Unit 16H Angles and Trigonometry - Angles in circles one - 16-3

Hi folks, firstly I just wanted to say thanks to TES and all those who are sharing their fantastic resources. All I have done is utilised some of these resources and made a flipchart with a humble contribution from myself. Some of you will recognise parts of your resources embedded in the flip. I have TEEPED the lesson as well. The lesson has been created with reference to the new edexcel GCSE 9-1 grade boundaries.Please feel free to ameliorate it further.

Angles in polygons, including exterior and exterior; Angles within circles; Pictures, Videos and Worksheets

Angles in polygons, including exterior and exterior; Angles within circles; Pictures, Videos and Worksheets

This is a bundle of 6 of my resources regarding angles! 5 documents are generators, which means at the click of any button you are able to generate a new worksheet. This provides a calm atmosphere in learning, familiarity in resources for students and can demonstrate progress over time. 3 of these documents are worksheet generators, which require students to find angles within polygons by viewing the polygons themselves. The easiest worksheet just regards triangles and straight lines. The medium worksheet involves quadrilaterals, simple algebra, and straight lines. Whereas the last worksheet involves a multitude of polygons. Each come with a supporting tab call a ‘cheat sheet’, containing an answer for every question listed on a separate bit of paper. These can be individually cut up and folded along the dotted line to act as supporting answers, You can use thesse at your discretion to support the least able, enabling these worksheets to be low access high challenge. Furthermore, another of these documents also requires you to find missing angles and lengths within various polygons by using algebra. Helpfully there is are hints which can either be included, or not included on the sheet, as they are on the sheet’s extremities so can easily can be cut off. Another worksheet regards angles, but this time they are entirely worded question. Testing students knowledge on exterior angles as well as interior angles this time. Finally the last document is a powerpoint involving 5 videos of me hand drawing different circle theorems. Each of the videos are silent but supported by questioning on the screen. This has proved to be a very useful tool in maximising student engagement, and getting the students to come up with the questions and answers themselves whilst watching the video, whilst you are able to help individuals or manage behaviour as required. Each of the videos, has futher suggestion points, and each can be paused and resumed at a pace that suits your class. Please review if you found useful :)

Maths / STEM / Science Project Lesson - Density of Metals (Density, Ratio, Volume)

Maths / STEM / Science Project Lesson - Density of Metals (Density, Ratio, Volume)

This is a Maths/STEM project lesson based around calculating and comparing the density of different metals. Students have to first calculate and rank the densities of the metals, than answer questions based on combining different ratios of metals. These questions involve working out density, volume or mass from compound metal alloys of differing ratios. The lesson was pitched at year 10, and has a support sheet to enable access for foundation students. The lesson was designed to last 75 minutes, but actually the difficult quesitons in the sheet means it could easily last 90 minutes or more if required.

Circle theorem and algebra

Circle theorem and algebra

Few questions I wrote where students have to set up and solve equations, using their knowledge of circle theorems. Please note on the handwritten sheet, I made a mistake. One of the cyclic quadrilaterals and simultaneous equations does not work, the equations are parallel. I usually sell it as “I have made one deliberate mistake”

Fully resourced lesson on geometric patterns is Islamic Art

Fully resourced lesson on geometric patterns is Islamic Art

Most suitable for key stage 3. Looks at geometry in Islamic Art. Students then create their designs using either compasses (higher groups) or isometric/square grids (may be better with lower groups). Probably good for end of module/term lesson Resources in the lesson gathered from all over the place, but thought it would be useful to have in one place as a single lesson.

Roll-a-topic GCSE foundation Geometry Revision

Roll-a-topic GCSE foundation Geometry Revision

A revision activity that can be used for KS3 or foundation GCSE pupils. Can be implemented in lots of ways. I ask pupils to get into pairs, take turns rolling two dice to form a co-ordinate and attempt to solve the corresponding question. Pupil put their initials on problems they have solved and after 30-45 minutes stop and count who has solved the most. Very engaging for year 10 and 11 foundation GCSE pupils. If you use this resource please leave a review! :)

Circle theorems lesson 8

Circle theorems lesson 8

A complete lesson on the theorem that a perpendicular bisector of a chord passes through the centre of a circle. Assumes pupils can already use the theorems that: The angle at the centre is twice the angle at the circumference The angle in a semicircle is 90 degrees Angles in the same same segment are equal .Opposite angles in a cyclic quadrilateral sum to 180 degrees A tangent is perpendicular to a radius Angles in alternate segments are equal Tangents from a point are equal so that more varied questions can be asked. Please see my other resources for lessons on these theorems. Activities included: Starter: An animation reminding pupils about perpendicular bisectors, with the intention being that they would then practice this a few times with ruler and compass. Main: Instructions for pupils to investigate the theorem, by drawing a circle, chord and then bisecting the chord. Slides to clarify the ‘two-directional’ nature of the theorem. Examples of missing angle or length problems using the theorem (plus another theorem, usually) A similar set of eight questions for pupils to consolidate. An extension prompt for pupils to use the theorem to locate the exact centre of a given circle. Plenary: An animation of the proof without words, the intention being that pupils try to describe the steps. Printable worksheets and answers included. Please review if you buy, as any feedback is appreciated!

