Nth Term Linear

Students learn how to create formula, called the nth term, to algebraically describe a numerical and picture arithmetic sequences.  As learning progresses students are challenged to derive the nth term for a fractional sequence by considering its numerator and denominator and separately.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to derive the nth term of a positive sequence.
  • Most students should be able to derive the nth term of a positive and negative sequence
  • Some students should be able to derive the nth term of a fractional sequence.

Solving Problems with Angles in Parallel Lines

Solving problems with angles in parallel lines is like solving a murder mystery.  One clue leads on to the next and the next until the murderer is found.  However, it doesn’t end there.  The detectives need to explain their reasoning in court using the relevant laws and procedures should the murderer plead not guilty.  If […]

Solving Two Step Equations using the Balance Method

An equation is when one expression, or term, is equal to another.  To solve an equation means to find the value of the variable (represented by a letter) that makes the two expressions equal.  There are two types of equations for secondary school mathematics, linear and none-linear.  In this blog I write about how I […]

How to Simplify Surds

When learning how to simplify surds students need to understand the difference between a rational and irrational number. Rational numbers include integers and terminating and repeating decimals. They can be written as a fraction with both the numerator and denominator as integers. An irrational number is a number which, in its decimal form does not […]
