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.

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 […]

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]
