# Bearings and Scale Drawings

Students learn how to draw and measure bearings and how to use the angle properties of parallel lines to calculate back bearings.  As learning progresses students are challenged to solve orientating problems using scale drawings.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to measure the bearing from one point to another.
• Most students should be able to create a sketch map and accurate construction to scale using bearings.
• Some students should be able to prove a ‘back bearing’ using the properties of angles in parallel lines.

#### 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 […]
