Introducing Mixed Numbers

Students are introduced to the equivalence between top heavy fractions and mixed numbers through the use of diagrams.  As learning progresses they learn how to use written methods to convert between the two.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to use diagrams to convert a mixed number to a top heavy fraction.
  • Most students should be able to use written methods to convert between mixed numbers and top heavy fractions.
  • Some students should be able to convert between decimals, percentages, mixed numbers and top heavy fractions.

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]
