Area of Circles Problems

The lesson is intended to consolidate applying the area of circle formula to solve complex problems.  To extend on this in the main part of the lesson semi and quarter circles are considered along with compound circular shapes. 
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the area of a circle and semi-circle.
  • Most students should be able to calculate the area of compound shapes involving circles.
  • Some students should be able to calculate the radius or diameter when given the area of a circle.

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 […]
