Properties of 3D Shapes

Students learn how to distinguish between the properties of 3D shapes using the correct vocabulary to describe their unique geometrical properties.  As learning progresses they are challenged to visualise and describe solids from nets.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to recognise the vertices, faces and edges properties of 3D shapes in the form of a solid.
  • Most students should be able to recognise the vertices, faces and edge properties of 3D shapes in the form of a net.
  • Some students should be able to visualise the properties of complex 3D shapes.

How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]

Calculations with Percentages

Students learn how to find a percentage of an amount using calculator and non-calculator methods.  As learning progresses they use decimal multipliers to find a percentage change and calculate a simple interest in financial mathematics. This topic follows on from Fractions, Decimals and Percentages and takes place in Year 8 Term 5. Calculations with Percentages […]

Proving Geometrical Relationships using Algebra

Back in May 2017 maths teachers around the country eagerly awaited the first exam for the new GCSE Mathematics syllabus.  Proving geometrical relationships using algebra featured at grade 9.  In Paper 1 of Edexcel’s test paper the last question of the higher tier looked like this. Edexcel wrote about student’s performance on this question in […]
