Mathematics Mastery

Summary

This final geometry unit of the series explores the relationship between ratios of similar shapes and develops more complex trigonometry techniques.  In the first three lessons, properties of similar shapes are investigated and links between the ratio of lengths, areas and volumes are made and used to solve contextualised problems.  For the second part of the unit, the focus switches to trigonometry, developing on from earlier work in Unit 14.  Lesson 4 introduces students to the Sine Rule and its use applied to problems including those involving bearings.  The Cosine Rule and the rule for the area of a triangle are introduced in the next lesson and in the final lesson, problems and exam-style questions are used to enable students to apply their learning to problem solving and reasoning tasks.

What people say...

Practice questions are set in context where appropriate so students see the relevance of the mathematics they are learning.

Heather Davis. Professional Development Lead, NCETM

Starters are designed to encourage the independent retrieval of pre-requisite knowledge, requiring students to think rather than just be told, again.
