Geometry KS3/GCSE Foundation Maths Resources

Geometry KS3/GCSE Foundation Maths Resources

This is a set of excellent resources which cover geometry in KS3 maths/GCSE foundation. The 2-D shapes formulae sheet contains all of the area formulae for 2-D shapes as well as 3 diagrams illustrating the parts of a circle. The 2-D shapes revision sheet includes details of all the properties of 2-D shapes and contains a section on polygons. Also included in the resource is a revision aid on how to work out the circumference and area of a circle with worked examples and questions for students to attempt. There is also some worded questions on circumference and area which go beyond simply just asking them to calculate the area and circumference of a circle. Instead it gets them to draw on their literacy skills to decode the question and problem-solving abilities to attempt a style of question they may not have encountered before or be familiar with.

Geometry Circle Angles Noughts and Crosses PowerPoint Games

Geometry Circle Angles Noughts and Crosses PowerPoint Games

There are four games in this PowerPoint. They are ideal for playing at the end of each class (allow 10 minutes) as revision for this topic. These games involve circle angle concepts (radius/tangent, isosceles triangles, angle in the centre, angles on the same arc, angle in semi-circle, cyclic quadrilateral etc). It is an adaptation of a class game that is played on the whiteboard and works in the same way that Noughts and Crosses works, the object being to get 3 noughts or 3 crosses in a row but the students have to get answers correct in order to gain the nought or cross. Students are very engaged when playing this. It is a great opportunity also for them to give a reason for their answer, reinforcing the names of types of angles, so it is great way to make opportunities for discussion. Divide the class in half (or play one group against another). Random individuals on each side of the class put their hand up and take turns to answer the questions. They never have two turns in a row ie never two Os or two Xs in a row. If an answer is correct then you click on the question and the answer appears - click on the answer for a O, click again for X etc. It's very easy to play but make sure you have a little play with it before involving your class.You may need to develop your own rules depending on the class. Play it once and you'll know what is meant by this comment.This powerpoint opens up straight away in slideshow mode. There are four games here. Every second slide is a set of answers which you should probably print out before you play but you don't really have to if you have the inclination to work out the answers on the spot. There is also a pdf with answers (easy to print out).There are other Noughts and Crosses games in my shop (Geometry, Algebra and Number ones) - more are on the way.Have fun!!

Sonia Delaunay artist research & analysis worksheet

Sonia Delaunay artist research & analysis worksheet

A two page resource (can be photocopied back to back and laminated for repeated use) on the artist and designer Sonia Delaunay.Can be used as a cover lesson during a relevant project (colour, pattern, abstraction, design, shapes, movement, Orphism, Cubism, Op Art...), an extension activity, or as a whole class task. Students are asked to read the information about the artist then answer questions, then show their visual understanding through the creation of a three dimensional coloured-paper collage of their own.The lesson requires minimal materials (coloured paper, glue, scissors, and either compasses or cylindrical objects of different sizes to draw around - e.g. glue sticks, paper cups, sellotapes) and can be carried out in a non-specialist classroom.A fun and different way to look at an important artist and designer from the 20th century! Resulting artwork makes a great display too.
