Angle Bisectors: Survival Maths

Angle Bisectors: Survival Maths

A real-life context for angle bisectors. Angle bisectors can be used with a clock face to determine compass directions. A alternative to just constructing angles bisectors for the sake of them.

Constructing Triangles

Constructing Triangles

Attached are two files. 1. An animated powerpoint to talk through the steps of constructing ASA, SAS and SSS triangles. 2. A PDF file containing the same instructions as posters. I have successfully used the posters for revision or as a learning resource for self-help. I laminated the 3 A4 sheets and leave several copies around the classroom so that students can look at them for help if needed.

Constructions problem solving worksheet

Constructions problem solving worksheet

I created and used this worksheet with top set year 8. They had previously studied construction of perpendicular bisectors and angle bisectors. I designed this worksheet to promote problem solving skills and discussion with their peers.

Grains of rice in a classroom

Grains of rice in a classroom

I have created a PPT to use over a couple of lessons to discover "how many grains of rice" can you fit in a room. As a scaffold, you could have the nets pre-drawn for some groups and also grids printed for space to put piles of 10 in an area to allow for quicker counting and less option to lose count!

Bearings

Bearings

Great lesson for drawing out bearings and map scales - I have used this ion numerous schools - print out a Google map on A4 for your school and the surrounding area, then follow the instructions - 3 different differentiated routes to find the exact location. Feel free to swap my name for yours on the PP and sheet!
