Area of Compound Shapes

https://youtu.be/qbl0d8ofRwc To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be […]

Priorities for the Spring Term

At the start of the Spring Term these are three main priorities for me as the Head of Mathematics.

Mutually Exclusive Outcomes and Events

I teach mutually exclusive outcomes directly after students have encountered Venn diagrams. This is the fifth Year 8 Probability lesson.
