Circle Theorems Investigation

Circle Theorems Investigation

So many times I have seen CIRCLE THEOREMS taught exclusively in a very descriptive, note-taking way. While examples and demonstrations are important to this topic, I wanted a nice EASY, interesting way to get students ENGAGED with what they are doing. I developed this investigation worksheet so students could spend a lesson reviewing KEY WORDS, drawing lines and shapes, MEASURING angles and coming up with their own CONNECTIONS. It's a really great way to get students understanding what Circle Theorems ARE before you open up Geogebra! The worksheet has clear step-by-step instructions telling students exactly what to do for each circle theorem. The first circle they are given is highly scaffolded, and each theorem has additional circles with less scaffolding so pupils can test out their theories and seek for special cases. The extra worksheet also provides practise and extension so that your class can attempt to apply the theorems they have been investigating! Have fun and please leave a review!

Shape, parallel lines, perpendicular lines, prove it assessment statements KS 2

Shape, parallel lines, perpendicular lines, prove it assessment statements KS 2

Hi all, Here is a set of questions that assess children's knowledge of shape with particular focus on parallel and perpendicular lines. They're designed for the children to work in pairs where they read the statement then have to 'Prove it' by writing and/or drawing their explanations in the shape provided. They must use mathematical language! Once they've done this they have to place their answer under the correct headings of 'Always, Sometimes or Never' (Included) that are placed around the room. At the end of the lesson I ask the children to look at all of the answers and discuss whether they agree or not - this usually promotes some healthy whole class discussion. Have fun! Emlo

Tangram Creation Helper Sheet

Tangram Creation Helper Sheet

Tangrams are great for Maths, but it can be a little tricky to draw out the square. Simpler to give students a photocopy of the tangram and a pair of scissors, but where's the skill in that? This sheet gives practice using a straight edge and a pencil, and filling in the lines gives a better feel for the construction of the tangram than simply chopping up a pre-drawn template. A short explanation and a couple of example animal tangram images are included to fire the imagination.
