Students learn how to find the area of various 2D shapes parallelograms, trapezia, compound shapes and circles. Throughout the topic links are made to algebraic reasoning and estimation. This topic takes place in Term 1 of Year 9 and links to volume and surface area later on.
Students are challenged to apply their understanding of the mean, mode, median and range to calculate datasets by setting up and solving equations.
Five, real-life and functional problem solving questions on compound percentage changes.
Home learning project teaching how to create pull up nets for 3D shapes.
