Planes of Symmetry in 3D Shapes

Planes of Symmetry in 3D Shapes

Students learn how to identify the planes of symmetry in 3D shapes. Learning progresses from sketching the planes of symmetry for a cube and cuboid to constructing scale drawings of prisms on isometric paper. The start of the lesson recaps the properties of 3D shapes for a composite solid. The plenary challenges students to consider shapes with an infinite number of planes of symmetry. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to identify the planes of symmetry in a cube. Most students should be able to identify the planes of symmetry in a solid shape using isometric paper. Some students should be able to identify and sketch the planes of symmetry for any solid. Mr Mathematics’ annual members have instant access to all lessons across Key Stage 3 and 4. Termly GCSE assessments are also available to monitor student’s progress.

How to perform rotations about a Centre

How to perform rotations about a Centre

Students learn how to rotate an object on a grid using a centre, direction and amount of turn. As learning progresses the centre is given as a coordinate pair and on a Cartesian axes. The start of the lesson is used to recap the difference between rotational and reflective symmetry. The plenary challenges students to describe two different and equivalent transformations. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to perform a rotation where the centre touches the object. Most students should be able to perform a rotation on a grid. Some students should be able to perform and describe a rotation on a Cartesian grid.

Geometry: Circle Theorems 2 - Rules 5 -8 (+ lots of resources)

Geometry: Circle Theorems 2 - Rules 5 -8 (+ lots of resources)

This is a whole lesson looking at the second 4 rules of circle theorems. 27 slides. It has lots of little activities throughout for the pupils to engage with the different rules. It comes with a handout, which put the rules into 8. I know they could be put into less or more, however, I have found that 8 works the best. There is also a completed handout also attached with the rules filled in. The lesson has a starter, learning objectives, a lot of excellent teaching slides, MWB activites, a worksheet with ANSWERS, and plenary. NOTE: Feel free to visit my shop where you will find more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.

Wassily Kandinsky: Art & Maths

Wassily Kandinsky: Art & Maths

Learning and re-caping Maths and Art elements through the artwork of Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944). Using Kandinsky’s abstract paintings as the starting point we progress through elements of maths and art revision. Specifically covered, 2D shapes, fractions, measuring circles, symmetry, as well as, artist profiling and the colour wheel including primary, secondary and complimentary colours. Visually enticing revision sheets include, symmetry, fractions, 2D shapes and angles.

Types of Solids

Types of Solids

There are approximately four lessons of work here which include the knowledge of Prisms, Pyramids and Spheres. I tend to get the students to copy the examples into their books. Then when they start the worksheet they have something to look back at for guidance.

Geometry: Surface Area 2 - Surface Area of Pyramids (+ resources)

Geometry: Surface Area 2 - Surface Area of Pyramids (+ resources)

This is a whole lesson looking at surface areas of pyramids. (15 slides). This is part of four lesson series that I teach on surface area, which is one of the new focuses for the new 9-1 GCSE. The lesson includes: + Starter challenging pupils to think about what questions could be asking + Learning objectives and Key Words + MWB activity to judge (remind) pupils of Pythagoras + 2 excellent and well animated examples (they are very thorough !!) + TIP (to avoid a common mistake) + WORKSHEET + ANSWERS + basic plenary (the worksheet is time consuming, so normally not enough time to do a longer plenary) + ALSO 2 handouts with all the formula's NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thank you.

Maths Year 4 KS2: To identify parallel and perpendicular lines

Maths Year 4 KS2: To identify parallel and perpendicular lines

Smart Notebook screens and activities to support children identify parallel and perpendicular lines (also included horizontal and vertical lines). There are shapes that children can annotate to show the different types of lines. "Next steps" starter activity included so that children can revisit/ embed their understanding.

Resource bundle for  Properties of Shapes - Year 3

Resource bundle for Properties of Shapes - Year 3

Year 3 lesson resource bundle for teaching and consolidating properties of 2D and 3D shapes.Bundle include lesson plans for 6 lessons,Power Points for starters,main lessons and plenaries and differentiated worksheets for independent practice. Lessons link with the year 3 mathematics programmes of study relating to drawing 2D shapes and recognising properties of 2D and 3D shapes as well as making 3D shapes using modelling materials.Lessons focus on developing reasoning in year 3 by using knowledge of properties of shapes to solve word problems and prove true/false statements.The resource can be used to teach a sequence of lessons to start off the geometry unit in year 3 as it recaps on previous learning and develop thinking through small steps.
