              Introducing Angles in a Quadrilateral

              Students are introduced to angles in a quadrilateral by investigating how they are formed from two triangles.  More able students learn how to prove this property using algebra.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate a missing angle in a scalene quadrilateral.
              • Most students should be able to calculate missing angles using the unique properties of each quadrilateral.
              • Some students should be able to prove the sum of the angles in a quadrilateral.

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 […]

              Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

              Earlier this week, my school took part in a trial OFSTED inspection as part of getting ready for the new inspection framework in September 2019. This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]

              How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

              The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]
