Constructing Angle Bisectors

Students learn how to construct angle bisectors using a pair of compasses and a straight edge.  The lesson covers bisecting acute, obtuse and right angles to constructing perpendicular bisectors and reflex angles.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to construct an acute angle bisector.
  • Most students should be able to bisect an acute, obtuse, right angle and straight line.
  • Some students should be able to find the equidistant point in a polygon using angle bisectors.

Solving Problems with Angles in Parallel Lines

Solving problems with angles in parallel lines is like solving a murder mystery.  One clue leads on to the next and the next until the murderer is found.  However, it doesn’t end there.  The detectives need to explain their reasoning in court using the relevant laws and procedures should the murderer plead not guilty.  If […]

Solving Two Step Equations using the Balance Method

An equation is when one expression, or term, is equal to another.  To solve an equation means to find the value of the variable (represented by a letter) that makes the two expressions equal.  There are two types of equations for secondary school mathematics, linear and none-linear.  In this blog I write about how I […]

How to Simplify Surds

When learning how to simplify surds students need to understand the difference between a rational and irrational number. Rational numbers include integers and terminating and repeating decimals. They can be written as a fraction with both the numerator and denominator as integers. An irrational number is a number which, in its decimal form does not […]
