Introducing Angles on Parallel Lines

Introducing Angles on Parallel Lines

This worksheet is ideal to use when introducing angles on parallel lines - particularly if you’re doing it with a lower ability class. It gives students practice of using alternate, corresponding and co-interior angles to find missing values, asking them to tick the fact they’ve used each time.

Pressure Reasoning Tasks

Pressure Reasoning Tasks

Several tasks all based on an Equdas GCSE question about pressure. These tasks are designed to improve students’ mathematical reasoning and were created as part of the Mathematical Reasoning at GCSE project run by Cambridge Maths Hub. The tasks vary in difficulty. They are not intended to be used all together; just pick and choose one or two suitable ones for your class. Full credit to the awesome Mr Barton for the Venn diagram template. If you are after similar tasks on other compound measures, you might like https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/density-and-volume-reasoning-tasks-11837600 which explores density, https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/standard-form-reasoning-tasks-11839225 which is based on calculating surface gravity (with some density questions) and https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/speed-and-fuel-economy-reasoning-tasks-11837737 which explores speed and fuel economy. All feedback very welcome. I’d be really interested to hear which tasks you chose and how you used them!
