Applying Circle Theorems Involving Tangents

Students learn about applying circle theorems involving tangents to solve complex problems.  The alternate segment theorem and angle between between a radius and tangent are used as part of larger and more complicated problems.  More able students are challenged to derive proofs by linking various theorems and angle properties together.The start of the lesson recaps the alternate segment theorem and angle between a radii and tangents.  The plenary takes the students through a typical examination question to assess the progress made.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to solve problems involving the angle between a radius an chord.
  • Most students should be able to apply multiple circle theorems involving tangents to solve complex problems.
  • Some students should be able to prove multiple circle theorems involving tangents.

Rounding to a significant figure

When I teach rounding to a significant figure, I ask the class to discuss in pairs or small groups a definition for the word significant.  It is a word that all the students have heard before but not all are able to define. After 2 or 3 minutes of conversation I ask the students to […]

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]
