              Volume of Cubes and Cuboids

              Students learn how to find the volume of cubes and cuboids using the area of the  cross-section and depth.  Learning progresses from counting the cubes inside a shape to calculating the volume using a formula.  More able students find the volume of prisms.The start of the lesson is used to practice spacial reasoning.  In the main students learn how to find the volume of cubes and cuboids by counting and as a product of length, width and height.  The plenary challenges students to calculate the volume of a prism.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to find the volume of a cube by counting.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the volume of a cuboid as the product of length, width and height.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the volume of a prism.

              Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

              Earlier this week, my school took part in a trial OFSTED inspection as part of getting ready for the new inspection framework in September 2019. This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]

              How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

              The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]
