              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.

              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 […]

              Getting Ready for a New School Year
