Trigonometry – Area of Triangles

Students learn how to derive and apply the area formulae for non-right-angles.  As learning progresses they are challenged to apply additional formulae to calculate unknown dimensions.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the area of a non-right-angled if the value of two sides and the adjoining angle are known.
  • Most students should be able to calculate the area of a triangle using a combination of the Cosine and Area formulae.
  • Some students should be able to derive and solve equations using the Area of Triangle formula.

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

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 […]
