# 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.

#### 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 […]
