Volume of a Cone

Students learn how to calculate the volume of a cone using the base area and perpendicular height.  As learning progresses they are taught to use Pythagoras' Theorem to find the perpendicular height when the slanted length is given.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the volume of a cone when given its perpendicular height using the formula.
  • Most students should be able to calculate the volume of a cone using Pythagoras’ Theorem to calculate the perpendicular height.
  • Some students should be able to calculate the volume of a frustum as the difference in volume between two cones

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]

Comparing Datasets using the Mean and Range

In my experience, students, in general, find the concept of a mean straightforward to calculate and understand. However, the mean alone does not provide a complete picture of a set of data. To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]
