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 the Volume of a Pyramid

When calculating the volume of a pyramid we can substitute the values of the length, width and perpendicular height into the formula V = 1/3 lwh.  In my experience this is often provided for the students with little explanation as to why a volume of a pyramid is exactly one third the volume of a […]

Solving 3D Problems using Trigonometry

When teaching solving 3D problems using trigonometry we begin the lesson with a recap of Pythagoras’ Theorem and the three trigonometric ratios.  We do this by matching the ratio and equations to the respective right-angled triangle.   Students are encouraged to work in pairs and to show the diagrams as part of the working out on […]

Rounding to a significant figure

When I teach rounding to a significant figure, I ask the class to discuss in pairs or small groups a definition for the word significant.  It is a word that all the students have heard before but not all are able to define. After 2 or 3 minutes of conversation I ask the students to […]
