Trigonometry - Problems with Right-Angled Triangles

Students learn how to calculate unknown lengths and angles in right-angled triangles using Sin, Cos and Tan.  As learning progresses they are challenged to apply other facts about triangles to solve more complex problems.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate an angle in a right angled triangle using trigonometrical relationships.
  • Most students should be able to calculate a combination of angle and length in a right angled triangle using trigonometrical relationships.
  • Some students should be able to demonstrate geometrical relationships in right angled triangle using trigonometrical relationships.

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 […]
