Students learn how to recognise and prove congruency using various angle properties and geometrical facts.  As learning progresses they consider the difference between similarity and congruence.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to understand that congruent shapes have equal angles and lengths.
              • Most students should be able to recognise SSS, SAS, ASA properties to prove congruency.
              • Some students should be able to show congruency through reasoned algebraic proof.

              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 […]
