Where was the free kick taken from? - Photos, football and algebraic fractions

Inspired by a Numberphile video where they use still images to calculate the position of a footballer taking a free kick (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffvojZONF_A) Resource is aimed at GCSE groups (higher) and will need at least an hour. Students are given four photographs and instructions that allow them to calculate where each player was standing when they took the free kick by measuring distances on the photographs and computing cross-ratios. They then have to solve a simple algebraic fraction equation to work out the unknown distance. Included: presentation to help explain the tasks, worksheet with photographs and an additional sheet that scaffolds the process if needed, set of exemplar answers. Students can draw any straight line they like from the ball to the goal so they will have different distances in their cross ratio but should end up with the same final answers. Potentially leads to discussion opportunities about how the cross-ratio changes with the players position and even an introduction to limits as you consider what happens if the player is very close to or very far away from the penalty area. *Presentation edited to include extension tasks incorporating using trig to find the kick angle and problem solving to work out the location of a different player and flight path of a pass followed by a shot **Answers updated to include challenge 1 and 2

Please rate and review! Time saving resource for busy teachers! You should be able to teach a lesson with hardly any preparation (mainly printing and maybe some cutting!). Students will need to know how to round to significant figures and decimal places in order to access this lesson fully. Fully differentiated objectives: Blue: Use Pythagoras’ theorem to find the length of the hypotenuse in a right-angled triangle. Gold: Use Pythagoras’ theorem to find length of a short side in a right-angled triangle Use Pythagoras’ theorem to find the length of a line segment, given the coordinates of the end-points. Red: Use Pythagoras’ theorem to find lengths and areas of compound shapes This resource includes: • A PowerPoint • A differentiated Work booklet that includes self-assessment sections • 2 sets of dominos on rounding to decimal places and significant figures to use as a starter activity (if you need a more comprehensive set of dominos click here) • Answers The PowerPoint includes the following format (watch the preview video here): • Objective and levels • A starter • A “how to teaching portion” with animated examples • And Afl mini whiteboard quiz • Plenary (with answers) Recommendations: Laminate the dominos for use again The powerpoint and booklet are currently set up for GCSE maths grades, however you can edit the grades to reflect KS3 or your own schools assessment criteria. In the word booklet if you change any grade (e.g the blue section) it should automatically change the rest of that colour into the same grade. This will take up a whole lesson at least.

Pythagoras and Trigonometry and how to spot the difference!

I created this resources as my foundation group were struggling on knowing when to use either pythagoras or trigonometry. These were both skills they had learnt and could do but couldn’t quite understand when to use which one. This resource helped them understand which method for which scenario. please review :)

Introduction to Pythagorus (Investigation !)

These resources will be all you need to introduce pythagorus to a new group. Based on investigating the informattion for themselves, with key hooks to keeps students engaged. Great way to introduce the topic and for the pupils to understand fully why and how it works! Please Review, Thanks :)

Pythagoras' theorem test x2

These resources are a sample from a collection of short tests on the application of Pythagoras’ theorem. All the tests are quite short (3/4 questions, so 5-10mins max). I created them so that I was able to test my classes more regularly on topics at different points through the year - each test is similar enough so that classes hopefully improve at the “standard” questions but there is also some variety in the later questions in each test and a progression in difficulty as you go through the tests. In the full set of 18 tests there are 5 tests designed to be done with a calculator, 13 tests to be done without a calculator. The questions include: 1.Finding the longest/shorter side of a right-angled triangle 2.Determining whether a triangle is right-angled 3.Finding the distance between 2 points 4.Using Pythagoras’ theorem in isosceles triangles, rectangles, squares etc 5.Using Pythagoras’ theorem in 3D 6.Using Pythagoras’ theorem where side lengths are given as surds All tests come with fully-worked solutions which makes them easy to mark. This means that the tests could also be used as a revision resource for students. The full set of 18 tests is available here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/pythagoras-theorem-test-x18-11922960

Triangle area activity

A challenging activity on the theme of triangle area, suitable for year 11 revision. The initial questions require a knowledge of basic triangle area, Pythagoras’ theorem, SOHCAHTOA, the sine rule and 1/2absinC so a good, challenging revision task. The questions have been designed with a ‘minimally diferent’ element, to draw pupils attention to how subtle changes can have significant implications for selecting methods. There are some follow-up questions, that could be used to shift the focus of the activity. I’d love to hear anyone’s suggestions of further questions.

Pythagoras

This presentation explains in simple terms how to go about solving Pythagoras Theorem. Great lesson starter to introduce the topic or a helpful revision guide.

Multiple choice 20 - The distance between a pair of coordinates

Another little activity for AFL, revision, starter or a plenary. Works well with mini whiteboards and adaptable to voting systems. Can easily be printed off for class use. Aimed at KS3/4 and KS5 multiple choice activity solving problems involving finding the length of a line segment between coordinates. Hope you find it useful Please leave feedback

Pythagoras Treasure Map

I did this as a review at the end of a week teaching Pythagoras to a middle set year 10. I got them to split into teams and set it as a challenge to see who could get the correct list of destinations first. the questions are coloured with hypotenuse, then shorter side and finally worded questions. (no 3D). The map has extra symbols on so they can’t just use the triangle letter! As it was a review the activity took around 20 - 30 minutes and kept the students engaged. Answers are (not in any order) House, town, maze,Fish and chips,pond,cave, mountain, fair, dragon, cafe, forest, park and beach

Fortnite Bearings Fun

If you haven’t heard your students talking about Fortnite then where have you been? 45 million people play the shooter game Fortnite and I can’t stop the kids I teach from talking about it. This activity incorporates lots of different concepts: Ratios/Scales Bearings Speed, distance, time Pythagoras Area problem solving Edit and remove questions as you want. If you print at 100% the scale will be 1.5cm to 250m Otherwise you might have to give it a measure if you print to fit Also: The locations from the bearings are locations required for one of the challenges this season to get them even more engaged. Half my class have taken the work home to finish so they can gain in game rewards
