              Finding the Highest Common Factor

              Students learn about finding the highest common factor of numbers and terms.  More able student learn how to find the highest common factor of expressions.At the start of the lesson students recap finding factors of numbers and simple terms.  In the main phase they find the factors of numbers and terms to select the highest factor that is common to all values.  At the end of the lesson they are challenged to solve a real life problem by finding the highest common factor of two numbers.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the highest common factor of two integers when given their factors.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the highest common factor of two or more integers.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the highest common factor of two or more terms.

              How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

              There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
