              Rounding to the Nearest Power of Ten

              Students learn how to round any number to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. As learning progresses students begin to use mental methods for rounding and estimating solutions.  An interactive Excel file is included with the lesson for additional practise.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to round an integer to the nearest 10 and 100 using a number line.
              • Most students should be able to round any number to a given power of ten.
              • Some students should be able to determine the upper and lower bound of a number that has been rounded to a given power of ten.

              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
