Rearranging Formulae by Factorising

Students learn how to change the subject of a formula by factorising and the balance method.  A treasure hunt activity is included as an additional resource for extra practice and consolidation.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to rearrange a formula in the form ax+bx=c by factorising to make x the subject.
  • Most students should be able to rearrange a formula in the form (a/x)+b=c to make x the subject
  • Some students should be able to rearrange a formula in the form a/(x+d) = b/(x-c) to make x the subject.

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]

Comparing Datasets using the Mean and Range

In my experience, students, in general, find the concept of a mean straightforward to calculate and understand. However, the mean alone does not provide a complete picture of a set of data. To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]
