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.

Comparing Datasets using the Mean and Range

In my experience, students, in general, find the concept of a mean straightforward to calculate and understand. However, the mean alone does not provide a complete picture of a set of data. To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]

Solving Problems with Angles in Parallel Lines

Solving problems with angles in parallel lines is like solving a murder mystery.  One clue leads on to the next and the next until the murderer is found.  However, it doesn’t end there.  The detectives need to explain their reasoning in court using the relevant laws and procedures should the murderer plead not guilty.  If […]

Solving Two Step Equations using the Balance Method

An equation is when one expression, or term, is equal to another.  To solve an equation means to find the value of the variable (represented by a letter) that makes the two expressions equal.  There are two types of equations for secondary school mathematics, linear and none-linear.  In this blog I write about how I […]