Circle theorems lesson 7

Circle theorems lesson 7

A complete lesson on the theorem that tangents from a point are equal. Assumes pupils can already use the theorems that: The angle at the centre is twice the angle at the circumference The angle in a semicircle is 90 degrees Angles in the same same segment are equal .Opposite angles in a cyclic quadrilateral sum to 180 degrees A tangent is perpendicular to a radius Angles in alternate segments are equal so that more varied questions can be asked. Please see my other resources for lessons on these theorems. Activities included: Starter: Instructions for pupils to discover the theorem, by drawing tangents and measuring. Main: Slides to clarify why this theorem usually involves isosceles triangles. Related examples, finding missing angles. A set of eight questions using the theorem (and usually another theorem or angle fact). Two very sneaky extension questions.

Circle theorems lesson 6

Circle theorems lesson 6

A complete lesson on the alternate segment theorem. Assumes pupils can already use the theorems that: The angle at the centre is twice the angle at the circumference The angle in a semicircle is 90 degrees Angles in the same same segment are equal .Opposite angles in a cyclic quadrilateral sum to 180 degrees A tangent is perpendicular to a radius so that more varied questions can be asked. Please see my other resources for lessons on these theorems. Activities included: Starter: Some basic questions to check pupils know what the word subtend means. Main: Animated slides to define what an alternate segment is. An example where the angle in the alternate segment is found without reference to the theorem (see cover image), followed by three similar questions for pupils to try. I’ve done this because if pupils can follow these steps, they can prove the theorem. However this element of the lesson could be bypassed or used later, depending on the class. Multiple choice questions where pupils simply have to identify which angles match as a result of the theorem. In my experience, they always struggle to identify the correct angle, so these questions really help. Seven examples of finding missing angles using the theorem (plus a second theorem for most of them). A set of eight similar problems for pupils to consolidate. An extension with two variations -an angle chase of sorts. Plenary: An animation of the proof without words, the intention being that pupils try to describe the steps. Printable worksheets and answers included. Please review if you buy, as any feedback is appreciated.

Circle theorems lesson 5

Circle theorems lesson 5

A complete lesson on the theorem that a tangent is perpendicular to a radius. Assumes pupils can already use the theorems that: The angle at the centre is twice the angle at the circumference The angle in a semicircle is 90 degrees Angles in the same same segment are equal .Opposite angles in a cyclic quadrilateral sum to 180 degrees so that more varied questions can be asked. Please see my other resources for lessons on these theorems. Activities included: Starter: Some basic recap questions on theorems 1 to 4 Main: Instructions for pupils to discover the rule, by drawing tangents and measuring the angle to the centre. A set of six examples, mostly using more than one theorem. A set of eight similar questions for pupils to consolidate. A prompt for pupils to create their own questions, as an extension. Plenary: A proof by contradiction of the theorem. Printable worksheets and answers included. Please do review if you buy, as any feedback is greatly appreciated!

Circle theorems lesson 4

Circle theorems lesson 4

A complete lesson on the theorem that opposite angles in a cyclic quadrilateral sum to 180 degrees. Assumes that pupils have already met the theorems that the angle at the centre is twice the angle at the circumference, the angle in a semicircle is 90, and angles in the same segment are equal. See my other resources for lessons on these theorems. Activities included: Starter: Some basics recap questions on the theorems already covered. Main: An animation to define a cyclic quadrilateral, followed by a quick question for pupils, where they decide whether or not diagrams contain cyclic quadrilaterals. An example where the angle at the centre theorem is used to find an opposite angle in a cyclic quadrilateral, followed by a set of three similar questions for pupils to do. They are then guided to observe that the opposite angles sum to 180 degrees. A quick proof using a very similar method to the one pupils have just used. A set of 8 examples that could be used as questions for pupils to try and discuss. These have a progression in difficulty, with the later ones incorporating other angle rules. I’ve also thrown in a few non-examples. A worksheet of similar questions for pupils to consolidate, followed by a second worksheet with a slightly different style of question, where pupils work out if given quadrilaterals are cyclic. A related extension task, where pupils try to decide if certain shapes are always, sometimes or never cyclic. Plenary: A slide showing all four theorems so far, and a chance for pupils to reflect on these and see how the angle at the centre theorem can be used to prove all of the rest. Printable worksheets and answers included. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

Circle theorems lesson 3

Circle theorems lesson 3

A complete lesson on the theorem that angles in the same segment are equal. I always teach the theorem that the angle at the centre is twice the angle at the circumference first (see my other resources for a lesson on that theorem), as it can be used to easily prove the same segment theorem. Activities included: Starter: Some basic questions on the theorems that the angle at the centre is twice the angle at the circumference, and that the angle in a semi-circle is 90 degrees, to check pupils remember them. Main: Slides to show what a chord, major segment and minor segment are, and to show what it means to say that two angles are in the same segment. This is followed up by instructions for pupils to construct the usual diagram for this theorem, to further consolidate their understanding of the terminology and get them to investigate what happens to the angle. A ‘no words’ proof of the theorem, using the theorem that the angle at the centre is twice the angle at the circumference. Missing angle examples of the theorem, that could be used as questions for pupils to try. These include more interesting variations that incorporate other angle rules. A set of similar questions with a progression in difficulty, for pupils to consolidate. Two extension questions. Plenary: A final set of six diagrams, where pupils have to decide if two angles match, either because of the theorem learnt in the lesson or because of another angle rule. Printable worksheets and answers included. Please do review if you buy as any feedback is greatly appreciated!
