Knowledge Organiser - Direct and Inverse Proportion

Knowledge Organiser - Direct and Inverse Proportion

My first attempt at a knowledge organiser for a top set Year 10 group tackling the a two week module on the new GCSE on proportionality. The idea comes from: http://www.greatmathsteachingideas.com/2016/01/17/knowledge-organisers-better-than-learning-objectives-and-great-for-building-retention/ The idea is to provide this to the students as a clear framework for the learning that will take place hoping that this is more impactful that success criteria and lesson objectives. You'll also find a blend space lesson here: https://www.tes.com/lessons/hlLoaruDcmplVA/direct-and-inverse-proportion All feedback welcome.

Product of Prime Factors - Relay Race

Product of Prime Factors - Relay Race

Prime factor decomposition is an deal opportunity to build it something a little different with an Optimus Prime factor decomposition relay. In pairs or teams students receive the first piece of the puzzle and are instructed to write the number as the product of its prime. On successful completion they receive the second piece and so on. It culminate with a race to build the transformer that then leads to the ultimate conclusion that prime factorisation is simply about transforming numbers from one look to another without changing who they truly are! PDF attached for ease and a word document attached so that you can edit the difficulty and create your own. The lesson that I typically accompany the activity with is also included.
