Square Numbers and Square Roots

Students learn how to calculate square numbers and square roots.  They are taught to use visualisation, written methods and calculators.  Less able students are encouraged to use a timetable to support their learning and more able are challenged to demonstrate Lagrange's Theorem.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the first twelve square numbers using the timetable grid.
  • Most students should be able to calculate the square numbers and their roots up to 12.
  • Some students should be able to calculate the square of negative, decimals and fractions.

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

You can […]
