              Indices with Negative Powers

              Students learn how to write indices with negative powers as fractions.  This lesson builds on using the multiplication and division rules of indices to simplify and evaluate terms.  More able students are challenged to write unit fractions using index notation
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to write a negative power of one as a fraction.
              • Most students should be able to write a negative power as a fraction.
              • Some students should be able to convert between a fraction and index notation.

              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 […]

              Priorities for the Spring Term

              At the start of the Spring Term these are three main priorities for me as the Head of Mathematics.

              Mutually Exclusive Outcomes and Events

              I teach mutually exclusive outcomes directly after students have encountered Venn diagrams. This is the fifth Year 8 Probability lesson.
