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.

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

There are three common methods for sharing an amount to a given ratio.  Depending on the age group and ability range I am teaching I would choose one approach over the other two. The three methods are: Using fractions Unitary method Using a table In this blog I will demonstrate each of the three methods […]

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]
