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.

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 […]

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]
