Tes Maths ROTW: Angles On A Straight Line Lesson

Ensure your learners master angles on a straight line with this comprehensive lesson, from tree1568

What is it?

While some will argue that there is no such a thing as a mastery lesson, this comprehensive pack gets pretty close.

The premise is simple. Pupils complete a series of problems that cover the basics of angles on a straight line, while tackling common misconceptions head on. Jam-packed with questions that gradually increase in difficulty, this easy-to-follow presentation and accompanying worksheets allow students to approach an often tricky topic in a digestible manner.

How can it be used?

Though this pack can form the basis of a single lesson, I’d suggest using it as part of a long-term approach to mathematics.

Why not use the presentation to introduce pupils to the topic, before allowing them to put their knowledge to the test with the worksheets? Thanks to the variety of questions available, students will have a sound understanding of angles on a straight line in no time!
