              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.

              With schools around the United Kingdom closed to most students it is important every child has access to engaging maths lessons through distance learning.

              How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

              There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
