Solving Two Step Equations

Using the balance method students are taught how to solve two-step equations involving multiplications and divisions.At the start of the lesson students recap how to solve one step equations.  In the main part they learn how to use the method and inverse operations to solve a two-step equation.  The plenary challenges students to match various equations with their solutions.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able solve equations involving a multiplication and addition.
  • Most students should be able to solve equations involving divisions and multiplications.
  • Some students should be able to solve equations where the unknown is presented as a negative.

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

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 […]
