              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.

              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 […]
