              Ratio and Equivalent Proportions

              Students learn how to use ratio and equivalent proportions to write a ratio as a fraction and percentage.  Using diagrams, students gain a visual understanding of how to write a ratio as a simplified fraction and percentage.The start of the lesson recaps writing ratios and simplifying ratios through similar shapes.  In the plenary students are assessed against the differentiated learning objectives.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to write a simplified ratio as a fraction.
              • Most students should be able to write a ratio as a fraction and percentage.
              • Some students should be able to convert between ratio and fractions and percentages using proportional reasoning.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              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 […]

              Getting Ready for a New School Year
