Sharing in a Given Ratio

Students learn how to divide a quantity into two or more parts when given a ratio.  As learning progresses students link sharing to a ratio with known geometrical facts such as the perimeter, area and the angles in a quadrilateral.The start of the lesson recaps writing and simplifying a ratio.  At the end of the lesson students are given a more problem solving question to develop their mathematical reasoning skills.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to share to a ratio where the total shares are a factor of the amount.
  • Most students should be able to share to a ratio by calculating the value of a single share.
  • Some students should be able derive and simplify a ratio involving three terms and share to any amount.

This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]

How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]

How Write 3 Part Ratios

When learning how to write 3-part ratios students need to understand how ratios can be made equivalent. The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out.  This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson.    Writing Equivalent Ratios  A few students immediately go […]
