              Translating Shapes using Vectors

              Students learn about translating shapes using vectors. As learning progresses they move from performing translations on a grid to describing translations using vector notation.The start of the lesson is used to recap describing a rotation or reflection that will map an object onto an image. The plenary is based around a jigsaw puzzle where students give their answers in the form of translation vectors.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to translate an object on a grid using vector notation.
              • Most students should be able to perform and describe translations on a grid using vector notation.
              • Some students should be able to perform and describe a translation on Cartesian axes using a translation vector.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              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 […]

              Getting Ready for a New School Year

              When getting ready for a new school year I have a list of priorities to work through. Knowing my team have all the information and resources they need to teach their students gives me confidence we will start the term in the best possible way.  Mathematics Teaching and Learning Folder All teachers receive a folder […]
