              Trigonometry – Angles in Right-Angled Triangles

              Students learn how to apply Sin, Cos and Tan to find missing angles in right-angled triangles.  As learning progresses they are challenged to apply additional theorems associated to triangles to solve more complex problems.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to use the Sine and Cosine function to calculate angles in right-angled triangles.
              • Most students should be able to use the Sine, Cosine and Tangent function to calculate angles in right angled triangles.
              • Some students should be able to calculate an angle in an isosceles triangle using Trigonometrical functions.

              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 […]
