              Plotting Linear Inequalities

              Students learn how to plot and calculate linear inequalities on a Cartesian axes.  As learning progresses they are challenged to identify regions on a grid using sets.The start of lesson reminds students about the gradient and intercept properties of linear functions.   The plenary challenges students to identify and describe a set of inequalities around a specific region.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to plot and describe an inequality in the form y = a, x = a.
              • Most students should be able to plot a linear equality on Cartesian axes.
              • Some students should be able to plot and describe linear inequalities on Cartesian axes.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
