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 unit on mensuration begins with an introduction to vectors, their key properties and uses. With an emphasis on developing mastery, students learn how to carry out simple arithmetic processes with vectors and understand the geometric interpretations of these. Circle facts from Unit 15 are built on, developing skills for calculations involving arcs and sectors of circles, and dealing with composite circle shapes and solving problems in relation to these. The unit moves on to look at 3D shapes; specially finding the surface area and volume of 3D shapes. Formulae are developed and presented and students’ skills in applying these formulae to find missing values are supported. Contextualised problems including the use of reasoning skills are developed.

What people say...
Students need to think and learn to reason so probing questions are a feature of every task in every lesson.

As I am non-specialist teaching the new specification of AQA GCSE Chemistry for the first time this year, these resources have been invaluable to me. The presentations are thorough and well illustrated. The teacher guide and power point presentation leads you through the topics logically.
