Discover Pythagoras

Discover Pythagoras

Worksheet leading pupils to discover and prove the Pythagoras Theorem. Pupils need to be aware of vectors as these are used to describe the right-angled triangles - though the worksheet does explain vector notation. There are three pages to the worksheet. Pages 1 and 2 lead pupils through specific right-angled triangles; page 3 helps them generalise their results into the Pythagoras Theorem.

Vectors (Workbook)

Vectors (Workbook)

This booklet is very good for teaching Vectors. It completely covers the requirements of GCSE and gives lots of good examples. It starts with column vectors and builds into vector diagrams, finishing with the most typical type of questions that are seen in GCSE exams. I have used this booklet extremely effectively with my students and they gain a better understanding of the topic than the students in parallel classes that work through the text book. -- Note that the booklet is designed to be printed as A4, but I quite often reduce it to A5 and it still does the job. -- Detailed solutions are included.

Vector Notation Starter

Vector Notation Starter

This is a simple and quick exercise to match 4 translations with 4 vectors. This could of course be used as a quick recap at the start of a lesson having previously introduced the concept however I have most often used this BEFORE I teach students about vector notation. We explore the idea of translation using words like up, down, left, right etc... and then I give them the exercise to see if they can work it out for themselves. They always do :) One fun way to introduce translations is by showing a video of American line dancing! Youtube has plenty.

GCSE 9-1 Exam Question Practice (Vectors)

GCSE 9-1 Exam Question Practice (Vectors)

This carefully selected compilation of exam questions has fully-worked solutions designed for students to go through at home. This can save a lot of valuable time in class. Click -->https://tes.com/.../Exam Question Practice to download question compilations on 40 other topics. -- These 'booklets' cover the full range of skills expected at GCSE for each topic. The questions in this particular compilation include using diagrammatic and column representation of vectors to find resultants, and using vectors to construct geometric arguments and proof (needed for the Higher Tier). I usually print these questions as an A5 booklet and issue them in class or give them out as a homework. I also make them available for a student who wants to do independent study.

Geometry app with Augmented Reality

Geometry app with Augmented Reality

An innovative and exciting way of learning geometry through visualization and interaction. CleverBooks app that is easily launched on a tablet or mobile phone (based on Android or Apple) through a collection of flash cards/ printouts. The program features 3D models with Augmented Reality for main geometric shapes. Children can directly interact with the shapes and this aims to improve their spatial visualization. What can be learned with the geometry app: View geometric 2D and 3D shapes from all angles Voiceover for all the shapes and interactions made by kids See sides of 3D shapes unfold into 2D shapes (decomposition is visualized!) Check main properties of 3D shapes Find out about different variations of 2D shapes Learn and understand fractions Compare and identify objects in the environment with geometric shapes using Augmented Reality Develop spatial imagination by observing 3D and flat models Learn properties of geometric 2D and 3D shapes and fractions Interactive knowledge test Age group: 7-11 y.o. Language: English Learning Outcomes: Cognitive Development Learning geometry Development of visualization skills, imagination Understanding of abstract objects applied on geometry Critical Thinking Engagement and Usability Creative Development Life Skills New technology acquisition Academic Relevance
