Angles of Elevation and Depression

Students learn how to construct and use scale drawings to measure angles of elevation and depression and unknown lengths. As learning progresses students are challenged to decide their scale and investigate similar shapes.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to construct a scale drawing of a triangle.
• Most students should be able to construct a scale drawing of a triangle to measure a length or angle.
• Some students should be able to draw and measure line segments and angles in geometric figures, including interpreting scale drawings.

Surface Area of Cylinders

When I teach how to find the surface area of cylinders I like to add a constant level of challenge and enjoyment to the lesson.  Rather than repetitively calculating the surface area of a cylinder I introduce more complex cylindrical shapes.

Teaching Mathematics for a Growth Mindset

Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach.  The feeling of success is addictive.  The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it.  Teaching […]

Equation of Straight Line Graphs

To find the equation of straight line graphs students need to calculate the gradient using two pairs of coordinates and the intercept which is the y value of where it crosses the vertical axis.  Examiner’s reports of past exam questions show students are more able to find the intercept of a straight line than they […]
