Exact Trigonometric Solutions

Students learn how to solve trigonometrical equations with exact solutions using special triangles.   As learning progresses they use the properties of trigonometric graphs to find additional solutions beyond 90°.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the exact values of Sin and Cos 30°, 45°, 60° and 90°.
  • Most students should be able to solve trigonometric equations such as 2Cos45°.
  • Some students should be able to use trigonometric graphs to find alternative solutions to Sin, Cos and Tan 30°, 45°, 60° and 90°

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]

Plotting and Interpreting Conversion Graphs

Plotting and interpreting conversion graphs requires linking together several mathematical techniques.  Recent U.K. examiner reports indicate there are several common misconceptions when plotting and interpreting conversion graphs.  These include: drawing non-linear scales on the x or y axis, using the incorrect units when converting between imperial and metric measurements, taking inaccurate readings from either axis not […]
