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.

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 […]
