Tangents Circle Theorems

This lesson guides the class through the discovery of circle theorems involving tangents. The theorems include, the angle between a tangent and radius and angles in alternate segments.Each circle theorem has an associated proof in the additional resources section. Once the theorems are discovered there is opportunity for students to consolidate their learning by calculating unknown angles.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to discover that a tangent and radius intersecting at the circumference of a circle and perpendicular.
  • Most students should be able to discover that a tangent and radius intersecting at the circumference of a circle and perpendicular and that angles in alternate segments are equal.
  • Some students should be able to derive both theorems relating to tangents at the circumference of a circle and apply them to solve complex problems involving multiple circle theorems.

How to Simplify Surds

When learning how to simplify surds students need to understand the difference between a rational and irrational number. Rational numbers include integers and terminating and repeating decimals. They can be written as a fraction with both the numerator and denominator as integers. An irrational number is a number which, in its decimal form does not […]

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]
