Factors of an Integer

The start of the lesson involves organising integers within a Venn diagram according to their number properties.   Students build on this in the development phase by considering the factors of an integer using a times table grid and then mental methods.   The application of calculating factors extends their learning later in the lesson by derivation of Primes and Square Numbers.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the factors of an integer using a times table grid.
  • Most students should be able to calculate the factors of an integer using mental methods.
  • Some students should be able to discover the first ten prime and square numbers by considering their factors.

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 […]
