              Area of Triangles and Composite Shapes

              Progressing on from finding the area of a triangle students calculate the area of composite shapes made up of triangles and rectangles.  Using right-angled, isosceles and scalene triangles the learning progresses through the level of challenge and complexity in each problem.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the area of a triangle and rectangle.
              • Most students should be able to find the area of a composite shape made from triangles and rectangles.
              • Some students should be able to set up and solve equations involving composite areas.

              Preparing Students for a Mathematics Exam

              Preparing students for a mathematics exam takes time, patience and careful planning.  In this blog I will share my ideas for teaching students how to prepare for their final exams.  These are strategies that have worked well for me and I have see work well for others.  Creative writing to formulate ideas Students need space […]

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
