              Vector Addition and Subtraction

              Students learn how to perform vector addition and subtraction using column notation.  As learning progresses students begin to use vectors to define and prove geometrical properties.  Lesson comes with a Vectors worksheet.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to use vectors to describe the position of one object in respect of another.
              • Most students should be able to use geometrical properties of parallelograms and trapezia to add and subtract given vectors.
              • Some students should be able to prove the geometrical properties of shapes using vector addition.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              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 […]
