As you may or may not know, it is a snow day today. I hope you guys all stay safe and warm. But of course find the time to do some maths.

G7 Please can you please have a go at this online transformation Game.

This gets progressively harder. Your goal is to get all 18 transformations correct with now errors. In other words a perfect score of 1800!

We will still have the investigation on Wednesday, as it does not need any prior knowledge, that’s why it is an investigation!

Greetings. Today we were going to look at the three rules of the area of a triangle and the sine and cosine rule. Please read through these websites below and take a look at the youtube links too.

Area of any triangle :

PLEASE try the questions on the pages too!

Our first unit will be Sets and Logic. This unit will take us on a journey through a system of techniques to solve problems where we have combinations which overlap and we need to find solutions that allow for these overlaps.

Our goal will be demonstrate how this form of mathematics can be used in the real world to solve problems and to see if there are patterns in these methods that can be used for far bigger problems.

Our statement of Enquiry is: Rational Approaches can be used to solve problems mathematically

Our key concept is Logic.

We will also be reviewing last years material, to get evey ones brains back into maths. This year we will be using the textbook New Signpost Mathematics 8. This is available on the resources page.
