Inverse Functions

In this mathematics lesson students learn how to find the inverse of a function using function machines.  As learning progresses students use transposition of formulae and recognise inverse functions as a reflection of its original in y = x.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to use function machines to find an inverse function.
  • Most students should be able to find an inverse function using algebraic methods.
  • Some students should be able to draw the graph of an inverse function using a reflection on y = x.

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 […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]

Comparing Datasets using the Mean and Range

In my experience, students, in general, find the concept of a mean straightforward to calculate and understand. However, the mean alone does not provide a complete picture of a set of data. To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]
