Angles in a Triangle

Students begin by investigating the sum of the angles in different types of triangles.  As learning progresses they apply the sum of angles in a triangle and other geometrical properties to solve more challenging and complex problems.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the remaining angle in a scalene and right angled triangle when given the two.
  • Most students should be able to use the properties of triangles to calculate angles in isosceles and equilateral triangles when given one.
  • Some students should be able to calculate angles in compound shapes involving multiple types of triangle.

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]

Plotting and Interpreting Conversion Graphs

Plotting and interpreting conversion graphs requires linking together several mathematical techniques.  Recent U.K. examiner reports indicate there are several common misconceptions when plotting and interpreting conversion graphs.  These include: drawing non-linear scales on the x or y axis, using the incorrect units when converting between imperial and metric measurements, taking inaccurate readings from either axis not […]
