              Surface Area of a Cone

              Students learn how to calculate the curved surface area of a cone and total surface area of a cone by considering the net shape of a sector and circle.  As learning progress they calculate the are of complex composite shapes involving cones.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the curved surface area of a cone using the formula.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the total surface area of a cone using Pythagoras’ Theorem to calculate the slant.
              • Some students should be able to manipulate the formula for the area of a cone to calculate the radius, slant or perpendicular height.

              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 […]
