Angles

There are 366 different Starters of The Day, many to choose from. You will find below some starters on the topic of Angles. A lesson starter does not have to be on the same topic as the main part of the lesson or the topic of the previous lesson. It is often very useful to revise or explore other concepts by using a starter based on a totally different area of Mathematics.

Main Page

Angles Starters:

Air Traffic Control

Work out which aircraft are in danger of colliding from their positions and direction of travel. An exercise in understanding bearings.

Angle Estimates

Estimate the sizes of each of the angles then add your estimates together.

Pie Chart

An exercise in estimating what the sectors of a pie chart represent.

Sectors

Work out which sectors fit together to make complete circles. Knowledge of the sum of the angles at a point will help find more than one correct solution to this puzzle.

Square Angles

Find a trapezium, a triangle and a quadrilateral where all of the angles are square numbers.
