Sharing to a Ratio

The start of the lesson is used to review sharing a sum of money equally between three people.   The development phase builds on this by demonstrating how to share amounts to a ratio.   The plenary challenges students to consider a problem in context by sharing to a ratio and calculating proportional amounts.
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 to derive and simplify a ratio involving three terms and share to any amount.

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]

Plotting and Interpreting Conversion Graphs

Plotting and interpreting conversion graphs requires linking together several mathematical techniques.  Recent U.K. examiner reports indicate there are several common misconceptions when plotting and interpreting conversion graphs.  These include: drawing non-linear scales on the x or y axis, using the incorrect units when converting between imperial and metric measurements, taking inaccurate readings from either axis not […]
