              Multiples of numbers and expressions

              Students learn how to calculate multiples of numbers and expressions.  As learning progresses they move on to finding the lowest common multiple of two of more terms.  More able students find the multiples of unknowns.  Less able students use a grid to find the first five multiples of a number.The start of the lesson is used to recap the multiples of seven.  In the main part students learn how to find multiples of a number and simple algebra terms.  In the plenary students are challenged to solve a real life problem using the lowest common multiple.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to find the multiples of number up to 12 × 12.
              • Most students should be able to find the multiples of any number and a simple expression.
              • Some students should be able to find the lowest common multiple of two expressions.

              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 […]
