Maths in a triangle (Code: C1258)
Triangles are simple shapes, but their properties are used in many practical applications, for example in engineering and sciences. Understanding the fundamental properties of triangles is foundational to developing learners' understanding of trigonometry and geometry.
This interactive course is designed to enable participants to better support their learners in understanding triangle properties, Pythagoras, basic trigonometry and their practical applications providing a solid foundation for GCSE and vocational learners.
Who is this for?
This course is for teachers and other practitioners delivering GCSE maths in the Further Education and Training sector. Teachers of Functional Skills and vocational courses would also find much of this course useful.
To provide you with a range of strategies, approaches, and activities to support learners to develop their knowledge and understanding of triangles and trigonometry.
On this course, you will:
- investigate learning activities that can support learners, including the types and properties of triangles, Pythagoras, and basic triangle trigonometry
- consider rich, collaborative tasks to help expose and discuss misconceptions and develop deeper thinking
- reflect upon how you might use these activities and approaches in your own teaching.
