              Simplifying Algebraic Fractions

              When simplifying algebraic fractions students first need to be able to factorise and expand linear as well as quadratic expressions.  The fractions begin with simple linear terms and advances to factorising quadratics using the difference of two squares.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to simplify an algebraic fraction involving linear terms.
              • Most students should be able to simplify algebraic fractions involving linear and quadratic terms in the form ax2+bx+c where a equals one by factorising.
              • Some students should be able to simplify algebraic fractions involving quadratics in the form ax2+bx+c where a does not equal one.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
