              Area of Irregular Shapes

              Students learn how to find the area of irregular shapes by grouping.  As learning progresses they are challenged to consider the range of accuracy for their solutions and more complex irregular areas.  An accompanying worksheet that matches the interactive whiteboard presentation is included to aid pace.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to measure an irregular area involving non rectilinear polygons.
              • Most students should be able to measure an irregular area of shapes with curved edges.
              • Some students should be able to measure a irregular areas of compound shapes.

              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 […]
