# Applying Circle Theorems Involving Tangents

Students learn about applying circle theorems involving tangents to solve complex problems.  The alternate segment theorem and angle between between a radius and tangent are used as part of larger and more complicated problems.  More able students are challenged to derive proofs by linking various theorems and angle properties together.

The start of the lesson recaps the alternate segment theorem and angle between a radii and tangents.  The plenary takes the students through a typical examination question to assess the progress made.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to solve problems involving the angle between a radius an chord.
• Most students should be able to apply multiple circle theorems involving tangents to solve complex problems.
• Some students should be able to prove multiple circle theorems involving tangents.

#### 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 […]
