Properties of 3D Shapes

Students learn how to distinguish between the properties of 3D shapes using the correct vocabulary to describe their unique geometrical properties.  As learning progresses they are challenged to visualise and describe solids from nets.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to recognise the vertices, faces and edges properties of 3D shapes in the form of a solid.
  • Most students should be able to recognise the vertices, faces and edge properties of 3D shapes in the form of a net.
  • Some students should be able to visualise the properties of complex 3D shapes.

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 […]

Solving 3D Problems using Trigonometry

When teaching solving 3D problems using trigonometry we begin the lesson with a recap of Pythagoras’ Theorem and the three trigonometric ratios.  We do this by matching the ratio and equations to the respective right-angled triangle.   Students are encouraged to work in pairs and to show the diagrams as part of the working out on […]

Rounding to a significant figure

When I teach rounding to a significant figure, I ask the class to discuss in pairs or small groups a definition for the word significant.  It is a word that all the students have heard before but not all are able to define. After 2 or 3 minutes of conversation I ask the students to […]
