              Trigonometry – Lengths in Right-Angled Triangles

              Students learn how to calculate unknown lengths in right-angled triangles using Sin, Cos and Tan.  As learning progresses they are challenged to apply other facts about triangles to solve more complex problems.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the length of a right angled triangle using the Sine and Cosine functions.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the length of a right angled triangle using the Sine, Cosine and Tangent functions.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the length of a polygon edge by considering its right-angled triangular components.

              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.
