Clumsy Clive On Pythagoras and Trigonometry

Clumsy Clive On Pythagoras and Trigonometry

Clive has two homeworks to tackle but is making mistakes once again. The first homework involves right-angled triangles, the second a question in 3D and non-right-angled triangles. Spot the mistakes, correct them and then explain what Clive needs to do in the future.

Teach in 20 3D Trigonometry

Teach in 20 3D Trigonometry

This started as a teaching prompt to prepare my year 10 set 2 for a end of year mock and it was based on topics we hadn't studied yet. I found I could teach them the content and go through an example and then get them try a question in about 20 minutes - that is 3 new topics in a 60 minute lesson. I printed the PowerPoints as handouts and got the students to work on them. You can of course use them as you see fit. Feedback would be much appreciated! Enjoy :)

Line Segments - Edexcel Higher

Line Segments - Edexcel Higher

Hi, This lesson is based around the basic understanding of line segments and how to calculate the equation of a line. I have consistently used AfL and mini plenaries to assist students through this topic. There is a good range of differentiation and scaffolding which will cater towards middle to high ability students. Questions and answers are displayed on the PowerPoint to allow your lesson to run smoothly. The lesson consists of a start (with solutions) and will take 2 lessons to teach. Please read the above before purchasing. The learning objectives covered are: - I can find the coordinate of the midpoint of a line segment - Apply the my knowledge to find the gradient and length of a line segment - Find the equation of lines parallel or perpendicular to a given line Enjoy!

GCSE Revision and Catchphrase activities

GCSE Revision and Catchphrase activities

This bundle includes my best 10 resources. Included is my Foundation Starter question powerpoint slides (including over 250 questions!) testing a wide variety of topics for pupils between Grade 1 to Grade 5 styled for the new 1-9 GCSE AQA exam. There are revision resources (tried and tested) on my June 2017 class covering the topics of Algebra, Bisectors and Loci, and Transformations. Finally, there are six specific topics that include powerpoint presentations and questions. Each contains at least one superb catchphrase activity - these allow pupils to answer questions and reveal parts of a picture. These really do keep pupils engaged through to the end of the lesson! Fantastic bundle saving you over 25% of the combined price. Thanks for looking! Mr Cullen

Proof of Pythagoras Theorem - Perigal's Dissection

Proof of Pythagoras Theorem - Perigal's Dissection

Very basic animated PowerPoint which demonstrates the relationship between side lengths in a right angled triangle. This geometric proof of Pythagoras is called Perigal's dissection. There are many similar things on YouTube, but I find the PowerPoint is easier to navigate back and forth if needed

Pythagoras Dominoes

Pythagoras Dominoes

Very simple matching task to find the missing side in right angled triangles. This could make a nice starter or plenary task depending on where you students are at with Pythagoras. It combines the skills of finding the longest or a shorter side, something which students seem to struggle with. The task doesn't have a start finish and creates a continuous loop

Then a slide of 8 questions for pupils to practice. Two further examples of finding the diagonal of a rectangle and 3 questions (extension) asking pupils which rectangle has the longest diagonal. Slides 9 - 10. Two examples that the teacher can use to demonstrate finding the shorter side. Then a CATCHPHRASE ACTIVITY with 12 questions. It is animated so that pupils can give answers and a picture is revealed behind. Answer: Bunjee Jumper Slides 12 - 13. Two examples that the teacher can use to demonstrate finding the longer and shorter sides. Then a CATCHPHRASE ACTIVITY with 12 questions. It is animated so that pupils can give answers and a picture is revealed behind.

Perimeter, Area and Volume

Perimeter, Area and Volume

An excellent resource, fully differentiated, and quite demanding at the top end. It uses the 'Must, Should, Could' principle, which I pioneered 20 years ago.

Maths Famous Mathematicians KS3 Wordsearch Crossword Anagram Alphabet Keyword Starter Cover Homework

Maths Famous Mathematicians KS3 Wordsearch Crossword Anagram Alphabet Keyword Starter Cover Homework

6 starter activities on the theme of the Famous Mathematicians. Starters are 1 x wordsearch, 1 x crossword, 1 x anagram sheet and 3 x alphabet brainstormers. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. 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. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
