              Composite Area of 2D Shapes

              Students learn how to find the composite area of 2D shapes involving triangles, rectangles, trapezia and parallelograms.  By calculating the area of individual shapes students learn how to combine areas to solve more complex problems.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to solve problems involving the area of a trapezium.
              • Most students should be able to solve problems involving the area of composite shapes.
              • Some students should be able to calculate unknown lengths in composite shapes when given the area.

              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 […]

              Priorities for the Spring Term

              At the start of the Spring Term these are three main priorities for me as the Head of Mathematics.

              Mutually Exclusive Outcomes and Events

              I teach mutually exclusive outcomes directly after students have encountered Venn diagrams. This is the fifth Year 8 Probability lesson.
