              Angles of Elevation and Depression

              Students learn how to construct and use scale drawings to measure angles of elevation and depression and unknown lengths. As learning progresses students are challenged to decide their scale and investigate similar shapes.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to construct a scale drawing of a triangle.
              • Most students should be able to construct a scale drawing of a triangle to measure a length or angle.
              • Some students should be able to draw and measure line segments and angles in geometric figures, including interpreting scale drawings.

              Area of Compound Shapes

              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 defined […]

              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.
