Scale Drawings

Students learn how to draw diagrams to a scale using ratio notation.  As learning progresses they learn how to calculate scaled and actual distances from a diagram.  More able students are challenged to investigate the relationship between length, area and volume scale factors.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to construct a scale drawing using a scale 1 : n.
  • Most students should be able to construct and interpret a scale drawing using a scale 1 : n.
  • Some students should be able to construct and interpret a scale drawing involving area.

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 […]
