Constructing Loci and Equidistant Paths

Students learn how to construct loci and equidistant paths using angle bisectors and construction techniques.  There are several examples provided for the teacher to demonstrate as well as for the students to consolidate their learning.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to construct angle bisectors to identify an equidistant path between two lines.
• Most students should be able to perpendicular bisectors to identify an equidistant path between two points.
• Some students should be able to combine loci to identify regions or points within a given area.

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 […]
