              Instantaneous Rates of Change

              Students learn how to calculate and interpret instantaneous rates of change in different contexts.  By drawing a tangent at a point on a curve students find the gradient as an instantaneous rate of change.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to find the equation of a line that is tangential to a curve at integer values of x
              • Most students should be able to find the equation of a line that is tangential to a curve.
              • Some students should be able to use variation to model a non-linear function and calculate an instantaneous rate of change.

              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 […]

              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.
