              Gradient of Parallel Lines

              The start of the lesson is used to recap calculating the gradient of linear functions.  The development phase teaches students how to calculate the gradient of parallel functions.  As learning progress they are challenged to derive the equation of linear graphs.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to understand that parallel lines have the same gradient.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the equation of a line that is parallel to another.
              • Some students should be able to rearrange equations in the form ax + by + c = o to calculate the gradient of parallel lines.

              Preparing Students for a Mathematics Exam

              Preparing students for a mathematics exam takes time, patience and careful planning.  In this blog I will share my ideas for teaching students how to prepare for their final exams.  These are strategies that have worked well for me and I have see work well for others.  Creative writing to formulate ideas Students need space […]

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
