Circle theorems (minimum 3 lessons)
JaggersMathsJaggersMaths

Circle theorems (minimum 3 lessons)

(1)
This is (at least) 3 lessons worth of work on circle theorems. Lesson 1 - > Starter - Label the parts of the circle. Worksheet included and interactively move the answers to the right places on the board. > Comparison to angles in parallel lines. I like to introduce them as similar to angles in parallel lines in that they have to know what to look for and the statements if they are asked for reasons. Also that it can be simple or very complex. > A sheet for students to stick into their books that has all of the circle theorems on for them to refer to. This includes a few different representations of each circle theorem to show how different they can look. > A look at all of the theorems. Step by step on the board showing each of the circle theorems. You could have students doing this in their books before giving them the theorems. Also includes links to geogebra software for each theorem. > A worksheet on basic circle theorem questions + extension questions to get students used to identifying the correct theorem and using it. Full answers provided on the smartboard file. > Plenary - a look at spotting isosceles triangles in circle theorems. Lesson 2 - > Morgan's problem (this was given to me by one of my students!) Answer included. > 2 exam questions examples. Focus on showing clear working and writing on the diagram and giving correct reasons. > Key exam language. State vs Work out vs Give reasons > Exam questions. There are 2 booklets (I printed these as A5 booklets that students could stick into books) of exam questions. One is "easier" problems then there is a "more challenging" booklet if you are teaching grade 8/9 students. There is a mark scheme and worked solutions to the first booklet. The second booklet has the final answer in the back (so students can check their answer but will still need to show full working) and worked solutions also included. NB: I actually did this lesson over a double period and some of them still had to take work home to finish it off so this is alot of work! Lesson 3 - > Spot the mistake. Answers included. This covers some of the more common mistakes students make. > A chance for the students to try and prove the circle theorems for themselves - what do they know about the sizes of any of the angles? I printed the 5 sheets of the circle theorems with the additional lines drawn on on a double sided sheet of A4 and gave them 10 minutes to label anything they can. > Proof of circle theorems. Step by step each of the circle theorem proofs with full explanations for students to follow through. I printed the blank circle theorem proof sheets for them to stick in their book but you could save on printing and get them to copy it themselves. > Plenary - FMSP Problem - two circles. Full solution provided. ENJOY!

Pythagorean proof (Pythagoras of Samos)
JaggersMathsJaggersMaths

Pythagorean proof (Pythagoras of Samos)

(1)
This was an observation lesson I did with my top set year 9s on Pythagorean proof. It was a really good lesson for getting them engaged with the topic and using Pythagoras and surds together. I really enjoyed it although it was a brave lesson to do (not a lot of students doing questions) but they were very engaged (you could hear a pin drop when I was talking about Pythagoras' life!) and they worked collaboratively to discover the proof for themselves. Includes: > What maths can you see in this photo (Egyptian pyramid) and class discussion. > Quick question on Pythagoras by show of hands > Story telling on Pythagoras' life. Under the boxes are prompts of what to discuss. A quick google on Pythagoras will enlighten you! > Pythagorean proof - students discover through area problem working in pairs. Hint cards and support in place also. > Pythagoras' theorem and surds - 2 different questions discussing why they are important. > Pythagorean cup video.

Drawing pie charts without a calculator - the mastery way

(0)
Complete lesson on drawing pie charts without a calculator. It teaches students to write each frequency as a fraction of the total and find that fraction of 360 in order to find the angle required. Includes: > Fractions of circles starter with extension and solutions and sheet to print if required > Full example with sheet for students to follow along with. Example has full working out step by step if you just click through. > 3 pie chart questions for students to complete of increasing difficultly (begins with table draw for them and total given and end with a question where students have to draw extra columns for themselves and aren't given the total). I have found that drawing 3 pie charts has always been more than enough for one lesson for my classes. > Solutions to the tables on the worksheets given. > A mini review sheet for students to complete. I get everyone in the class to complete one of these in about 7 minutes then I mark them and give students feedback. > Fun pie charts plenary.
