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.

Rounding to a significant figure

When I teach rounding to a significant figure, I ask the class to discuss in pairs or small groups a definition for the word significant.  It is a word that all the students have heard before but not all are able to define. After 2 or 3 minutes of conversation I ask the students to […]

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]
