Writing Numbers using Words and Digits

Students learn about writing numbers using words and digits through the place value.  Less able students have access to a place value table.  More able students are encouraged to use language of fractions.  For example, 2.5 can be written as two point five or two and five tenths.At the start of the lesson students recap basic addition and subtraction.  In the development phase they learn how to use the place value table to read and write numbers in words and digits.  In the plenary students are challenged to match digits with their written counterparts.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to write a number in words using the place value table.
  • Most students should be able to convert between numbers written in words and digits.
  • Some students should be able to write a decimal number using the keywords tenths, hundredths and thousandths.

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 […]

Comparing Datasets using the Mean and Range

In my experience, students, in general, find the concept of a mean straightforward to calculate and understand. However, the mean alone does not provide a complete picture of a set of data. To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]
