## KS3 Maths Angles in a triangle animation

Powerpoint suitable for KS2 and KS3 Maths: Shape, space and Measure / Geometry - Triangle properties. This animation shows how angles in a triangle lie and a straight line and therefore add up to 180. I usually get students to test this out with their own card triangles and use this animations as a summary.

I like this as it shows clearly how and why the angles in a triangle add up to 180 degrees. You could get the pupils to do this with paper too. Nice to start off a lesson on angles showing this and starting a discussion.

#### Tunnelworks: KS3 Maths - Pythagoras and right angle triangles

This lesson about Pythagoras and right angle triangles challenges students to solve a realistic engineering problem to help design, build or operate the Thames Tideway Tunnel. You can dig deeper with follow-up ideas for more able students.
Students explore right-angled triangles and Pythagoras’ Theorem using simplified engineering drawings. They use their knowledge to calculate missing dimensions from two drawings, before calculating the gradients of some sections.
The teachers notes, and worksheets PDFs can be downloaded from TES. The accompanying presentations are easy to find in the Secondary area at: www.tunnelworks.co.uk.

#### Calculate missing angles in a triangle - KS3/GCSE

Get learners in pairs or groups to discuss how we calculate a missing angle in a triangle. Then ask learners how we would use or knowledge to solve the problems involving algebra. When learners say form an equation remind them how to solve using the balance method. For this particular task we completed them on posters for a display to show the challenges we had worked on.

#### Plans and Elevations - Famous Buildings

A PowerPoint of images showing the plans and elevations of famous buildings (one of the slides is the science block in my school but you could swap this). Ideal for KS3 and GCSE classes.
I found the images using google satellite maps and print screened once I had zoomed in.
It was a really nice starter activity to get the students engaged. Hopefully they now know the difference between a plan and an elevation.
This task could be extended by getting students to draw elevations of the given building, even scale drawings

#### 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.
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.
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! :-)

#### KS3 Circles-Rescue the princess-adventure game

Adventure game in which students answer KS3 circle questions in order to rescue a princess. Teacher notes and answers are provided. There are 5 sections, each with 2 topics. They have 4 attempts at each topic, if they get all 4 wrong, the game ends and they will have to start again. The 5 sections are: parts of a circle, circumference, area, reverse questions: given circumference, find diameter and radius; given area, find radius and diameter. Go to my profile page to see the GCSE version including arc length and sector area and check out my other games.
