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.

Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

Earlier this week, my school took part in a trial OFSTED inspection as part of getting ready for the new inspection framework in September 2019. This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]

How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]

How Write 3 Part Ratios

When learning how to write 3-part ratios students need to understand how ratios can be made equivalent. The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out.  This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson.    Writing Equivalent Ratios  A few students immediately go […]
