Pythagoras’ Theorem in 3D

Students learn how to calculate unknown lengths in cuboids and other solids by applying Pythagoras' Theorem in 3D shapes.  As learning progresses they are challenged to find lengths in composite shapes involving square based pyramids and cuboids.At the start of the lesson students recap applying Pythagoras' Theorem to the perimeter of 2D shapes.  The plenary challenges students to calculate the perpendicular height of a composite shape.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the long diagonal in a cuboid using Pythagoras’ Theorem.
  • Most students should be able to apply Pythagoras’ Theorem to calculate unknown lengths in 3D shapes.
  • Some students should be able to derive the formula for the longest length of a cuboid using Pythagoras’ Theorem

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 […]

Arithmetic and Geometric Sequences

Students learn how to generate and describe arithmetic and geometric sequences on a  position-to-term basis.  Learning progresses from plotting and reading coordinates in the first quadrant to describing geometric sequences using the nth term. This unit takes place in Term 4 of Year 10 and is followed by the equations of straight line graphs. Arithmetic […]
