Lengths in Right-Angled Triangles

Students learn how to use Pythagoras' Theorem to calculate missing lengths in right-angled triangles.    As learning progresses they solve more complex problems involving triangular shapes.
Lengths in Right-Angled Triangles Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to use Pythagoras’ Theorem to find any length of a right-angled triangle.
  • Most students should be able to use Pythagoras’ Theorem to find the height or base of an isosceles triangle.
  • Some students should be able to prove Pythagoras’ Theorem using algebra.

Solving Inequalities using a Number Line

Students should be able to represent the solutions to an inequality on a number line, using set notation or as a list of integer values.  Here’s how I teach using the balance method for solving inequalities using a number line. Matching inequalities, Number sets and Number Lines At the start of the lesson students recap […]

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]
