Expanding Brackets and Collecting Like Terms

Students learn how to find the sum and difference of two algebraic expressions by expanding brackets.  Learning progresses from working with linear to non-linear terms and writing the area of composite shapes as simplified algebraic expressions.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to simplify the sum of two brackets with linear terms.
  • Most students should be able to find the sum and difference of two or more brackets.
  • Some students should be able to find the sum and difference of two or more brackets with non-linear terms.

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]

Plotting and Interpreting Conversion Graphs

Plotting and interpreting conversion graphs requires linking together several mathematical techniques.  Recent U.K. examiner reports indicate there are several common misconceptions when plotting and interpreting conversion graphs.  These include: drawing non-linear scales on the x or y axis, using the incorrect units when converting between imperial and metric measurements, taking inaccurate readings from either axis not […]
