              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

              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 […]
