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.

Solving Two Step Equations using the Balance Method

An equation is when one expression, or term, is equal to another.  To solve an equation means to find the value of the variable (represented by a letter) that makes the two expressions equal.  There are two types of equations for secondary school mathematics, linear and none-linear.  In this blog I write about how I […]

How to Simplify Surds

When learning how to simplify surds students need to understand the difference between a rational and irrational number. Rational numbers include integers and terminating and repeating decimals. They can be written as a fraction with both the numerator and denominator as integers. An irrational number is a number which, in its decimal form does not […]

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

There are three common methods for sharing an amount to a given ratio.  Depending on the age group and ability range I am teaching I would choose one approach over the other two. The three methods are: Using fractions Unitary method Using a table In this blog I will demonstrate each of the three methods […]
