Problem Solving with Time Tables

Students practise problem solving with time tables using multiplication grids, factors and understanding division as the opposite of multiplication.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.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to recall and apply times table facts up to and including 12 × 12
  • Most students should be able to using division as the opposite of multiplication.
  • Some students should be able to calculate all the factors of a number.

Calculating the Volume of a Pyramid

When calculating the volume of a pyramid we can substitute the values of the length, width and perpendicular height into the formula V = 1/3 lwh.  In my experience this is often provided for the students with little explanation as to why a volume of a pyramid is exactly one third the volume of a […]

Solving 3D Problems using Trigonometry

When teaching solving 3D problems using trigonometry we begin the lesson with a recap of Pythagoras’ Theorem and the three trigonometric ratios.  We do this by matching the ratio and equations to the respective right-angled triangle.   Students are encouraged to work in pairs and to show the diagrams as part of the working out on […]

When I teach rounding to a significant figure, I ask the class to discuss in pairs or small groups a definition for the word significant.  It is a word that all the students have heard before but not all are able to define. After 2 or 3 minutes of conversation I ask the students to […]
