Measuring and Naming Angles

Students learn about the different types of angles and how to measure them to within one degree.  As learning progresses they are challenged to measure and draw reflex angles using a 180° protractor.At the start of the lesson students investigate the perpendicular angles using a clock face.  In the main part they learn how to use a 180° protractor to measure acute, obtuse and reflex angles.  The end of lesson recaps students learning through a handout.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to measure and draw an acute and obtuse angle to within 2°.
  • Most students should be able to measure and draw an acute, obtuse and reflex angle to within 2°.
  • Some students should be able to measure and draw an acute, obtuse and reflex angle to within 1°.

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 […]

Plotting and Interpreting Conversion Graphs

Plotting and interpreting conversion graphs requires linking together several mathematical techniques.  Recent U.K. examiner reports indicate there are several common misconceptions when plotting and interpreting conversion graphs.  These include: drawing non-linear scales on the x or y axis, using the incorrect units when converting between imperial and metric measurements, taking inaccurate readings from either axis not […]
