              Arc Length of Sectors

              Students learn how to calculate the arc length of a sector by considering it as a proportion of a complete circle.  As learning progresses they use calculator and non-calculator methods to solve more complex problems.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the arc length of a major and minor sector.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the perimeter around a sector.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the perimeter of compound shapes involving sectors

              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 […]
