              Speed Vs Time Graphs

              Students learn how to plot and interpret speed vs. time graphs.  By considering the direction of the graph students understand how an acceleration and retardation correspond to a positive or negative gradient.  As learning progresses displacement is measured by calculating the area under the line.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to recognise a positive gradient as increasing velocity and a negative gradient as decreasing velocity.
              • Most students should be able to plot a velocity – time graph and calculate the area under the line to measure displacement.
              • Some students should be able to sketch a distance – time graph from a velocity time graph.

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]

              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 […]
