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.

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 […]

Plotting Quadratic Graphs on Cartesian Axes

In recent examiner reports it is noted how important it is for students to understand the properties of a parabola  when plotting quadratic graphs on Cartesian axes.  Students who have a secure understanding of parabolas can use them to correct miscalculated values in their table of results and are more likely to attain full marks […]
