Pythagoras Theorem in 3D Shapes

Many problems involve three-dimensional objects or spaces.  Pythagoras Theorem in 3D Shapes can be used as much with these problems as those in plane shapes. Knowing when to use Pythagoras Theorem The starter recaps applying Pythagoras Theorem as part of a larger problem involving the perimeter of a trapezium and square.  The aim of this […]

Drawing Frequency Trees for GCSE Maths

Drawing frequency trees for GCSE maths is a new topic and appears on both the higher and foundation curriculum.  I’ve taught this lesson a couple of times, once to Year 10 and once to Year 11 and I have to say the kids really enjoy it. What is a frequency tree? Frequency trees can be […]

How to calculate speed using ratio notation

Whenever I teach how to calculate speed as a measure of distance and time I either use the formula or the triangle method.  In my experience most students are know about the triangle method from their science lessons.  For this reason I would have expected speed to appear either within the algebra or shape and measures strands of […]
