              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°.

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 […]
