              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.

              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 […]

              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 […]
