Area and circumference of a circle

Area and circumference of a circle

A complete lesson on a mixture of area and circumference of circles. Designed to come after pupils have used area and circumference rules forwards (eg to find area given radius) and backwards (eg to find radius given area). Activities are fun and challenging, and include: A starter to check pupils are able to use the rules for area and circumference. A set of 4 ‘mazes’ (inspired by TES user alutwyche’s superb spider puzzles) with a progression in difficulty, where pupils use the rules forwards and backwards. A 3-in-a-row game for pupils to compete against each other, practicing the basic rules. Printable worksheets and answers included. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

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!

Perimeter Pirate Sheet

Perimeter Pirate Sheet

This is a worksheet in which the children have a set of questions based around perimeter. They must use the image of the pirate and the measurements given to answer the questions. These worksheet has been previously used with a Year 4 class, although it could easily be adapted to suit other ages and abilities. The questions in the sheet require the children to use their knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication, converting units of measurements, knowledge and properties of shape, problem solving and reasoning.

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.
