Forming and Solving Equations when given SIDE LENGTHS and AREA of TWO SHAPES in ALGEBRA

This resource is perfect for teaching problem solving style algebra questions (e.g. suited to the new style 1-9 GCSE questions). It is split into two sections, both involve forming equations with 'x' on both sides and solving. Section 1: Students are given two side lengths in algebra (e.g. opposite sides of a rectangle) that are equal. Students then need to form and solve an equation to find the value of 'x'. Section 2: Students are given a rectangle and a triangle. Students need to use the algebraic side lengths to find the area (e.g. side lengths of 2x + 4 and 3 would create an area of 6x + 12) and then need to form and solve an equations to find the value of 'x'. Extension: Students to substitute their values to find the area. This is also a ueful check to see whether they have the correct answer. Answers included in the notes section of the slide.

Area of Triangles - Full GCSE Maths Lesson

Area of Triangles - Full GCSE Maths Lesson

By considering a right angled triangle as half a rectangle the students are guided through deriving the formula for any triangle. The emphasis is placed on recognizing the perpendicular height for isosceles and scalene triangles with different orientations. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to calculate the area of a right-angled triangle as half of a rectangle. Most students should be able to derive the formula for the area of a triangle and use it. Some students should be able to calculate the area of a compound shape involving rectangles and triangles. Check out my blog at mr-mathematics.com for: * Fully planned and differentiated maths lessons for KS3 and GCSE grades 1 - 9. * Schemes of work based on pedagogy and teacher support. Some students should be able to construct circular shapes using the appropriate terminology and investigate basic circle properties.

Area of Rectangles - Full Foundation GCSE Lesson

Area of Rectangles - Full Foundation GCSE Lesson

Students learn how to find the area of a rectangle first by counting, then repeated addition, basic multiplication and later using the formula Area = Length x Width. As learning progresses students are challenged to consider composite rectangular shapes. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to determine the area of a rectangle by counting the squares inside. Most students should be able to calculate the area of a rectangle by multiplying the length by the width Some students should be able to derive the formula for the area of a rectangle.

Area of Circles Problems

Area of Circles Problems

The lesson is intended to consolidate applying the area of circle formula to solve complex problems. To extend on this in the main part of the lesson semi and quarter circles are considered along with compound circular shapes. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to calculate the area of a circle and semi-circle. Most students should be able to calculate the area of compound shapes involving circles. Some students should be able to calculate the radius or diameter when given the area of a circle.

Area of Circles

Area of Circles

Students are guided though the derivation of the Area of a Circle formula by approximating a circle from its sectors. Once the formula is derived there are several examples provided for the teacher to model its application in calculating the area of a circle and semi-circle. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to derive the formula for the area of a circle. Most students should be able to derive and apply the formula for the area of a circle. Some students should be able to calculate the area of a semi-circle.

Find area and perimeter of  compound shapes

Find area and perimeter of compound shapes

Differentiated worksheet for KS2 Geometry, Area and Perimeter. Suitable for individuals or pairs. Lower abilities have all the measurements they need so can focus on separating the compound shapes, and calculating areas. Middle and Higher abilities have some missing measures that require the student to find before they can calculate the area. Great to be laminated and added to any morning activity box for children to use before lessons.
