              Simplifying Algebraic Products

              Students learn how to simplify algebraic products using the rules of indices and basic algebraic notation.  As learning progresses students begin to apply their learning to evaluate the area of a rectangle with algebraic lengths.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to simplify the product and quotient of an unknown and number.
              • Most students should be able to simplify a product and quotient involving powers.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the area of a rectangle with algebraic lengths.

              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 […]
