              Introducing Angles on a Straight Line

              Using angles on a straight line have a sum of 180° students learn how to calculate missing angles and set up and solve simple equations this property.  More able students apply this to recognise and calculate vertically opposite angles.The start of the lesson recaps perpendicular angles.  In the main part students learn how to calculate missing angles on a straight line using the sum of 180°. The plenary challenges students to create a straight line out of three known angles.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to know the sum of the angles on a straight line is 180°.
              • Most students should be able to calculate vertically opposite angles and angles on a straight line.
              • Some students should be able to prove that vertically opposite angles are equal.

              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 […]
