Planes of Symmetry in 3D Shapes

Planes of Symmetry in 3D Shapes

Students learn how to identify the planes of symmetry in 3D shapes. Learning progresses from sketching the planes of symmetry for a cube and cuboid to constructing scale drawings of prisms on isometric paper. The start of the lesson recaps the properties of 3D shapes for a composite solid. The plenary challenges students to consider shapes with an infinite number of planes of symmetry. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to identify the planes of symmetry in a cube. Most students should be able to identify the planes of symmetry in a solid shape using isometric paper. Some students should be able to identify and sketch the planes of symmetry for any solid. 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.

Surface area of a combination of solids

Surface area of a combination of solids

Success Criteria: All students will be able to state and apply the formulae of surface area of a combination of solids using a diagram. Most students will be able to state and apply the surface area of a combination of solids formulae and find the surface area in one step word problems. Few students will be able to state and apply the area of surface area of a combination of solids formulae and find the surface area in multi-step word problems.

Volume and Surface Area - Basics and Extension Questions

Volume and Surface Area - Basics and Extension Questions

This will introduce the topics of 3D volume and surface area, and also provide some challenging extension questions. A set of four worksheets on - Basic Skills (rounding, 2D perimeter and area, 3D volume and surface area) - Problems (real life problems involving volume and surface area of cuboids, cylinders, cones and spheres) - Units (converting between e.g. square metres and square centimetres) - Extensions to the Problems (revisiting the problems with converting units and more in-depth calculations) All provided with solutions. Also includes a Power Point for some revision

Types of Solids

Types of Solids

There are approximately four lessons of work here which include the knowledge of Prisms, Pyramids and Spheres. I tend to get the students to copy the examples into their books. Then when they start the worksheet they have something to look back at for guidance.

Geometry: Surface Area 2 - Surface Area of Pyramids (+ resources)

Geometry: Surface Area 2 - Surface Area of Pyramids (+ resources)

This is a whole lesson looking at surface areas of pyramids. (15 slides). This is part of four lesson series that I teach on surface area, which is one of the new focuses for the new 9-1 GCSE. The lesson includes: + Starter challenging pupils to think about what questions could be asking + Learning objectives and Key Words + MWB activity to judge (remind) pupils of Pythagoras + 2 excellent and well animated examples (they are very thorough !!) + TIP (to avoid a common mistake) + WORKSHEET + ANSWERS + basic plenary (the worksheet is time consuming, so normally not enough time to do a longer plenary) + ALSO 2 handouts with all the formula's NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thank you.

Geometry: Pythagoras Bundle (3 Lessons) - perfect for GCSE's and KS3

Geometry: Pythagoras Bundle (3 Lessons) - perfect for GCSE's and KS3

An outstanding sequence of lessons on Pythagoras looking at all the different elements and possible questions. In particular it has very strong teaching slides and should build very good understanding of the subject. Lesson 1: Introduction to Pythagoras (hypotenuse) Lesson 2: Pythagoras (shorter side & problem solving) Lesson 3: Pythagoras in 3D NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for many more excellent free and premium resources, and as always please rate and feedback, thank you.

Geometry: Pythagoras 3 - Pythagoras in 3 Dimensions (3D) + resources

Geometry: Pythagoras 3 - Pythagoras in 3 Dimensions (3D) + resources

This is the 3rd lesson on Pythagoras that follows on from gaining a solid understanding of Pythagoras in 2D in the previous lessons to move onto problems in 3D. Lesson 1: Introduction to Pythagoras (hypotenuse) Lesson 2: Pythagoras (shorter side & problem solving) Lesson 3: Pythagoras in 3D The lessons include an challenging starter, learning objectives, key words, outstanding teaching slides and an excellent short, but time consuming worksheet with answers, plus a Pythagoras self assessment sheet to finish off the sequence of lessons and to gauge understanding of the different elements.

An Inquiry Based Maths Project Design A Haunted House: Data Analysis, Measure, Geometry

An Inquiry Based Maths Project Design A Haunted House: Data Analysis, Measure, Geometry

Inquiry based math offers collaborative learning and hands on inquiry requiring the children to solve problems, think critically and apply their knowledge of data analysis ( data is provided) ,volume, fractions, area, geometry, place value and operations., as they plan and build a haunted house using 3d shapes. Research will be necessary as the children have to know the country and culture of where their haunted house will be situated .( in theme parks around the world) This week long , authentic learning activity is great to use any time of the year but particularly fun around Halloween! USA & UK spelling included. I designed this as a part of our complete IB PYP unit of inquiry of How We Express Ourselves, looking into multi-cultural awareness around the world. It culminates in a class presentation of the facts found and reasoning as to their plan and design of their team’s Haunted House. Comparing and contrasting each group’s work, helps with critical thinking too and communication skills. Wholly differentiated, ( Task A cards are more 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 and class attainment goals. This inquiry based math packet is easy to print and go, perfect for Halloween 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: identifying and simplifying Measure: using measuring tools , area and volume ( surface area) Geometry: identifying and classifying polygons and polyhedrons Place value: identifying standard form to the millions, rounding, ordering Data analysis – graphing ,analysing, ordering data 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
