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.

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 […]

Solving 3D Problems using Trigonometry

When teaching solving 3D problems using trigonometry we begin the lesson with a recap of Pythagoras’ Theorem and the three trigonometric ratios.  We do this by matching the ratio and equations to the respective right-angled triangle.   Students are encouraged to work in pairs and to show the diagrams as part of the working out on […]

Rounding to a significant figure

When I teach rounding to a significant figure, I ask the class to discuss in pairs or small groups a definition for the word significant.  It is a word that all the students have heard before but not all are able to define. After 2 or 3 minutes of conversation I ask the students to […]
