              Finding the Circumference of a Circle

              Students learn about finding the circumference of a circle as a multiple of π and as a decimal correct to 3 significant figures.  As learning progresses students are challenged to find the perimeter of semi-circles and sectors.At the start of the lesson students recap finding the perimeter of complex shapes using a right-angled triangle.  The plenary challenges students to apply their learning to a real work problem.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to find the circumference of a circle as a multiple of pi when the diameter is given.
              • Most students should be able to find the circumference of a circle to 3 significant figures.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the arc length of a sector.

              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

              When getting ready for a new school year I have a list of priorities to work through. Knowing my team have all the information and resources they need to teach their students gives me confidence we will start the term in the best possible way.  Mathematics Teaching and Learning Folder All teachers receive a folder […]
