Pressure

Students learn how to calculate the pressure of an object at rest as a compound measure of force and area.  As learning progresses students use algebraic techniques to calculate the force or area when the pressure is known.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate pressure as a compound measure of force and area.
  • Most students should be able to calculate a pressure, force or area when given the other two measures.
  • Some students should be able to convert between metric units of pressure.

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]

Comparing Datasets using the Mean and Range

In my experience, students, in general, find the concept of a mean straightforward to calculate and understand. However, the mean alone does not provide a complete picture of a set of data. To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]
