Tangrams are great for Maths, but it can be a little tricky to draw out the square. Simpler to give students a photocopy of the tangram and a pair of scissors, but where's the skill in that? This sheet gives practice using a straight edge and a pencil, and filling in the lines gives a better feel for the construction of the tangram than simply chopping up a pre-drawn template. A short explanation and a couple of example animal tangram images are included to fire the imagination.

#### Geometry: Tessellations 2 - Letters & Art / Design (M.C. Escher) + resources

This is the second of two lessons that I teach on tessellations. This is a topic done poorly in exams mainly because students do NOT know what it is ... I have created two lessons designed for KS3 to address that. I don't know why teachers skip it, there are so many cross-curricular links especially with Art and above all... it is a fun lesson/topic. Pupils love it! There is a lot of material with this lesson (22 slides) and teaches pupils how to create tiles that tessellate from squares and again using squares to create shapes that look like real life animals etc.. that tessellate like M.C. Escher. NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more free and premium resources! As always please RATE and FEEDBACK (comments good or bad) thank you!

#### A Thanksgiving Inquiry Based Math Project Measure, Fractions & Data

Inquiry based math offers collaborative learning and hands on inquiry requiring the children to solve problems, think critically and apply their knowledge of measure and scale, area, fractions, ratio tables and word problems with the four operations as they explore the journey made by the Pilgrims on board the Mayflower ship. Text is included with data that the children will have to identify in order to solve the problems. They will plan the journey across the Atlantic with measure and scale, they will be required to calculate the amount of food and water rations. Research will be necessary as the children have to know parts of the ship, countries , continents and oceans. Once the Pilgrims reach America, the students will design the village and plan the amount of food necessary to cater for the first Thanksgiving Feast. It culminates in a class presentation of the facts found and reasoning as to their plan and design of their team’s route , their designed village and their ideas for the feast. Comparing and contrasting each group’s work, helps with critical thinking too and communication skills. Wholly differentiated, ( Task B cards are less challenging) you can use it as a summative assessment tool of the skills and standards included. It can be created as a booklet or in a binder., with a front cover included, being used as a goal setting pre assessment for the children. Mix and match the pages to suit your students’ needs. I prefer to have the children work on the pages individually before they compare their designs and work together as a small group to collaboratively create the map, their group plan of the village and planning the Thanksgiving Feast. This inquiry based math packet is easy to print and go, perfect for Thanksgiving or all year round. I designed it for my IB PYP 5th grade class. It can be used 4th – 6th grade too. You will find the following skills and standards ideally suited for the IB PYP Phase 4 and CCSS Math for 4th and 5th grade: •Number sense and base ten operations •Fractions: adding, subtracting and simplifying •Measure: using measuring tools , area and scale •Geometry: identifying polygons and angles •Data analysis Make math fun, engaging an authentic! You can find many more inquiry based learning tools in my store and on my blog. Enjoy! Susan Powers www.PYPteachingtools.com

#### Geometry: Angle Rules 3 - Angles in Triangles (+ worksheet)

This is the third in a 7 lesson series on different basic angle rules, which is designed for KS3, but I do use some of the lessons for weaker groups at KS4. UPDATED, 23 SLIDES!! This lesson not only looks at more straight forward rules but more complicated examples that involve triangles. This is a very typical exam question and this lesson is very thorough. It comes with a starter, learning objectives, keywords, activities, excellent teaching slides and examples, a worksheet with answers and plenary. I have found over the years, that teaching these lessons over more lessons than less pays dividends!! That it is often a subject skirted over quickly and then has to be re-taught year after year. It is often a subject that even at KS4, pupils struggle over. To address this each of the lessons is very thorough on the different rules, with activities, handmade worksheets that are differentiated with trickier examples with answers, exam questions, starters and plenaries. I have spent a long time over the years developing lessons to help pupils progress in this area. You can buy this as a BUNDLE, which I highly recommend as a series/sequence of lessons. NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more free and premium resources! As always please RATE and FEEDBACK (comments good or bad) thank you!

#### Online Triangle Solver

TrianCal - Open in Google Chrome. (Triangles online calculator developed by Jesus S.) I propose this free online calculator triangles without advertising to help students with geometry, does not perform the duties, because their calculations formulas are not displayed. It is designed in a didactic way to check and view the realized duties. TrianCal is online calculator triangles that works with any combination of values including sides, heights, angles, the area, perimeter or type of any triangle, calculating it with the minimum possible value (typically three). Other functions: - Draw the triangle (s) with GeoGebra. - Set the range of values in each element. - Chande name of vertex - The type of angle. - The type of triangle by its angles and sides. - Selection of language (English or Spanish). - Select the angle type [degrees (°), radians, degrees, minutes and seconds (° ' &quot;) or degrees and minutes (° ')]. - Number of decimal places shown in the results (0-15). - You can use the arrow keys and the Tab key to navigate through the settings. - Drop-down menu to select the values comfortably. - Create a link (URL) to the current triangle. - An icon mail to communicate with the author. NOTE: You must use the Google Chrome browser to display correctly TrianCal. Examples of possible combinations: - The area, perimeter and other data (side, height or angle), if the outside equilateral triangle would not need the third data. - 2 angles and other data (if the value of the other data is not put aside the value of &quot;a&quot; at the time of drawing the triangle is 10).
