MEASUREMENT and RIGHT ANGLED TRIANGLES
this topic builds on the skills learnt in previous years - metric conversions, perimeters, areas and volumes. The emphasis is on solving problems in a real life context that require more than one step.
It is assessed by a 3 credit internal.
RIGHT - ANGLED TRIANGLES
We will use the properties of similar triangles, Pythagoras' theorem and Trigonometry to calculate unknown side and angles in 2-D and 3-D shapes.
The emphasis will be on solving problems in a real life context.
The topic is assessed by an internal worth 3 credits that involves practical measuring.
A scientific or graphics calculator and a quad book are essential.
