Year 10 Introduction to Positional Language in Maths

Year 10 are learning about positional language as part of their maths work. We are looking at operations such as half and quarter turns. The class members are also using positional language to show left and right directions.

Our recent lesson started with a short video to recap on our existing knowledge. Maths teacher Mr A gave the pupils some useful tips to remember how to identify left or right.

We then looked at what is meant by a clockwise and anticlockwise direction. Other positional language was introduced such as on top, and underneath..

Our individual table work was aimed at meeting the learning levels of each pupil. Some class members labelled cards with the correct description. An example is the ball is on top of the box.

Some of the higher level students worked on recognising and drawing quarter and half turns.
