              Properties of Triangles

              Students learn about the properties of triangles.  They explore the various unique triangles that can be made on a square and isometric grid.To begin the lesson students recap the names of common 2D shapes.  In the development phase they are challenged to create siz unique triangles on a 3 by 3 grid.  The end of the lesson challenges them to consider why some properties in triangles are impossible.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to identify an isosceles, equilateral, right-angle and scalene triangle.
              • Most students should be able to know the properties of different types of triangles.
              • Some students should be able to create all the unique triangles on a 4 by 4 grid.

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]

              Getting Ready for a New School Year

              When getting ready for a new school year I have a list of priorities to work through. 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 […]
