Area of a circle

Area of a circle

A complete lesson (or maybe two) on area of a circle. Assumes that pupils have already used pi to calculate circumference. Includes a range of activities, from counting squares to estimate area, through to using the area rule, using the rule in reverse and a few problems in context. Printable worksheets and answers included. Please review it if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

Dr Evil's Circle Problems

Dr Evil's Circle Problems

Written by Dr Evil, Edexcel’s Chief Examiner, this document was put together to help teachers make circle problems much harder for students. It contains useful advice about increasing the level of difficulty and catching students out wherever possible. If this document ever makes it into the hands of students the game is up!

What could the question be? (exam style questions)

What could the question be? (exam style questions)

A selection of powerpoints with exam questions with the question part removed to generate discussion and to aid revision of several mathematical topics. The actual exam question is provided on the next slide, but don’t feel that you have to show that to students as the idea is to see what they can come up with and carry that through. These questions would appear on the foundation GCSE Maths paper but would also be very suitable for younger year groups. Question topics include: labeling circles grouped data ( - this could also be used with a higher tier group covering cumulative frequency and histograms) Points on an axis - could be used for midpoint or length of line using Pythagoras’ theorem or even the equation of the line that passes through both points Types of number and several more There are 14 seperate topics in total

Maths Revision Sat KS2 Year6

Maths Revision Sat KS2 Year6

This Maths revision resource is designed to prepare children in the run up to the National Curriculum SATs tests before school assessments. The packs includes 5 days worth of 25 questions that target key areas of the Mathematics curriculum. Each day is designed to last ten minutes and comprises both arithmetic and reasoning problems. Equally, it would be useful for booster sessions when there is limited time in the run up to the national tests.

Circle Theorems Revision Exercise #11

Circle Theorems Revision Exercise #11

Recap activity #11 with the Circle Theorems on one page. (Prompted by original pile-up ideas from others on Pythagoras, Trigonometry - and Circle Theorems.) This puzzle is the last in a series of eleven consolidation exercises/angle chases on the topic of Circle Theorems. All of the Circle Theorems are present with “two radii and a chord make an isosceles triangle” and “a radius that is perpendicular to a chord divides the chord into two equal parts” in there too.

Geometry Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Maths Shape Measure

Geometry Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Maths Shape Measure

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Geometry’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Compound Area Reasoning Tasks

Compound Area Reasoning Tasks

Several tasks all based on an Edexcel GCSE question about compound area, including circles and a functional element. These tasks are designed to improve students’ mathematical reasoning and were created as part of the Mathematical Reasoning at GCSE project run by Cambridge Maths Hub. The tasks vary in difficulty, and include work on proportional reasoning, unit conversions (including units of area), error intervals, area of circles and non-circle compound area. They are not intended to be used all together; just pick and choose one or two suitable ones for your class. Thanks to the awesome Mr Barton for the Venn diagram templates. For a similar set of tasks which focus on algebraic expressions for area and perimeter, take a look at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/algebraic-area-reasoning-tasks-11838759 All feedback very welcome. I’d be really interested to hear which tasks you chose and how you used them!

Geometry Rocks! - Book on properties of 2D and 3D shapes

Geometry Rocks! - Book on properties of 2D and 3D shapes

‘Geometry Rocks’ is a book that I created to help secondary school pupils understand the different properties of 2D and 3D shapes. This book is designed for pupils of all abilities with the content ranging from fundamental properties of basic polygons up to the higher level content involving surface areas and volumes. I hope it proves beneficial.
