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.

How to Simplify Surds

When learning how to simplify surds students need to understand the difference between a rational and irrational number. Rational numbers include integers and terminating and repeating decimals. They can be written as a fraction with both the numerator and denominator as integers. An irrational number is a number which, in its decimal form does not […]

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 […]
