Short Division

The start of the lesson reviews calculating the products of single digit integers.   The development phase builds on this by introducing the ‘box method’ of division.  A times-table grid is provided as an additional resource to support students if necessary.  As the lesson progresses students begin to consider division with decimal numbers.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to divide any integer by a single digit.
  • Most students should be able to divide a decimal by a single digit.
  • Some students should be able to divide one by another for a problem given in context.

Solving Inequalities using a Number Line

Students should be able to represent the solutions to an inequality on a number line, using set notation or as a list of integer values.  Here’s how I teach using the balance method for solving inequalities using a number line. Matching inequalities, Number sets and Number Lines At the start of the lesson students recap […]

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 […]
