Understanding Set Notation

Students learn how to find the union and intersection of elements using basic set notation.  As learning progresses students consider the complement of a set while reviewing basic number properties.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to list the elements of a set.
  • Most students should be able to enumerate sets and unions/intersections of sets systematically.
  • Some students should be able to find the complement of a set.

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 […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]

To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]
