Harry Potter themed lesson, based around potions and proportional reasoning.
Starter: Sorting Hat function machine, testing student multiplication skills and allowing them to begin thinking Mathematically.
Main 1: Group activity, based around potion recipes, where students are required to use problem solving skills and proportional reasoning to solve the final 4 questions.
Main 2: Differentiated worksheet - scaffolded worksheet includes some slightly less complicated questions, as well as further structure. Non-scaffolded worksheet with more difficult proportion questions.
Extension: Extension problem solving cards for HA students who finish quickly.
Plenary: Discussion based plenary on potion recipe change.
This lesson was used with a high ability Y8 class, but can be adapted for other year groups. Students really enjoyed the lesson and theme - hopefully yours will too!
