21 Sep 2017: What we did today...

Focus of Revision on POLYONS
  • Key ideas
    • Naming polygons (up to 10 sides)
    • Revisited the formula and how to derive them, as well as the relationship: 
      • Sum of interior angles of a polygon = (n - 2) x 180º (using a pentagon to help us visualise)
      • Sum of exterior angles of a polygon is always 360º (using an equilateral triangle and square to help us visualise)
      • Interior angle + Exterior angle = 180º 
        • When one increases, the other decreases
    • How to deal with polygons of unusual shapes
  • Discussion (1) with the following papers:
    • HIHS 2017 S2 Mid-Year Exam Paper 2 Q9
    • CGS 2015 S2 Mid-Year Exam Section B Q3
    • FMS 2015 S1 EOY Exam Paper 1 Q11
    • NYGHS 2015 S1 EOY Exam Paper 2 Q5
  • Discussion (2) with handout WJEC CBAC GCSE papers 
Solution presented by Corwin

  • Note that, when the context is defined here, that we know that n must be an integer (since it represents the number of sides of a polygon), we may leave out defining n is an integer. However, when without context, we should define n when constructing the inequality. (with inputs with Ethan)

Next week (T4W3), we will move into the following topics:
  • Mensuration (Perimeter, Area, Volume), which involves simple algebra
  • Linear Graphs, Sketching
  • Algebra
  • Construction will be kept to the last week of the revision

Do attempt the other schools' exam papers to prepare for the upcoming topics.
