              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

              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 […]
