In my recent post Indices in Depth I explained that TES recently recorded a couple of my CPD sessions.

A new video has been published this week: Angles in Parallel Lines. You can download the slides here which include links in the notes at the bottom of each slide.

I hope you enjoy it! I'm looking forward to filming more of these in February.

Wow, thanks so much for the video and download. That's a comprehensive take on the topic if ever I saw one. I'n now seeing lines everywhere I look :)

ReplyDeleteThis is excellent. I genuinely believe that well thought out CPDs on topics could greatly improve the approach to understanding in maths being taught across the country. I constantly strive to find best approaches to new material and I will be using lots of this when teach angles 'in' parallel lines. I look forward to watching future CPD's. Many thanks!!!

ReplyDeleteOMG!! I was listening to the podcast yesterday - so much easier to understand when you do a video!!!

ReplyDeleteI have been teaching for a few years but thought I would listen to your podcast fantastic. This week have been teaching this (your way) to middle set year 8. The understanding was phenomenal. Usually you hear students saying I cant see the 'Z'. Not this week they were just saying the reason was alternate angle. Thank you so much. I was a bit nervous to teach it differently but so pleased I did.

Thank you so much! I'm really pleased you found it helpful.

DeleteHi Jo,

ReplyDeleteAbsolutely loved this and I've already asked my Head of Dept if I can lead on a Faculty Teaching & Learning CPD on this in a couple of weeks' time!

Would you please reply with the link for the Examples & Non-Examples of a Transversal, because when I have tried the link in the Powerpoint for that slide, it's taken me to a 404 Error Page.

Many thanks!

Thanks! I wrote these slides years ago so if that link is now broken then I'm afraid I won't be able to get a replacement. It was something I found via google images and it doesn't appear to be there any more. But you could just copy the picture from my slides.

DeleteHi, just watched this and learnt a few things today, like why co-interior angles come from consecutive-interior angles. Co-Interior angles is something I do promote a lot: I mention the U-shaped aspect of these interior angles and they have a specific use with the topic of bearings. I like how your animation showed how the alternate angles rotate, but take this rotation a little further to an N-shape and you could have all three concepts in an acronym: corresponding (F), co-interior (U) and alternate (N). Angles in parallel lines are FUN!

ReplyDeleteHi :) I am a trainee teacher and today I had a lesson on this topic with year 9... It did not go well, obviously bringing the names out too soon blew their minds! I may go back to basics first and then try the definitions chanting next week, although it will be a bit wierd when done remotely!
