# Solving Inequations

The start of the lesson is used to review deriving inequalities from number lines.  The development phase builds on this by using number lines to represent a range of solutions for inequations.  As learning progresses students move on to solving inequations involving brackets and negatives using the balance method.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to solve a two step linear inequation and represent the solutions on a number line.
• Most students should be able to solve a linear inequation involving brackets and represent the solutions on a number line.
• Some students should be able to solve a linear inequation between two boundaries and represent the solutions on a number line.

#### Area of Compound Shapes

To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]

#### Priorities for the Spring Term

At the start of the Spring Term these are three main priorities for me as the Head of Mathematics.

#### Mutually Exclusive Outcomes and Events

I teach mutually exclusive outcomes directly after students have encountered Venn diagrams. This is the fifth Year 8 Probability lesson.
