# Circle Theorems

Students are taken through the discovery of various circle theorems. The theorems include, angle at the centre is twice the angle at the circumference, angles in the same segment and angles in cyclic quadrilaterals.

Each circle theorem has an associated proof in the additional resources section.  Once the theorems are discovered there is opportunity for students to consolidate their learning by calculating unknown angles.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to discover the relationships between the angles at the centre and circumference of a circle, opposite angles in cyclic quadrilaterals and angles at the circumference in the same segment.
• Most students should be able to discover the three theorems and apply them individually to calculate missing angles.
• Some students should be able to discover and apply the three properties and apply them to calculate angles involving multiple theorems.

#### 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 […]
