Problem Solving with Angles of Polygons

Students learn how to apply the interior and exterior angle properties of polygons to solve a variety of problems.  As learning progresses they combine multiple angle properties for regular and irregular polygons.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate an interior angle of a regular polygon.
  • Most students should be able to apply the interior angle and exterior angle properties of polygons.
  • Some students should be able to derive and apply the formulae for interior and exterior angle of regular polygons.

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 […]

Calculating the Volume of a Pyramid

When calculating the volume of a pyramid we can substitute the values of the length, width and perpendicular height into the formula V = 1/3 lwh.  In my experience this is often provided for the students with little explanation as to why a volume of a pyramid is exactly one third the volume of a […]
