              Volume of Cuboids and Prisms

              Students learn how to calculate the volume of prisms using the cross sectional area and depth.  As learning progresses they consider composite and triangular prisms. To introduce the idea of calculating the volume of prisms the class determine, whether by counting or multiplication, the volume of three cuboids at the start of the lesson.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the volume of a cuboid using the cross sectional area and depth
              • Most students should be able to calculate the volume of a cylinder and triangular prism using the cross sectional area and depth.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the volume of any prism by identifying the area of the cross section

              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 […]
