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.
Problem solving lesson on two-way tables and frequency trees.
Three typical exam questions to revise on plotting quadratic, cubic and reciprocal graphs.
Linking cumulative frequency graphs to ratio, percentages and financial mathematics.
