              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.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]

              Getting Ready for a New School Year

              When getting ready for a new school year I have a list of priorities to work through. Knowing my team have all the information and resources they need to teach their students gives me confidence we will start the term in the best possible way.  Mathematics Teaching and Learning Folder All teachers receive a folder […]
