What will be covered in the lesson?

A lesson on direct and inverse proportion for students in year 10 and 11. We will cover the following in the lesson:

  1. Direct Proportion
  2. Inverse Proportion
  3. Direct and Inverse Proportion Equations

Why do students need to know about proportion?

Direct and inverse proportion are everywhere in everyday life. For example, if 3 jumpers cost £15, I can use this information to work out the cost of 1 jumper and many others.

Inverse proportion is more difficult to get your head around compared to the previous example (direct proportion). Let’s take painting for example. If 2 painters take 3 days to complete a job, if I increase the number of painters, the time taken to complete the job will go down! This goes against direct proportion.

Will there be more sessions on direct and inverse proportion?

Yes. Thursday’s is designated to ratio and proportion so we will cotniuisionly be locoing at areas that revolve around these areas.
