Pythagoras and Trigonometry and how to spot the difference!

Pythagoras and Trigonometry and how to spot the difference!

I created this resources as my foundation group were struggling on knowing when to use either pythagoras or trigonometry. These were both skills they had learnt and could do but couldn’t quite understand when to use which one. This resource helped them understand which method for which scenario. please review :)

Class Cluedo Maths

Class Cluedo Maths

This converts the classic game Cluedo into three maths lessons. The aim for the children is to find out the location, weapon and the murderer by solving clues the murderer has left. I’ve always taught it as the children are in teams of 3 but it could be bigger or smaller teams. The font on the powerpoint is Baskerville Old Face which isn’t supported on the TES preview. The powerpoint is designed for a Year 6 class. However, it can be adapted to any age range, including secondary school, as everything within it is editable. The clues are meant to be multiple step maths questions and have been left blank for your use. It includes: The Cluedo Powerpoint The clues template on word The clues extention template on word A set of Cluedo cards on publisher A nice touch may be to get some deerstalker hats so the children can answer as the detective.

Regular Polygon Area Problems

Regular Polygon Area Problems

This is a problem solving activity/worksheet that tests multiple levels of understanding related to the topic of area of regular polygons. They are high-level problems to test the most able, although a hint/formula sheet is included to help “differentiate down”. Also included is a differentiated/scaffolded sheet to help break the questions down, too for lower ability. Overall use of surds, Pythagoras Theorem and area formula for polygons are tested. Answers are provided in both surd format and to 2 decimals places.

Roll-a-topic GCSE foundation Geometry Revision

Roll-a-topic GCSE foundation Geometry Revision

A revision activity that can be used for KS3 or foundation GCSE pupils. Can be implemented in lots of ways. I ask pupils to get into pairs, take turns rolling two dice to form a co-ordinate and attempt to solve the corresponding question. Pupil put their initials on problems they have solved and after 30-45 minutes stop and count who has solved the most. Very engaging for year 10 and 11 foundation GCSE pupils. If you use this resource please leave a review! :)

Operation Bearings - Outdoor bearings activity

Operation Bearings - Outdoor bearings activity

This is an adapted activity for practising bearings outdoors. Students are asked to use compasses on their phones to follow instructions on bearings. I had the students dropping a cone at each stage and trailing a piece of string behind them. Following correctly results in an arrow being formed on the ground, this can then lead to questioning like ‘we all started in different places, facing different ways, why are the arrows pointing the same way?’. They can then be extended to write their own instructions or story of bearings to follow. I found the original on a blog but with a photo of the worksheet, I re-wrote it, changed ‘clicks’ to ‘steps’ to work on a smaller scale and added an extension. I used this with a lower set year 9, but could also work with advanced year 7s through to weaker year 10s I think.

Trig-Sta 18 - two nets based on  latest World Cup Telstar, with trig reminders as logos

Trig-Sta 18 - two nets based on latest World Cup Telstar, with trig reminders as logos

I was so intrigued by Matt Parker on You Tube (Geometry of Footballs) that I thought I would see if I could model the latest World Cup ball, the Telstar 18 - these are the results. You have a one sheet one piece net and a DeLuxe 6 sheet model. The shoe company’s logo that usually adorns these balls is based on a 30-60-90 RAT and so I thought some revision notes on Pythag and Trig might work. I’ve included some design notes on the shoe company’s logo in the ppt. So far in the Platonic League, cubes ruled until 1970 - when the Telstar a truncated icosahedron held sway until Germany 2006 with a dodecahedron, then South Africa 2010 with an octahedron. But the cubes fought back in Brazil and now Russia. Tetrahedron anyone?

Trigonometry Formulae card strip

Trigonometry Formulae card strip

A prompt resource for pupils to use either in class or as homework support showing the formulae triangles. there are 2 files, one with just the formulae triangles, the other with formulae triangles, steps to success (steps to follow when approaching a Trig question) and a prompt for answering worded problems. I provided my students with just the triangles and folded each strip of card concertina style, the extra two cards were added as an after thought as to what would make them better.

Crack The Safe - 3D Pythagoras and Trigonometry

Six questions with ten possible answers - students can self-mark these (if their answer is not an option they need to check their working). This involves 3D Pythagoras and trigonometry with a cuboid, a triangular prism and a square based pyramid. I would use this as a starter or plenary.
