Calculating a Repeated Percentage Change

Students learn how to calculate a repeated percentage change using decimal multipliers.  As learning progresses students consider the overall percentage change to lead in to compound interest in subsequent lessons.The start of the lesson recaps finding the equivalent decimal multiplier after a simple percentage increase or decrease.  At the end of the lesson students are challenged to set up and solve an equation to find the rate of interest when the final amount is known.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate a decimal multiplier given a percentage change.
  • Most students should be able to calculate an equivalent successive percentage change.
  • Some students should be able to calculate the percentage change needed by the end of the second year.

Teaching Reciprocals of Numbers and Terms

To introduce teaching reciprocals of numbers and terms I begin the lesson explaining that everything has an opposite.  The opposite of shutting a door is to open it.  The opposite of saying hello is to say goodbye.  Numbers have opposites too we call them reciprocals.

Surface Area of Cylinders

When I teach how to find the surface area of cylinders I like to add a constant level of challenge and enjoyment to the lesson.  Rather than repetitively calculating the surface area of a cylinder I introduce more complex cylindrical shapes.

Teaching Mathematics for a Growth Mindset

Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach.  The feeling of success is addictive.  The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it.  Teaching […]
