Poster about calculating the area of triangles. The common error pupils make when finding the area of a triangle is that they forget to divide it by half and most of them use the slope sides of the triangle. They also forget to write the corresponding units. Print them out, laminate and put them on your Maths wall as a reminder. Hope you find it useful.

#### Plotting coordinates using up to four quadrants!

I have created this for a year 5 top set maths group. It is differentiated 3 ways, yellow being the less able, green able and pink more able.<br />
<br />
This links in very heavily with shape as I am teaching this following 3 weeks on shape, space and measure, so it will continue to embed their knowledge of quadrilaterals, types of triangles, angles and parallel and perpendicular lines.<br />
<br />
Hope this is useful! Have included photos of what it should look like once points have been plotted, hopefully I haven't made any silly mistakes! :-)
