# Trigonometrical Graphs

Students learn how to plot and read from trigonometrical graphs between 0 to 360°.  As learning progresses they are challenged to solve trigonometric equations graphically.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to draw the trigonometric graphs of sine, cosine and tangent functions.
• Most students should be able to use the symmetrical properties of trigonometrical graphs to solve simple trigonometric equations.
• Some students should be able to identify equivalent trigonometric functions using sine, cosine and tangent

#### Area of Compound Shapes

To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]

#### Priorities for the Spring Term

At the start of the Spring Term these are three main priorities for me as the Head of Mathematics.

#### Mutually Exclusive Outcomes and Events

I teach mutually exclusive outcomes directly after students have encountered Venn diagrams. This is the fifth Year 8 Probability lesson.
