              Cosine Rule – Finding Angles

              Students learn how to derive and apply the Cosine Rule to find missing angles in triangles.  As learning progresses students begin to calculate a combination of angles in adjoining triangles.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate an unknown angle in a triangle using the Cosine rule.
              • Most students should be able to calculate an unknown angle or a bearing using the Cosine rule.
              • Some students should be able to derive and apply the Cosine rule for triangular shapes.

              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 […]
