This is a powerpoint explaining some of the applications of trigonometry to answer that age old question 'But Miss, why would we need to know this?&'\n\nContent taken from http://www.mathworksheetscenter.com/mathtips/trigonometry.html
This Problem helps to connect real life applications with the Maths taught in the classroom.
Using Braille Patterns(in a 2x3 rectangle) students are encouraged to explore why this sized rectangle was chosen and the many patterns that can be found with in it and similar rectangles.
Ideal for groups of four to explore and report back their findings.
A great problem that encourages discussion and a great deal of Trial and Error.
Students should be encouraged to use manipulatives (or diagrams) to help solve the problem.
Teachers try and stay out of giving too many hints or suggestions, but also encourage students to persevere.
I encourage you to spend time analysing the problem, making a list of possible solving strategies, before setting the students to work
Hint: Work backwards
I have used this successfully with students aged 7 through 14, in both whole class and small groups
A self-contained game to be played in pairs.
Use to revise reading coordinates on a grid. Best played once coordinates have already been introduced, as a consolidating activity.
Differentiated versions of the game within this pack, including use of the first quadrant only, as well as all four quadrants. You will also find instructions on how to play the game within your pack. Suitable for Years 4 and 5 (on one quadrant) and Year 6 and KS3 (on all four quadrants).
There are about 17 (practical and fun) lesson activities, tasks or worksheets to cover the following 2014 objectives:
Recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn.
Identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn; identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle.
This is one of the children's favourite activities to help understand angles. Ideas for children of all abilities to have fun learning about angles.

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! :-)
Investigation and problem solving activity in which students identify all the different pentominoes, then fit them into shapes (50 different shapes, inc. 4 rectangles, 4 squares, 17 animals, 13 pictures (inc. car, train, plane, rocket, boat), 12 other shapes (inc. cross, yin and yang, heart)).
