Scale Drawings of Bearings

Using their knowledge of triangles students learn how to construct scale drawings of bearings.  As learning progresses students move from constructing scale drawings of bearings to interpreting diagrams using ratio.The start of the lesson recaps calculating angles in scalene and isosceles triangles.  The plenary challenges students to apply additional construction techiniques such as bisectors to find the bearing between two towns.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to use ASA to construct and interpret bearings and scale drawings.
  • Most students should be able use ASA and SSS to construct and interpret bearings and scale drawings.
  • Some students should be able to construct and interpret bearings and scale drawings.

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]

Plotting and Interpreting Conversion Graphs

Plotting and interpreting conversion graphs requires linking together several mathematical techniques.  Recent U.K. examiner reports indicate there are several common misconceptions when plotting and interpreting conversion graphs.  These include: drawing non-linear scales on the x or y axis, using the incorrect units when converting between imperial and metric measurements, taking inaccurate readings from either axis not […]

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 […]
