Pythagoras Questions

Pythagoras Questions

This resource consists of a power point lesson that can be used to teach or revise the use of Pythagoras’s Theorem and 11 worksheets for consolidation or revision. The theorem is used first in right-angled triangles then in isosceles triangles and for finding the length of the diagonals of rectangles. The worksheets provide a framework for calculating the distance between two points given as co-ordinates, there are grids to help students visualise the method. Other topics covered include areas and perimeters and also the properties of triangles and a triangular prism so that Pythagoras can be applied to solving more complicated problems.

Percentages using Multipliers - Increasing and Decreasing

Percentages using Multipliers - Increasing and Decreasing

These four structured worksheets show how to use multipliers to decrease or increase an amount by a percentage. The aim is to show students how to use this efficient method as an alternative to calculating the change then adding or subtracting it. This will make them especially useful for teaching this tricky topic to foundation level GCSE students in the new specification. The answers are included. The questions ask students to use different methods to calculate the answers and check they are the same. There is a page of word problems to apply the method to real life situations. This topic usually skips by so quickly at school that many students miss it and are left perplexed when they are expected to understand how to do reverse percentage calculations. These pages are ideal for independent learning or revision and follow on from the 'Calculating Percentages using Multipliers' resource.
