Angles in Quadrilaterals lesson

Powerpoint lesson for finding missing angles with all resources included. Resources include a work booklet, assessment for learning activities, starter and plenary. Skills covered include – finding angles in quadrilaterals and special quadrilaterals, finding multiple angles using angle facts including straight lines and at a point and forming and solving equations using knowledge of angle facts.

Time saving resource for busy teachers! You should be able to teach a lesson with hardly any preparation (mainly printing and maybe some cutting!). Fully differentiated objectives:
Blue: Find a missing angle in quadrilaterals and special quadrilaterals
Gold: Solve harder problems using properties of angles
Red: Form and solve equations using knowledge of angle facts

This resource includes:
• A PowerPoint
•Answers on the powerpoint
• A differentiated Work booklet that includes self-assessment sections and help boxes
• A problem solving activity where students have to find 4 angles that add up to 360 (2 different versions)
•A card sort starter for properties of special quadrilaterals.

The PowerPoint includes everything you need to teach right away. The lessons use the following format:
• Objective and levels
• A “how to teaching portion” with animated examples
• Assessment for learning activities
• Answers to all the booklet questions
• Plenary (with answers)

The powerpoint and booklet are currently set up for GCSE maths grades, however you can edit the grades to reflect KS3 or your own schools assessment criteria. In the word booklet if you change any grade (e.g the blue section) it should automatically change the rest of that colour into the same grade.

This will take up a whole lesson.

This lesson would be appropriate to use as part of the Pearson Edexcel Foundation textbook unit 6, find more resources for that here.

This is the second lesson in the series and follows on from this lesson which you can find here.
