Extended Murder Mystery - Area of a Sector
A whole lesson that includes a starter, then some basic questions which lead on to 3 linked murder mysteries which pupils have to solve to discover:
who murdered whom; where were they murdered and what was the weapon. The plenary is a metacognition sheet that allows pupils to assess the skills they used in the lesson.
I used this with a year 9 class as a means to introduce area of a sector.
It will take at least one lesson, maybe two for slightly lower ability.
Used during a lesson observation which was graded both excellent for teaching and excellent for pupil outcomes.
