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.

Calculating the Volume of a Pyramid

When calculating the volume of a pyramid we can substitute the values of the length, width and perpendicular height into the formula V = 1/3 lwh.  In my experience this is often provided for the students with little explanation as to why a volume of a pyramid is exactly one third the volume of a […]

Solving 3D Problems using Trigonometry

When teaching solving 3D problems using trigonometry we begin the lesson with a recap of Pythagoras’ Theorem and the three trigonometric ratios.  We do this by matching the ratio and equations to the respective right-angled triangle.   Students are encouraged to work in pairs and to show the diagrams as part of the working out on […]
