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.

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

There are three common methods for sharing an amount to a given ratio.  Depending on the age group and ability range I am teaching I would choose one approach over the other two. The three methods are: Using fractions Unitary method Using a table In this blog I will demonstrate each of the three methods […]

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]

Plotting Quadratic Graphs on Cartesian Axes

In recent examiner reports it is noted how important it is for students to understand the properties of a parabola  when plotting quadratic graphs on Cartesian axes.  Students who have a secure understanding of parabolas can use them to correct miscalculated values in their table of results and are more likely to attain full marks […]
