Discover Pythagoras

Discover Pythagoras

Worksheet leading pupils to discover and prove the Pythagoras Theorem. Pupils need to be aware of vectors as these are used to describe the right-angled triangles - though the worksheet does explain vector notation. There are three pages to the worksheet. Pages 1 and 2 lead pupils through specific right-angled triangles; page 3 helps them generalise their results into the Pythagoras Theorem.

The MFM1P 6000, Grade 9 Applied Culminating Activity - Simply Amazing!

The MFM1P 6000, Grade 9 Applied Culminating Activity - Simply Amazing!

A fresh approach to a culminating activity for grade 9 applied math, far from the routine pencil and paper! The "MFM1P 6000" is an interactive computer game which gives students an opportunity to show what they have learned, using models and strategies used in current MFM1P classes, while providing endless opportunity for practice and timely remedial help! Students receive instant automated feedback worded in growth mindset language. This program also provides teachers an extensive summary of students strengths and areas of difficulty. Download Tip ◾Your computer will flag the program as a virus. It is just doing it's job as it should for any unknown executable file! Be assured it is safe. Click "more info" and then "Run Anyway" etc. I know how tough it can be to motivate students to review material from the start of the semester in preparation for EQAO and the final exam. Set them loose in a computer lab for a few days with the MFM1P 6000 and watch the magic happen! Please visit calfordmath.ca/MFM1P6000 for a complete layout of the culminating activity including a complete curriculum connection list, and an up-to-date list of bug fixes and changes. This activity generates every single problem randomly so that every student has a different set of problems and can try as many attempts as necessary to master each topic. The topics span the MFM1P curriculum, and are arranged in difficulty from $100 to $500 score value. To earn 100%, a student must earn $6000 or more, and complete at least two problems from each category. I had tremendous engagement and much EQAO success with my grade 9 applied class last year when I piloted this activity. I have also added and tweaked many things! The game is a Windows Desktop Application designed for a PC. It is not web based, so you will need to copy the game file to a public handout folder where students can open it. I think you and your students will LOVE this! I would love to hear how it goes with your class, and I welcome any suggestions you have! Thanks for checking this out, ~CalfordMath

8th Grade Math Stations Bundle

8th Grade Math Stations Bundle

These middle school math stations are just what you need to help your students develop a deep understanding of mathematics. There are at least four stations in each set. The focus of these stations is for students to discover and apply mathematical principles. The students will delve into the mathematics and gain a strong foundation. These stations are set to take one to two class periods. These are great for group work but also work well as homework, assessments or individual work. Included in all stations is a recording sheet and answer sheet. What makes these different than other math stations available? Make Sense of Math stations are created with the intent that students will conceptually understand the mathematical concepts. These math stations are not simply "busy work" worksheets. Students will write, model, justify, create, explain and practice the mathematics.

Pythagorean Theorem Math Stations

Pythagorean Theorem Math Stations

These Pythagorean Theorem math stations are not your average Pythagorean Theorem worksheets. Take your students to a new level of understanding with these stations. Students will learn two proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem. Students will problem solve their way through two Pythagorean Theorem puzzles. One puzzle also combines their knowledge of area of triangles. Students will apply the Pythagorean Theorem to real-life applications. Students will find distances on the coordinate plane as well as practice their use of radicals on Pythagorean Theorem problems. Students will develop a deep understanding of this content after completing these math stations. This product includes the following math stations. • Pythagorean Theorem Proof #1 • Pythagorean Theorem Proof #2 • Pythagorean Puzzle #1 • Pythagorean Puzzle #2 • Pythagorean Theorem Application • Distances with Pythagorean Theorem • Pythagorean Theorem with Radicals Each station will take about 15 – 20 minutes to complete. Stations can easily be combined, or used to differentiate your teaching. Pythagorean Theorem Proof #1 guides them through a proof, and Pythagorean Theorem Proof #2 is more open-ended, this is a great way to differentiate your teaching. A recording sheet and answer sheet are included. These would also be great to use as homework, group work or assessments

Christmas Trigonome-tree & some Mince Pie-thagoras

Christmas Trigonome-tree & some Mince Pie-thagoras

A festive trigonometry worksheet with over 40 calculations required, testing sine rule (including ambiguous case), cosine rule, and trig area of a triangle, plus a little Pythagoras. Find the missing sides and angles to find the height of the tree and size of the angle (or angel??) at the top of the tree. Created for my Year 11s, who wanted more practice at working out which trig rule to apply. A3 and A4 version of the puzzle available, plus answers. Some sides and angles may have different answers, depending on the route taken from bottom to top. I've provided two sets of answers where this can occur, and I believe that any differences disappear in subsequent calculations.
