              Pythagoras’ Theorem in 3D

              Students learn how to calculate unknown lengths in cuboids and other solids by applying Pythagoras' Theorem in 3D shapes.  As learning progresses they are challenged to find lengths in composite shapes involving square based pyramids and cuboids.At the start of the lesson students recap applying Pythagoras' Theorem to the perimeter of 2D shapes.  The plenary challenges students to calculate the perpendicular height of a composite shape.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the long diagonal in a cuboid using Pythagoras’ Theorem.
              • Most students should be able to apply Pythagoras’ Theorem to calculate unknown lengths in 3D shapes.
              • Some students should be able to derive the formula for the longest length of a cuboid using Pythagoras’ Theorem

              Probability – Distance Learning

              Distance learning unit of work on Probability.

              This unit covers grades 3 to 5 of the U.K. National Curriculum.

              Distance Learning with Mr Mathematics

              With schools around the United Kingdom closed to most students it is important every child has access to engaging maths lessons through distance learning.

              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 […]
