Mathematicians are not the people who find Maths easy; they are the people who enjoy how mystifying, puzzling and hard it is. Are you a mathematician?

Comment recorded on the 17 June 'Starter of the Day' page by Mr Hall, Light Hall School, Solihull:

"Dear Transum,

I love you website I use it every maths lesson I have with every year group! I don't know were I would turn to with out you!"

Comment recorded on the 19 October 'Starter of the Day' page by E Pollard, Huddersfield:

"I used this with my bottom set in year 9. To engage them I used their name and favorite football team (or pop group) instead of the school name. For homework, I asked each student to find a definition for the key words they had been given (once they had fun trying to guess the answer) and they presented their findings to the rest of the class the following day. They felt really special because the key words came from their own personal information."

Go Maths

Learning and understanding Mathematics, at every level, requires learner engagement. Mathematics is not a spectator sport. Sometimes traditional teaching fails to actively involve students. One way to address the problem is through the use of interactive activities and this web site provides many of those. The Go Maths page is an alphabetical list of free activities designed for students in Secondary/High school.

Level 1 - Name and find the size of the angles in regular polygons.

Level 2 - Find the size of the angles marked with letters in simple diagrams.

Level 3 - A mixture of problems related to the angles in polygons.

Reminders

All Polygons

The sum of the exterior angles of any polygon is 360°.

The sum of the interior angles of an n-sided polygon is 180(n − 2)°.

Regular Polygons

Each exterior angle of an n-sided regular polygon is 360° ÷ n

Each interior angle of an n-sided regular polygon is 180° − 360° ÷ n

Interior and exterior angles

Interactive animation showing why exterior angles add up to 360°
