              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.

              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 […]
