Circumference of Circles Problems

This GCSE mathematics lesson consolidates calculating the circumference of a circle and the perimeter of circular shapes.  Students are encouraged to use a calculator throughout although answers could be left terms of π.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to calculate the circumference of a circle.
• Most students should be able to calculate the perimeter or circumference of circular shapes.
• Some students should be able to calculate the radius or diameter when given the circumference.

Perimeter and Area - Foundation

Area of 2D Shapes - Higher

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 […]
