              Tables of Functions

              Students are introduced to linear functions in the form y = mx + c by breaking them down using function machines with input and outputs.  An interactive Excel file and Jigsaw puzzle are included with the lesson for additional consolidation and practice.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to use a function machine to determine an output of a linear function given its x value.
              • Most students should be able to create a table of results showing x and y for any linear function.
              • Some students should be able to derive a linear function given corresponding x and y values.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              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 […]
