There are 6 exercise sheets and an examination-style assessment test, each with answers included in this unit.
Our resources apply the principles of Mastery throughout, creating a rich and deep learning experience. Find out more about Mastery with our quick guide.
This geometry unit fully focuses on developing mastery of this important area of mathematics. At the start of the unit, students consider similar shapes and the impact of similarity on the ratio of side lengths. With carefully chosen illustrations to illuminate the learning, the unit continues on to introduce the trigonometric ratios and develop these into the more formal methods of use when finding missing sides or angles in right angle triangles. The trigonometric ratios for special triangles are devised and used. The unit concludes by considering how to set up and solve trigonometry problems in context.

The worksheets are well written and the students seemed comfortable with the format. Some interesting questions too, which fit well with the new GCSE course.
