              Describing Quadrilaterals

              Students learn about describing quadrilaterals using their special features.  More able students are challenged to identify a shape from its properties.  Less able students are encouraged to sketch the shape and then identify the key features.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to describe how a rectangle is similar to a parallelogram and a rhombus is similar to a square.
              • Most students should be able to describe a quadrilateral using its special properties.
              • Some students should be able to identify a quadrilateral from its unique geometrical properties.

              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 […]

              Getting Ready for a New School Year
