Angles in Parallel Lines

This lesson is intended to guide the class through discovering alternate, corresponding and interior angles in parallel lines.  By defining these properties for themselves students are more likely to understand their origins and be better able to apply them when calculating unknown angles.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to recognise alternate and corresponding angle to be equal and interior angles to have a sum of 180 degrees.
  • Most students should be able to calculate unknown angles in parallel lines using a alternate, interior or corresponding property.
  • Some students should be able to calculate unknown angles in parallel lines using a combination of alternate, corresponding and interior angles

How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]

Calculations with Percentages

Students learn how to find a percentage of an amount using calculator and non-calculator methods.  As learning progresses they use decimal multipliers to find a percentage change and calculate a simple interest in financial mathematics. This topic follows on from Fractions, Decimals and Percentages and takes place in Year 8 Term 5. Calculations with Percentages […]

Proving Geometrical Relationships using Algebra

Back in May 2017 maths teachers around the country eagerly awaited the first exam for the new GCSE Mathematics syllabus.  Proving geometrical relationships using algebra featured at grade 9.  In Paper 1 of Edexcel’s test paper the last question of the higher tier looked like this. Edexcel wrote about student’s performance on this question in […]
