Sine-osaurs - problem solving with the Sine Rule, Cosine Rule and 1/2absinC

Sine-osaurs - problem solving with the Sine Rule, Cosine Rule and 1/2absinC

This took me ages to make! There are 3 sine-osaurs of increasing difficulty - pupils need to work out the area of each using the Sine Rule, Cosine Rule and 1/2absinC. This worked brilliantly well with my higher tier GCSE class. There is a Powerpoint with a class example to start then the worksheet in both PDF and Microsoft Publisher format. The worksheet is scaffolded, with a table under each picture helping students to structure their answer.

Treegonometry - problem solving with trigonometry, Pythagoras and trees!

Treegonometry - problem solving with trigonometry, Pythagoras and trees!

My GCSE higher tier class loved this so it was well worth all the effort put into making it. Really applicable to the new GCSE specification, you need to work out the area of six trees of increasing difficulty, made from triangles, rectangles, parallelograms and trapezia. Included is the worksheet in PDF and also Microsoft Publisher format, and a class example on Microsoft Powerpoint.

Fun revision activities for GCSE Maths

Fun revision activities for GCSE Maths

Two sets of 12 cards for students to cut up, solve and then place cards in ascending/descending order of solutions. A multiple choice activity - where each answer gives a letter. The full set of letters can be rearranged to spell the name of a band, and finally a cross number all covering multiple topics Just a slightly different way to get students to look at revision. A range of grades to allow access for all from beginning.

Fun revision activity for GCSE maths 2

12 cards for students to cut up, solve and then place cards in descending order of solutions. Just a slightly different way to get students to look at revision. A range of grades to allow access for all from beginning. When I use this with my class, I get students to work in pairs. I also give them paper to stick the cards on once order is complete and get them to write their working around the outside. I have found students to be much more engaged than if they were just given a page of questions. The 12 included topics are: proportion, simplifying surds, trigonometry, cosine rule, substitution, LCM, percentage profit, sequences, quadratic formula, circle theorems, mean of grouped data and reverse percentages.
