Circle Theorems

Students are taken through the discovery of various circle theorems. The theorems include, angle at the centre is twice the angle at the circumference, angles in the same segment and angles in cyclic quadrilaterals.Each circle theorem has an associated proof in the additional resources section.  Once the theorems are discovered there is opportunity for students to consolidate their learning by calculating unknown angles.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to discover the relationships between the angles at the centre and circumference of a circle, opposite angles in cyclic quadrilaterals and angles at the circumference in the same segment.
  • Most students should be able to discover the three theorems and apply them individually to calculate missing angles.
  • Some students should be able to discover and apply the three properties and apply them to calculate angles involving multiple theorems.

Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

Earlier this week, my school took part in a trial OFSTED inspection as part of getting ready for the new inspection framework in September 2019. 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 […]
