              Pythagoras’ Theorem – Finding the Hypotenuse

              Students learn how to derive and apply Pythagoras' Theorem to find the hypotenuse of right-angled triangles.  As learning progresses they are challenged to apply Pythagoras' Theorem to a range of problems.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate length of the hypotenuse in a right-angled triangle.
              • Most students should be able to calculate length of the hypotenuse in a right-angled triangle when given in a real life context.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the distance between two coordinate pairs.

              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 […]

              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 […]
