Angles and ratio: TES Maths Resource of the Week

To see all of the work I do for TES Maths, including Resource of the Week, Inspect the Spec, Pedagogy Place, Maths Newsletters and Topic Collections, please visit the TES Maths Blog here

What is it?
Ever since ratio was given an increased value in the current GCSE specification, it has been sneaking in to all sorts of topics and questions. Gone are the days when all students needed to know how to do was simplify a ratio or share a few sweets out. Now ratio pops up in algebra, probability, fractions and percentages to name but a few; you name the topic and sure enough ratio will be there.

How can it be used?
I have been on the lookout for resources to help my students gain valuable practice in combining different topics with ratio. That is where this wonderful resource comes in handy. It is a set of questions that requires both knowledge of angle facts and ratio to solve them and there are some combinations that I would never have thought of myself, such as basic angle facts, triangle properties, and circle theorems.

Thanks for sharing!
