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.

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 […]
