              Trigonometry Introduction

              Students discover the three trigonometric ratios Sin, Cos and Tan through constructions.  As learning progresses they are challenged to apply the three ratios to solve problems involving right-angled triangles.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able identify the three trigonometric ratios of a right-angled triangle.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the Opposite and Adjacent side using Sin θor Cos θ
              • Some students should be able to solve real life problems involving the lengths of any side of a right angled triangle using SOH CAH TOA

              Preparing Students for a Mathematics Exam

              Preparing students for a mathematics exam takes time, patience and careful planning.  In this blog I will share my ideas for teaching students how to prepare for their final exams.  These are strategies that have worked well for me and I have see work well for others.  Creative writing to formulate ideas Students need space […]

              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 […]
