              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.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
