with Function Machines

              The start of the lesson reviews understanding basic algebraic notation using always and sometimes true statements.  Throughout the development phase the teacher is provided with examples to model solving equations using function machines.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to use function machines to solve equations in the form ax+b=c
              • Most students should be able to use function machines to solve equations in the form a/x + b = c
              • Some students should be able to use function machines to solve equations in the form a(x+b)=c

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
