Angle fact flashcards (including circle theorems)

How often do your pupils calculate the answer to an angle fact question correctly, but then don’t get the mark for the ‘give a reason for your answer‘ question? Rather than ‘alternate angles are equal‘ they write any manner of things such as ‘it is a z shape and so the angles are the same‘. Since ‘z angles‘ is no...

The pupils have to measure all the angles in the drawings and then unleash their creative side by producing their own stickman drawings and measuring the angles.

Angles in 2D shapes

Checkout this worksheet for a nice investigation activity into angle properties of 2D shapes. A nice way of managing this one is to get pupils looking at different 2D shapes and then to share their findings with the class. You can have a whole lesson following where pupils share their angle property findings. For example “what did the people who...

How many times have you marked a GCSE paper which is a two-pointer where the question asks “find the size of angle x” and then “explain how you worked this out” to find that the pupil got the size of the angle correct but wrote an explanation that didn’t get the second mark? You kind of knew what they meant...
