GCSE Maths - Circle Theorems Complete Unit Pack.

GCSE Maths - Circle Theorems Complete Unit Pack.

This is a unit of work that I have created on Circle Theorems for GCSE Higher Maths consisting of 6 lessons covering all circle theorems. I used this resource with a Year 8 G+T group and does contain everything needed for the exam on circle theorems (there is a slight touch on formal geometric proof but isn't a focal point). There are four PowerPoints with various worksheets as well as an end of unit assessment complete with mark scheme and consolidation, green pen feedback (GPF) tasks. My Year 8s seemed to love this resource and enjoyed the stretch so the long time that it took to make it seems incredibly worthwhile! Feedback is deeply appreciated, Fin :)

Circles Area and Circumference

Circles Area and Circumference

This bundle is designed to cover the various aspects of finding the area and circumference of circles through to finding area and perimeter of sectors.

CIRCLES - Vocabulary

CIRCLES - Vocabulary

This colourful powerpoint uses diagrams, animations and photographs to introduce more vocabulary needed for working with circles e.g. chord, arc, sector and segment whilst revising the words introduced in 'Circles- Introduction' ( radius, diameter, circumference, centre, circular, semicircle ). It is aimed at GCSE students and below, both at foundation and higher level. The later slides show the connections between circles and 3D shapes and extend vocabulary to sphere, hemisphere, cylinder, ellipse, cone and concentric circles. The slides have notes and suggestions accompanying them. The worksheets further reinforce the names of different parts of circles and one is designed to make students draw and measure their own diagrams and introduces ideas they will meet later when studying circle theorems. The video shows how to draw a hexagon by constructing it inside a circle using arcs. Some students find drawing circles very difficult and anything that motivates them to practise is useful. DfE references for GCSE 9-1 G9, G1, G4, G12 G9 'Identify and apply circle definitions and properties, including : centre, radius, chord, diameter, circumference, tangent, arc, sector and segment.

Circumference of Circles Problems

Circumference of Circles Problems

This GCSE mathematics lesson consolidates calculating the circumference of a circle and the perimeter of circular shapes. Students are encouraged to use a calculator throughout although answers could be left terms of π. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to calculate the circumference of a circle. Most students should be able to calculate the perimeter or circumference of circular shapes. Some students should be able to calculate the radius or diameter when given the circumference. 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.

Circumference of Circles

Circumference of Circles

Students are taken through the process of discovering the relationship between the radius, diameter and circumference of a circle. By drawing three different sized circles, measuring their radii, diameter and circumferences students tabulate their results and look for patterns. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to derive and use the formulae for the circumference of a circle in terms of its diameter. Most students should be able to derive and use the formulae for the circumference of a circle in terms of its radius. Some students should be able to calculate the radius and diameter of a circle when given its circumference.

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.
