              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.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              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 […]
