Pythagosaurus Rex - prehistoric Pythagoras Problem Solving!

Pythagosaurus Rex - prehistoric Pythagoras Problem Solving!

Continuing the dinosaur theme I made this for my very bright top set year 8 class, although it has worked very well with higher tier GCSE classes also. Students need to work out the perimeter of the different prehistoric creatures that are made from triangles, rectangles, circles etc. There is a class example Pythagosaurus Rex with a scaffolded printable answer sheet. There is also a spot the mistake task to address any misconceptions with Pythagoras before attempting the main sheet.

Treegonometry - problem solving with trigonometry, Pythagoras and trees!

Treegonometry - problem solving with trigonometry, Pythagoras and trees!

My GCSE higher tier class loved this so it was well worth all the effort put into making it. Really applicable to the new GCSE specification, you need to work out the area of six trees of increasing difficulty, made from triangles, rectangles, parallelograms and trapezia. Included is the worksheet in PDF and also Microsoft Publisher format, and a class example on Microsoft Powerpoint.
