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.

Comparing Datasets using the Mean and Range

In my experience, students, in general, find the concept of a mean straightforward to calculate and understand. However, the mean alone does not provide a complete picture of a set of data. To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]

Solving Problems with Angles in Parallel Lines

Solving problems with angles in parallel lines is like solving a murder mystery.  One clue leads on to the next and the next until the murderer is found.  However, it doesn’t end there.  The detectives need to explain their reasoning in court using the relevant laws and procedures should the murderer plead not guilty.  If […]

Solving Two Step Equations using the Balance Method

An equation is when one expression, or term, is equal to another.  To solve an equation means to find the value of the variable (represented by a letter) that makes the two expressions equal.  There are two types of equations for secondary school mathematics, linear and none-linear.  In this blog I write about how I […]
