              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.

              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 […]
