              Multiplying Mixed Numbers and Top-Heavy Fractions

              Students learn how to calculate the product of mixed numbers and top heavy fractions using cross-simplifying.  As learning progresses this is linked to finding the area of rectangles with lengths as mixed numbers.  More able students consider squares and cubes of mixed numbers.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the product of two top-heavy fractions.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the simplified product of two or more mixed numbers.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the cube of a mixed number using cross-simplifying.

              Preparing Students for a Mathematics Exam

              Preparing students for a mathematics exam takes time, patience and careful planning.  In this blog I will share my ideas for teaching students how to prepare for their final exams.  These are strategies that have worked well for me and I have see work well for others.  Creative writing to formulate ideas Students need space […]

              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 […]
