              Multiplying with Fractions

              Year 8 maths lesson on multiplying with fractions.  Students learn how to calculate the product of two fractions first by multiplying the numerator and denominator and as learning progresses by cross-simplifying.More able students are challenged to simplify simple algebraic fractions using the same method.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to multiply the numerators and denominators to find the product of two fractions.
              • Most students should be able to find the product of two fractions by cross-simplifying.
              • Some students should be able to simplify the product of algebraic fractions by 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 […]
