Evaluating statements: consecutive sums

This resource requires problem solving using skills in forming and factorising expressions.

Students investigate the sum of four consecutive numbers. Initially this is done using numerical examples. There are a series of statements for students to classify as ‘sometimes true’, ‘always true’, or ‘never true...

Evaluating statements about probability

This is a concept development lesson that is designed to assess how well students understand the concepts of:

  • Equally likely events
  • Randomness
  • Sample size

The central theme of the lesson is to address common misconceptions relating to probability. The main activity is to...

Evaluating statements about enlargements

This lesson develops the concepts of:

  • Finding perimeters, areas, and volumes using formulas.
  • Finding relationships between perimeters, areas, and volumes of shapes after scaling.

There are three initial questions to consider that deal with:

  • The perimeter of a circle...

Evaluating statements about radicals

This lesson develops concepts relating to radicals. In particular, students will enhance their understanding of:

  • Use the properties of exponents, including rational exponents and manipulate algebraic statements involving radicals.
  • Discriminate between equations and identities.
    In this...

Evaluating Statements about Enlargements SS5

In this DfE Standards Unit resource, students explore the relationship between linear and area enlargement, substitute into algebraic statements and discuss some common misconceptions about enlargement. Students will have covered some aspects of enlarging shapes before, but they may not have explored the...

Evaluating statements about number operation

This resource develops the concept of substitution of integers, fractions, decimals, and directed numbers into inequality statements in order to test their validity. Students also represent inequalities algebraically and in words.

An initial question that students work on is representing the statement

...

Evaluating statements about rational and irrational numbers

This lesson develops the concept of reasoning about the properties of rational and irrational numbers. In particular, students will enhance their understanding of:

  • Finding irrational and rational numbers to exemplify general statements.
  • Reasoning with properties of rational and irrational...

Evaluating Statements about Number Operations N2

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students learn to understand the properties of number operations, substitute integers, fractions, decimals and negative numbers into statements and equations in order to test their validity and address common misconceptions about the effect of addition, subtraction,...

Evaluating statements about rational and irrational numbers

This lesson develops the concept of reasoning about the properties of rational and irrational numbers. In particular, students will enhance their understanding of:

  • Finding irrational and rational numbers to exemplify general statements.
  • Reasoning with properties of rational and irrational...

Evaluating Statements about Length and Area SS4

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students learn to understand concepts of length and area in more depth, revise the names of plane shapes, develop reasoning through considering areas of plane compound shapes and construct their own examples and counter-examples to help justify or refute conjectures....
