Angles in a Quadrilateral

Students extend their understanding of angles in a triangles to calculate missing angles in a quadrilateral.  As learning progresses they calculate unknown angles using a combination of angle properties, such as, angles about a point, on a line and in triangle.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should understand that a quadrilateral is made up to two triangles and therefore has a sum of 360 degrees.
  • Most students should be able to calculate an unknown angle with a quadrilateral.
  • Some students should be able to prove there are 360° within a quadrilateral by considering external angles

Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

Earlier this week, my school took part in a trial OFSTED inspection as part of getting ready for the new inspection framework in September 2019. This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]

How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]

How Write 3 Part Ratios

When learning how to write 3-part ratios students need to understand how ratios can be made equivalent. The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out.  This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson.    Writing Equivalent Ratios  A few students immediately go […]
