CIRCLES - Vocabulary

CIRCLES - Vocabulary

This colourful powerpoint uses diagrams, animations and photographs to introduce more vocabulary needed for working with circles e.g. chord, arc, sector and segment whilst revising the words introduced in 'Circles- Introduction' ( radius, diameter, circumference, centre, circular, semicircle ). It is aimed at GCSE students and below, both at foundation and higher level. The later slides show the connections between circles and 3D shapes and extend vocabulary to sphere, hemisphere, cylinder, ellipse, cone and concentric circles. The slides have notes and suggestions accompanying them. The worksheets further reinforce the names of different parts of circles and one is designed to make students draw and measure their own diagrams and introduces ideas they will meet later when studying circle theorems. The video shows how to draw a hexagon by constructing it inside a circle using arcs. Some students find drawing circles very difficult and anything that motivates them to practise is useful. DfE references for GCSE 9-1 G9, G1, G4, G12 G9 'Identify and apply circle definitions and properties, including : centre, radius, chord, diameter, circumference, tangent, arc, sector and segment. See my other resource 'Circles - Introduction' which starts from the beginning with radius and diameter calculations, symmetry etc. For more resources like this please visit the SKILLSHEETS Shop

Triple Brackets

Triple Brackets

This collection of five worksheets ( complete with answers and working out ) covers the basics of multiplying out triple brackets then moves on to using the results in different situations. Students are eased into the topic with a little revision of the multiplying out that they will already have mastered then there is plenty of practise with progressively harder examples of multiplying out triple brackets including those with repeated factors. The extension sheets include proofs and finding the difference between two expressions ( a challenge in itself to remember to do x³ +3 x² + 3x + 1 )- ( x³ - 3x² + x - 1 ) carefully ! ). Geometric problems involving cube diagrams to illustrate the expansion of ( a + b )³ will provide useful extension work for the brightest GCSE students. Evaluate 1.1³ to show how powers of numbers can be found using expansions. The sheets could be used independently by your brightest y9s and above as they include instructions.

SIMILAR SHAPES : Length, Area, Volume Ratios

SIMILAR SHAPES : Length, Area, Volume Ratios

These 5 worksheets help to explain the effects of enlargement on the area and volume of a shape by looking at the length, area and volume ratios. This is an important topic that is often found difficult by many students. There are three basic worksheets introducing the idea then two pages of harder word problems for extension work. The first worksheet lets students calculate the surface area and volume of simple 1cm and 2cm cubes so they can create the ratios themselves and see how the area and volume ratios derive from the length ratio. Sheets 2 and 3 require students to use the relationships between the ratios to calculate missing areas and volumes. The two word problem sheets are similar to GCSE 9-1 exam questions.

Percentage Grids - 14 Worksheets

Percentage Grids - 14 Worksheets

This collection of 14 worksheets will help students to visualise the relationships between percentages, decimals and fractions better by shading diagrams to represent particular percentages. There is progression from the simple pages where percentages are introduced as fractions 'out of 100' to including the decimal equivalent and eventually relating fifths and fractions like 13/25 to percentages. The sheets are useful for short bursts of revision and reinforcement or extension. They are suitable for younger students meeting percentages for the first time and for older children who need reminders and visual reminders of why 1/4 = 25%. There is plenty of repetition so one sheet could be done in class and the paired version used for homework. DfE reference for GCSE 9-1 R9, R3, N2, N10 Please review this resource.

The Equation of a Circle x² + y² = r²

The Equation of a Circle x² + y² = r²

These ten worksheets guide students through the origin of the x² + y² = r² equation of a circle and use a variety of problems to reinforce their understanding of the equation and its uses. Tangents are also introduced as are the methods for finding points of intersection between lines and circles. There are plenty of reminders for solving simple quadratic equations like x² = 16 and also simultaneous equations where one equation is not linear. Written for the GCSE 9-1 specs but the material is also useful for A-level C2 students. Some of the sheets are similar so one can be done in class and the other used for reinforcement. There are problem sheets to extend the most students. As ever, the aim with SKILLSHEETS is to encourage learners to think about what they are doing and use diagrams to help them understand the topic.

Fraction Grids

Fraction Grids

This collection of 10 worksheets will help students to visualise fractions better by shading diagrams to represent particular fractions. There is progression from the simple pages where the boxes can be shaded by just counting 3 out of 4 boxes for example to those where the student has to see how to split a 4x5 grid into tenths in order to shade 7/10. There are worksheets that require fractions to be identified then cancelled or for a diagram to be interpreted in two different ways e.g. 10/15 = 2/3. One page considers the shaded AND unshaded parts of a grid that must always make up the whole. The last page illustrates how fractions can be compared in size by converting them to have a common denominator. DfE reference for GCSE 9-1 R3, N1 Please review this resource.
