Factorising Expressions with Powers

Students learn how to factorise expressions with powers by taking out the highest common factor.  As learning progresses the highest common factor includes both numerical and algebraic terms.  Most able students are challenged to factorise expressions involving binomials.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to factorise expressions with multiple unknowns.
  • Most students should be able to use index notation to factorise complex expressions and maintain equivalence.
  • Some students should be able to factorise expressions with negative and fractional powers.

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.  […]
