              Planes of Symmetry in 3D Shapes

              Students learn how to identify the planes of symmetry in 3D shapes.  Learning progresses from sketching the planes of symmetry for a cube and cuboid to constructing scale drawings of prisms on isometric paper.The start of the lesson recaps the properties of 3D shapes for a composite solid.  The plenary challenges students to consider shapes with an infinite number of planes of symmetry.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to identify the planes of symmetry in a cube.
              • Most students should be able to identify the planes of symmetry in a solid shape using isometric paper.
              • Some students should be able to identify and sketch the planes of symmetry for any solid.

              Probability – Distance Learning

              Distance learning unit of work on Probability.

              This unit covers grades 3 to 5 of the U.K. National Curriculum.

              Distance Learning with Mr Mathematics

              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 […]
