              Multiplying Fractions

              Students learn how to multiply fractions using visual and numerical methods.  As learning progresses 'cross simplifying' is introduced for multiplying fractions and mixed numbers.  Calculator methods are used throughout the lesson for the students to check their working.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the product of two ordinary fractions by cross simplifying.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the product of a top heavy and ordinary fraction by cross simplifying.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the product of two mixed numbers

              How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

              There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
