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.

Teaching Reciprocals of Numbers and Terms

To introduce teaching reciprocals of numbers and terms I begin the lesson explaining that everything has an opposite.  The opposite of shutting a door is to open it.  The opposite of saying hello is to say goodbye.  Numbers have opposites too we call them reciprocals.

Surface Area of Cylinders

When I teach how to find the surface area of cylinders I like to add a constant level of challenge and enjoyment to the lesson.  Rather than repetitively calculating the surface area of a cylinder I introduce more complex cylindrical shapes.

Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach.  The feeling of success is addictive.  The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it.  Teaching […]
