KS3. G6. Construction and 3D Shapes

In this power point I have included all basic topics in KS3 (grade 6) about construction and 3D shapes that you can use to work with your students for approximately five lessons, each lesson includes at least one PDF worksheet to practice different activities and a ppt format file that you can edit. The learning objectives are: - Draw triangles and quadrilateral using a ruler and protractor - Use and construct a scale drawing. - Know various 3D shapes and their names. - Count vertices, faces and ages of a 3D Shape. - Use isometric paper to draw 3D shapes. - Find the surface area using nets. While you´re exploring the lessons you will find signs of practices and examples you can link to those specific lessons.

Junior Geometry - Topics 1-10

Junior Geometry - Topics 1-10

Bringing together the 1st 10 of 20 Topics in the GetMathsFit Junior Geometry series. This is over 350 pages of worked exemplar, explanation, definition of meaning & concept, exercises and model solutions. The teaching is logical, sequential and thorough without the need to refer elsewhere. From an introduction to points, lines and angles students explore and learn further characteristics, physical skills and reasoning with plane figures, symmetry, parallel lines, Pythagoras, similarity, congruence and finally proofs and problem solving with angles and parallel lines. Use for in-class introductions, group work, plenaries and differentiation as well as a home self study, revision and reference resource.

Constructions (Topic 5): Instructions, exercises and solutions for basic geometric constructions.

Constructions (Topic 5): Instructions, exercises and solutions for basic geometric constructions.

Topic 5 of 20 in the GetMathsFit Junior Geometry series shows students how to construct key geometric diagrams of angles, lines and shapes. Using ruler, compass and set-square the techniques of bisecting angles, drawing perpendicular line bisectors, constructing equal angles and drawing the core angles of 15°, 30°, 45°, 90° & 120 are all illustrated in a sequential manner. Over 60 pages of demonstration, instruction, exercise an model answers provide a wealth of resources for the often neglected skills of construction in geometry. Useful for maths classes but also; art, design technology & science.

Christmas coordinates in the first quadrant

Christmas coordinates in the first quadrant

This is aimed at pupils in year 4 to use their coordinate plotting skills to help draw Christmas decorations. The smartboard presentation goes through how to write and how to plot coordinates by using fun activities such as locating the Christmas decorations, plotting baubles on the Christmas tree and drawing Rudolph's nose. The worksheets have 2 grids on each with the relevant coordinates, so that they can be connected together and reveal a Christmas decoration that Santa is looking for.

Angle Bisectors: Survival Maths

Angle Bisectors: Survival Maths

A real-life context for angle bisectors. Angle bisectors can be used with a clock face to determine compass directions. A alternative to just constructing angles bisectors for the sake of them.

Tangram Creation Helper Sheet

Tangram Creation Helper Sheet

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 (+ resources)

Geometry: Tessellations 2 - Letters & Art / Design (+ 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) NOTE: feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources, and as always please rate and feedback, thank you.

A Thanksgiving Inquiry Based Math Project Measure, Fractions & Data

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
