              Subtracting Fractions using a Fraction Wall

              Students learn how to subtract fractions with using equivalent fraction diagrams.  As learning progresses more able students are taught written methods.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the difference between two fractions with the same denominator.
              • Most students should be able to use visual methods to find the difference between two fractions.
              • Some students should be able to use written methods to find the difference between fractions and mixed numbers.

              How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

              There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
