Problem Solving with Time Tables

Students practise problem solving with time tables using multiplication grids, factors and understanding division as the opposite of multiplication.The start of the lesson reinforces multiplication as a more efficient method of long addition.  In the development phase students are challenged to complete a series of more difficult multiplication grids and use division as the opposite of multiplication.  The plenary is used to introduce factor pairs and square numbers.More able students are challenged to investigate why certain numbers have an odd number of factors.  Less able students have access to a 12 by 12 time table grid.

How to Simplify Surds

When learning how to simplify surds students need to understand the difference between a rational and irrational number. Rational numbers include integers and terminating and repeating decimals. They can be written as a fraction with both the numerator and denominator as integers. An irrational number is a number which, in its decimal form does not […]

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

There are three common methods for sharing an amount to a given ratio.  Depending on the age group and ability range I am teaching I would choose one approach over the other two. The three methods are: Using fractions Unitary method Using a table In this blog I will demonstrate each of the three methods […]

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]
