              Multiplying and Dividing with Algebra

              Students learn about multiplying and dividing with algebra using the correct notation.  More able students are challenged to use index notation and brackets.At the start of the lesson students recap simplifying expressions by collecting like terms.  In the main part they learn the correct notation for writing expressions involving multiplications and division.  At the end they are match three equivalent expressions with different notations.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to simplify algebraic products.
              • Most students should be able to simplify expressions with multiplications and divisions.
              • Some students should be able to simplify algebraic expressions involving powers and brackets.

              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 […]

              Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

              Earlier this week, my school took part in a trial OFSTED inspection as part of getting ready for the new inspection framework in September 2019. This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]
