Factor Pairs of Numbers and Terms

Students learn how to find all the factor pairs of numbers and terms.  More able are taught to find the factors of algebraic expressions.  Less able students are supported with a timetables grid.The start of the lesson is used to review finding the lowest common multiple of two numbers using Venn diagrams.  In the main part of the lesson students use factor pairs to find all the factors of numbers and simple expressions.  At the end of the lesson students are challenged to find the factors of larger numbers by chunking.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to use factor pairs to calculate all the factors of an integer.
  • Most students should be able to use factor pairs to calculate factors of an integer and term.
  • Some students should be able to explore the factors of an algebraic expression.

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 […]
