              Mixed Numbers and Top Heavy Fractions

              Students learn how to convert between mixed numbers and top heavy fractions using visual and numerical methods.  As learning progresses they are taught to check their solutions using calculator and non-calculator techniques.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to convert between top-heavy fractions and mixed numbers with the use of diagrams.
              • Most students should be able to convert between top-heavy fractions and mixed numbers using a numerical technique.
              • Some students should be able to order mixed numbers and top-heavy fractions using equivalent fractions.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
