Bisecting an Angle

Students learn how to construct an angle bisector using a pair of compasses and ruler.  As learning progresses they are challenged to use angle bisectors to identify an equidistant path between two lines.The start of the lesson is used to recap using perpendicular bisectors to find the shortest path possible between a line and point.  The plenary challenges students to identify a region that is equidistant between two lines and two points.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to bisect an acute angle using a pair of compasses and ruler.
  • Most students should be able to bisect and angle using a pair of compasses and ruler.
  • Some students should be able to construct an angle bisector to identify an equidistant path.

This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]

How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]
