              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.

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
