              Prime Factor Decomposition

              Students learn how to break down a number using its prime factors and write the result using index notation.  As learning progresses they apply their learning to solve a simple equations where the unknown is a power and the base is prime.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to decompose an integer using its prime factors.
              • Most students should be able to decompose an integer using it’s prime factors and write the product using index notation.
              • Some students should be able to solve equations such as 2mx 3k= 648 using prime number factorisation

              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 […]
