Non-Linear Direct Proportion

Students learn how to model non-linear direct proportion functions using formulae and graphs.  Learning progresses from deriving the equation to manipulating it to calculate missing values.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the constant of variation that models how two measurements are in direct proportion.
  • Most students should be able to derive and use the formula that models how two measurements are in direct proportion.
  • Some students should be able to model how two measurements are in nonlinear direct proportion using a formula and graph.

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 […]

How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]

How Write 3 Part Ratios

When learning how to write 3-part ratios students need to understand how ratios can be made equivalent. The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out.  This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson.    Writing Equivalent Ratios  A few students immediately go […]
