Solving Simultaneous Equations

At the start of the lesson students review deriving and solving a simple equation from a geometrical puzzle.  The development phase goes on to solving two equations with as many unknowns using the method of elimination.In this lesson the coefficients of the unknowns are either equal to each other or one is a factor of the other.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to solve a pair of equations simultaneously using the method of elimination given equal coefficients of one unknown.
  • Most students should be able to solve a pair of equations simultaneously using the method of elimination where one coefficient is a factor of the other.
  • Some students should be able to derive and solve a pair of equations simultaneously using the method of elimination where one coefficient is a factor of the other.

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]

Plotting and Interpreting Conversion Graphs

Plotting and interpreting conversion graphs requires linking together several mathematical techniques.  Recent U.K. examiner reports indicate there are several common misconceptions when plotting and interpreting conversion graphs.  These include: drawing non-linear scales on the x or y axis, using the incorrect units when converting between imperial and metric measurements, taking inaccurate readings from either axis not […]

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 […]
