This is the last in a 7 lesson series on learning different area rules (extension being circles - teach as a separate series). Comes with additional resources !! This is an excellent lesson built around a rich task with its basis as scale drawing, but with lots of different aspects, including percentages and pie charts. This is an excellent rich task to develop problem-solving skills and their functional maths, which is particularly important with the new curriculum changes.
I have found over the years, that teaching these lessons over more lessons than less pays dividends!! That it is often a subject skirted over quickly and then has to be retaught year after year. It is often a subject that even at KS4, pupils struggle over. To address this each of the lessons is very thorough on the different rules, with activities, handmade worksheets that are differentiated with trickier examples with answers, exam questions, problem-solving starters and plenaries.
