Construction

Construction

Students investigate the construction of regular shapes. Constructions cover several shapes that reveal the Golden Ratio, including the regular pentagon and the golden rectangle. This is the third lesson in the “folder of Phi” series.

Constructing Loci and Equidistant Paths

Constructing Loci and Equidistant Paths

Students learn how to construct loci and equidistant paths using angle bisectors and construction techniques. There are several examples provided for the teacher to demonstrate as well as for the students to consolidate their learning. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to construct angle bisectors to identify an equidistant path between two lines. Most students should be able to perpendicular bisectors to identify an equidistant path between two points. Some students should be able to combine loci to identify regions or points within a given area. Mr Mathematics’ annual members have instant access to all lessons across Key Stage 3 and 4. Termly GCSE assessments are also available to monitor student’s progress.

Constructing Loci and Regions

Constructing Loci and Regions

Students learn how to construct the locus of a region by considering loci about a point and line. Learning is extended through the lesson by considering combinations of loci to identify certain regions. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to determine the locus around a point. Most students should be able to determine the locus about a line. Some students should be able to determine the locus about a point and line. Mr Mathematics’ annual members have instant access to all lessons across Key Stage 3 and 4.

Constructing Angle Bisectors

Constructing Angle Bisectors

Students learn how to construct angle bisectors using a pair of compasses and a straight edge. The lesson covers bisecting acute, obtuse and right angles to constructing perpendicular bisectors and reflex angles. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to construct an acute angle bisector. Most students should be able to bisect an acute, obtuse, right angle and straight line. Some students should be able to find the equidistant point in a polygon using angle bisectors. Mr Mathematics’ annual members have instant access to all lessons across Key Stage 3 and 4.

Constructions – Side, Angle, Side

Constructions – Side, Angle, Side

Constructions - Side, Angle, Side: Students learn how to construct triangles and other polygons using a ruler and protractor when an angle is given between two sides. As learning progresses they construct more complex shapes by considering their triangular components. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to construct a triangle using a pair of compasses, protractor and ruler. Most students should be able to construct a quadrilateral using a pair of compasses, protractor and ruler. Some students should be able to construct a polygon using a pair of compasses, protractor and ruler. Mr Mathematics’ annual members have instant access to all lessons across Key Stage 3 and 4.

Constructions – Side, Side, Side

Constructions – Side, Side, Side

Constructions - Side, Side, Side: Students learn how to construct triangles and other polygons using a pair of compasses and straight edge given the length of all the sides in the polygon. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to construct a triangle using a pair of compasses and straight edge. Most students should be able to construct a quadrilateral using a pair of compasses and straight edge. Some students should be able to construct compound circular and triangular shapes using a pair of compasses and straight edge.

The Big Maths Bundle

The Big Maths Bundle

This is a bundle collection of all my maths products to date, and I intend to add more over time. As this is a collection of all my maths products they range across strands and levels. You may only need some of what you find in this bundle, BUT...you get the bonus of having all that is included, some of which you may discover you can use. Included are worksheets and activities on; place value, fractions (junior primary), measurement (junior/middle primary), volume(junior/middle primary), shape (junior/middle primary), rotation (junior/middle primary) and scale factors (junior/middle primary). There are a total of 13 worksheets and activities, not including instruction sheets.

Geometry - Shape Worksheets

Geometry - Shape Worksheets

A collection of Worksheets working with Shape. Included areas of learning are; Rotation, Resizing (Enlargement and Scale Factors), recognising and describing 2D and 3D shapes.

Scale Factor Drawing

Scale Factor Drawing

A worksheet with opportunities to draw scale factor drawings of images. This worksheet has two images and the opportunity for students to draw their own design to factor up (or down). Students will learn the need to note carefully looking at what parts of the images are in each box and transfer them correctly into the correct boxes in the blank spaces. Teacher notes included.
