Enlarging Shapes to a Negative Scale Factor

Students learn how to perform enlargements for negative scale factors.  As learning progresses they are challenged to find the centre of enlargement and negative scale factor.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to enlarge an object by a negative integer scale factor and centre.
  • Most students should be able to enlarge an object by a negative scale factor and centre.
  • Some students should be able to perform and describe enlargements using a negative scale factor.

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]
