              Generating a Sequence

              Students learn how to generate sequences using the nth term formula.  As learning progresses they progress from generating linear sequences to quadratic and exponential sequences using the 'table' mode on a scientific calculator.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to generate a linear sequence from the nth term formula
              • Most students should be able to generate a quadratic sequence from the nth term formula.
              • Some students should be able to generate any sequence when given the nth term formula.

              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 […]
