              Square and Cube Numbers

              Students are introduced to the concept of square and cube numbers through the use of diagrams of volumes and areas.  As learning progresses students consolidate their understanding of a volume from a cube as a cube number, the area of a square as a square number and its length as a square root of its area.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to recognise the first 10 square numbers and 5 cube numbers.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the first 15 square numbers and 6 cube numbers.
              • Some students should be able to calculate any square or cube number and square root.

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
