              Exterior Angles of Polygons

              Progressing on from finding angles in parallel lines students in Year 8 learn how to calculate the exterior angles of polygons.  As learning progressing more able students are challenged to find the number of sides a regular polygon has when given its exterior angle.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to recognise exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.
              • Most students should be able to calculate exterior angles of a polygon.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the number of sides a regular polygon has when given an exterior angle.

              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 […]

              Priorities for the Spring Term

              At the start of the Spring Term these are three main priorities for me as the Head of Mathematics.

              Mutually Exclusive Outcomes and Events

              I teach mutually exclusive outcomes directly after students have encountered Venn diagrams. This is the fifth Year 8 Probability lesson.
