              Prime Numbers

              To define what makes a prime number students begin the lesson by calculating factors of several integers.  Prime numbers are then defined and listed.  To aid their recollection of the first 12 primes students are challenged to apply them within calculations.  As learning progresses students use the Sieve of Eratosthenes to calculate all the primes up to 100.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to recall the first 12 prime numbers.
              • Most students should be able to recall and apply the first 12 prime numbers.
              • Some students should be able to use the Sieve of Eratosthenes to calculate all primes up to 100.

              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 […]

Knowing my team have all the information and resources they need to teach their students gives me confidence we will start the term in the best possible way.  Mathematics Teaching and Learning Folder All teachers receive a folder […]

              Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

              Earlier this week, my school took part in a trial OFSTED inspection as part of getting ready for the new inspection framework in September 2019. This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]
