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.

Calculating the Volume of a Pyramid

When calculating the volume of a pyramid we can substitute the values of the length, width and perpendicular height into the formula V = 1/3 lwh.  In my experience this is often provided for the students with little explanation as to why a volume of a pyramid is exactly one third the volume of a […]

Solving 3D Problems using Trigonometry

When teaching solving 3D problems using trigonometry we begin the lesson with a recap of Pythagoras’ Theorem and the three trigonometric ratios.  We do this by matching the ratio and equations to the respective right-angled triangle.   Students are encouraged to work in pairs and to show the diagrams as part of the working out on […]
