              Pythagoras’ Theorem – Shorter Sides

              Students learn how to calculate a shorter side of a right-angled triangle using Pythagoras' Theorem.  As learning progresses they are challenged to apply Pythagoras' Theorem to more complex shapes.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate either of the two short sides in a right-angled triangle using Pythagoras’ Theorem
              • Most students should be able to calculate the perpendicular height of an isosceles triangle when given its hypotenuse and base.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the area of an equilateral and isosceles triangle by calculating either its base or perpendicular height.

              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 […]
