              Similar Shapes Calculations

              Students learn about the relationship between the length, area and volume scale factors of similar shapes.  As learning progresses they apply these relationships to calculate missing dimensions for a range of 2D and 3D shapes.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to use the length and volume scale factors in similar 3D shapes.
              • Most students should be able to use the length, area and volume scale factors in any similar 2D or 3D shape.
              • Some students should be able to use the length, area and volume scale factors in any similar 2D or 3D shape with algebraic dimensions.

              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 […]

              Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

              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 […]
