              Nth Term Quadratic

              To find the nth term of a quadratic sequence students are taught to break down the formula into into quadratic, linear and constant components using a table.  An interactive whiteboard resource can be used to generate random questions with their solutions for additional practise and consolidation.

              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 […]
