              Angles in Parallel Lines

              This lesson is intended to guide the class through discovering alternate, corresponding and interior angles in parallel lines.  By defining these properties for themselves students are more likely to understand their origins and be better able to apply them when calculating unknown angles.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to recognise alternate and corresponding angle to be equal and interior angles to have a sum of 180 degrees.
              • Most students should be able to calculate unknown angles in parallel lines using a alternate, interior or corresponding property.
              • Some students should be able to calculate unknown angles in parallel lines using a combination of alternate, corresponding and interior angles

              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 […]
