Year 7 – Probability
- An ‘improving learning in maths’ lesson idea.
Year 8 – Simultaneous Equations
- A QR code activity here.
Year 9 – Percentages; Multiples, factors, primes; HCF and LCM.
Year 10 – Circles, semicircles, sectors and arcs; Surface area and volumes of solids.
- A nice question to introduce sectors of circles: Which pizza slice is bigger? A 9inch pizza cut in 10 slices or 7.5inch pizza cut in 8 slices?
- A really nice way to get the students to discover the formula for surface area of a sphere – it does involve bringing oranges!
- Dan Meyer’s Meatballs problem (from Three Act Maths) brings volumes of cylinder and spheres together nicely.
