Problems with Simultaneous Equations

To introduce the idea of equivalent equations the starter involves calculating the common factor between multiple equations in order to determine the odd one out.In the main phase the teacher is provided with progressively more complicated pairs of equations in which to model the idea of making coefficients equal in order for an unknown to be eliminated.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to solve a pair of simultaneous equations with different coefficients using the elimination method
  • Most students should be able to derive and solve a pair of simultaneous equations by equating two unknowns.
  • Some students should be able to equate two unknowns from a diagram and solve using the method of elimination.

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 […]

Rounding to a significant figure

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 […]
