Expanding Cubic Expressions

Students learn how to write the product of three binomials by expanding a cubic expression. Learning progresses onto solving cubic identities and using an expansion to calculate a cube number.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to expand the product of two or more binomials in the form x3+ax2+bx+c
  • Most students should be able to expand the product of two or more binomials in the form ax3+bx2+cx+d
  • Some students should be able to use expand three or more binomials.

How Write 3 Part Ratios

When learning how to write 3-part ratios students need to understand how ratios can be made equivalent. The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out.  This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson.    Writing Equivalent Ratios  A few students immediately go […]

Solving Inequalities using a Number Line

Students should be able to represent the solutions to an inequality on a number line, using set notation or as a list of integer values.  Here’s how I teach using the balance method for solving inequalities using a number line. Matching inequalities, Number sets and Number Lines At the start of the lesson students recap […]

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.  […]
