#### Investigating pi - Practical activities - 2 lessons

Designed to help your students understand where pi comes from! These two lessons guide students through finding the circumference and areas of circles using commonly-found items. From this, students calculate the value of pi themselves. This provides deeper understanding of the area and circumferences equations which are routinely used. These resources have been particularly useful in the past with some weaker groups who have struggled with the abstract concept of pi and helps to promote their independent learning.

#### Analogue and Digital Time Spans

A set of challenging tasks for more able upper primary pupils and KS3. These tasks assess the children’s ability to read analogue time, and to convert analogue to digital time. They are then scaffolded in the use of a method by which they can calculate time spans using digital time readings. Eight tasks are arranged in increasing order of difficulty using 12 and 24 hour time. The tasks are designed to provide a grounding from which pupils can go on to explore the effectiveness of various mental strategies to quickly and accurately calculate more complex time spans. The worksheets can be filled in by hand or electronically on a PC/tablet. The clock hands can be re-directed by clicking on them twice and pulling the arrow-tip around to tailor your own tasks.

#### Sectors, Segments and Arc Length Worksheets - With Answers
