Programme Of Study For Key Stage 3 Mathematics

These are the Transum resources related to the statement: "Pupils should be taught to draw and measure line segments and angles in geometric figures, including interpreting scale drawings"

Here are some specific activities, investigations or visual aids we have picked out. Click anywhere in the grey area to access the resource.

- Estimating Angles Estimate the size of the given acute angles in degrees.
- Measuring Angles Measure the size of the given angles to within two degrees of their actual value.
- Scale Drawings Measure line segments and angles in geometric figures, including interpreting scale drawings.

Click on a topic below for suggested lesson starters, resources and activities from Transum.

- Angles Pupils should understand that angles represent an amount of turning and be able to estimate the size of angle. When constructing models and drawing pupils should be able to measure and draw angles to the nearest degree and use appropriate language associated with angles. Pupils should know the angle sums of polygons and that of angles at a point and on a straight line. They will learn about angles made in circles by chords, radii and tangents and recognise the relationships between them. Pupils will work with angles using trigonometry, transformations and bearings. In exams pupils are often instructed that while non-exact answers should be given to three significant figures, angle answers should be given to one decimal place.
- Loci A locus (plural: loci) is a set of points whose location satisfies or is determined by one or more specified conditions. This topic links to Geometry and Shape and provides opportunity for accurate drawing and 'people maths' where pupils can position themselves in the classroom according to certain conditions.
