3D Trigonometry

To solve problems involving trigonometry in 3D shapes students are taught to identify 2D right-angled triangles and apply the Sine, Cosine and Tangent ratios.  As learning progresses they consider square based pyramids in addition to cubes and cuboids.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate a length in a 3D shape using 2D representations of right angled triangles
  • Most students should be able to calculate an angle in a 3D shape using 2D representations of right angled triangles.
  • Some students should be able to calculate a combination of length and angle in a 3D shape using 2D representations of right angled triangles

Teaching Reciprocals of Numbers and Terms

To introduce teaching reciprocals of numbers and terms I begin the lesson explaining that everything has an opposite.  The opposite of shutting a door is to open it.  The opposite of saying hello is to say goodbye.  Numbers have opposites too we call them reciprocals.

Surface Area of Cylinders

When I teach how to find the surface area of cylinders I like to add a constant level of challenge and enjoyment to the lesson.  Rather than repetitively calculating the surface area of a cylinder I introduce more complex cylindrical shapes.

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 […]
