Constructing Loci and Equidistant Paths

Students learn how to construct loci and equidistant paths using angle bisectors and construction techniques.  There are several examples provided for the teacher to demonstrate as well as for the students to consolidate their learning.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to construct angle bisectors to identify an equidistant path between two lines.
  • Most students should be able to perpendicular bisectors to identify an equidistant path between two points.
  • Some students should be able to combine loci to identify regions or points within a given area.

Calculating the Volume of a Pyramid

When calculating the volume of a pyramid we can substitute the values of the length, width and perpendicular height into the formula V = 1/3 lwh.  In my experience this is often provided for the students with little explanation as to why a volume of a pyramid is exactly one third the volume of a […]

Solving 3D Problems using Trigonometry

When teaching solving 3D problems using trigonometry we begin the lesson with a recap of Pythagoras’ Theorem and the three trigonometric ratios.  We do this by matching the ratio and equations to the respective right-angled triangle.   Students are encouraged to work in pairs and to show the diagrams as part of the working out on […]

Rounding to a significant figure

When I teach rounding to a significant figure, I ask the class to discuss in pairs or small groups a definition for the word significant.  It is a word that all the students have heard before but not all are able to define. After 2 or 3 minutes of conversation I ask the students to […]
