Bearings and Scale Drawings

Students learn how to draw and measure bearings and how to use the angle properties of parallel lines to calculate back bearings.  As learning progresses students are challenged to solve orientating problems using scale drawings.
 Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to measure the bearing from one point to another.
  • Most students should be able to create a sketch map and accurate construction to scale using bearings.
  • Some students should be able to prove a ‘back bearing’ using the properties of angles in parallel lines.

How to Simplify Surds

When learning how to simplify surds students need to understand the difference between a rational and irrational number. Rational numbers include integers and terminating and repeating decimals. They can be written as a fraction with both the numerator and denominator as integers. An irrational number is a number which, in its decimal form does not […]

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

There are three common methods for sharing an amount to a given ratio.  Depending on the age group and ability range I am teaching I would choose one approach over the other two.

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]
