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

Calculating the Volume of a Pyramid

When calculating the volume of a pyramid we can substitute the values of the length, width and perpendicular height into the formula V = 1/3 lwh.  In my experience this is often provided for the students with little explanation as to why a volume of a pyramid is exactly one third the volume of a […]

Solving 3D Problems using Trigonometry

When teaching solving 3D problems using trigonometry we begin the lesson with a recap of Pythagoras’ Theorem and the three trigonometric ratios.  We do this by matching the ratio and equations to the respective right-angled triangle.   Students are encouraged to work in pairs and to show the diagrams as part of the working out on […]
