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

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 […]

How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]

How Write 3 Part Ratios

When learning how to write 3-part ratios students need to understand how ratios can be made equivalent. The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out.  This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson.    Writing Equivalent Ratios  A few students immediately go […]
