Full clear visuals animations for each construction.
Touchscreen lesson: TRIGGERED
Clicker lesson: CLICKER
Assumed prior knowledge:
- Use of a compass and straight edge
- Measuring an angle
We are learning about: Constructing triangles
We are learning to: Use a compass, ruler and protractor to construct triangles.
- Developing learners will be able to construct SSS triangles.
- Secure learners will be able to construct SAS and ASA triangles.
- Excelling learners will be able to construct other polygons given angles and sides.
Starter: Gets straight ‘stuck in’ with an equilateral triangle.
Main: Worked through examples of SSS, SAS and ASA triangles with visual prompts and steps, followed by 8 practice questions displayed on board after each type of triangle.
Plenary/Extension: Constructing triangles with a scale, worded constructions, sectors and other polygons.
