              Sine Rule

              Students learn how to derive and apply the Sine rule to find missing angle in triangular shapes.  As learning progresses they are challenged to apply additional properties associated to triangles to solve more complex problems.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to identify the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle as the longest side.
              • Most students should be able to calculate length of the hypotenuse in a right angled triangle.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the length of the hypotenuse in an isosceles triangle when given its base and perpendicular height.

              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 […]
