Circles, cylinders and circular shapes follows on from area of 2D shapes and surface area of 3D cuboids and prisms which students study in Term 2 of Year 8.
In this unit students learn how to calculate the circumference and area of circles both as decimals and in terms of π. Learning progresses from 2D circles to finding the total surface area and volume of cylinders.
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.
