Rotational Symmetry

Students learn how to use tracing paper and visual method to identify the order of rotational symmetry for 2D shapes.  As learning progresses they are challenged to create shapes with a given order of rotational symmetry.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to identify the order of  symmetry for a two dimensional shape.
  • Most students should be able to create shapes with a given symmetry.
  • Some students should be able to investigate different  symmetries for a fixed area.

Calculating the Volume of a Pyramid

When calculating the volume of a pyramid we can substitute the values of the length, width and perpendicular height into the formula V = 1/3 lwh.  In my experience this is often provided for the students with little explanation as to why a volume of a pyramid is exactly one third the volume of a […]

Solving 3D Problems using Trigonometry

When teaching solving 3D problems using trigonometry we begin the lesson with a recap of Pythagoras’ Theorem and the three trigonometric ratios.  We do this by matching the ratio and equations to the respective right-angled triangle.   Students are encouraged to work in pairs and to show the diagrams as part of the working out on […]

Rounding to a significant figure

When I teach rounding to a significant figure, I ask the class to discuss in pairs or small groups a definition for the word significant.  It is a word that all the students have heard before but not all are able to define. After 2 or 3 minutes of conversation I ask the students to […]
