# 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.

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 […]

#### How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]
