              Writing Expressions using Diagrams

              Students learn about writing expressions using diagrams.  As learning progresses they create their own shapes from an expression.At the start of the lesson they recap how to write expressions using keywords.  In the main part students are taught how to write expressions from diagrams with areas given as letters.  At the end of the lesson they area challenged to create their own shapes given a fixed area.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to write an algebraic expression involving a single unknown.
              • Most students should be able to identify and collect like terms to simplify algebraic expressions.
              • Some students should be able to write a simplified algebraic expression involving brackets.

              Distance Learning with Mr Mathematics

              With schools around the United Kingdom closed to most students it is important every child has access to engaging maths lessons through distance learning.

              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 […]
