Proportion and Recipes

Students learn how to use proportion and ratio notation to adjust recipes for different amounts.  As learning progresses they calculate the number of servings when a second ingredient list is given.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to use a single multiplier to adjust an ingredient list.
  • Most students should be able to adjust an ingredient list for any number of servings.
  • Some students should be able to calculate the number of servings when given comparable ingredient lists.

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]
