Mathematics Mastery

Summary

This unit deals with measures used in mathematics, including scales, 2D representations, perimeter, area and volume. At the start of the unit, estimation is considered in context, with sensible degrees of accuracy discussed and the use of approximations to estimate the value of a calculation explored. Making sensible estimates and choosing the right units is discussed next. With elegant graphics to support the learning, students discover scale drawings and bearings, using reasoning to solve contextualised problems. Plans and elevations are met, focusing on the skills needed to draw and interpret 2D representations of 3D objects, including the use of isometric drawings. The unit then moves on to shapes; finding the perimeter, area and volume of shapes such as triangles, trapezium, parallelogram, cuboids, prisms and composites of these shapes. Standard formulae for area and volume are introduced and used, and these skills are applied through graded questions with reasoning and problem-solving tasks involving perimeter, area and volume.

Lots of questions to gauge pupils understanding, great real life links with the slides, short pieces of info on each slide.
