Getting to grips with angles

Getting to grips with angles, Learning angles with multiple resources.

Course Description

I remember as a child sitting in a GCSE maths class and the teacher was explaining something to us. I had no idea what she was talking about and, unfortunately, she chose me to answer her question.

I sat and looked at her blankly before giving her an answer with only the slightest glimmer of hope that it might be right.

No chance. She explained it again using the exact same words. She asked me again for the answer, but I was none the wiser. She might as well have been talking in a foreign language. I had no clue.

With a roll of her eyes, she explained it for the third time in the exact the same way. I still had no idea what she was on about. But, now with a bright red face and a fear that the tears I could feel welling up inside would escape down my cheeks, she gave up. I felt like a complete fool in front of the whole class.

That night I sat with my dad who used completely different wording and I got it. It was simple. He wasn’t a teacher; he just had the patience to explain it to me in a way that I understood. That has stayed with me for a long, long time.

Many of the explanations that I have used here are based on the experiences I have encountered over the past 20+ years with my own children, through my degree and the other students like you that I have worked with as a tutor.

In the first section we will look at how we learn. Then from here we will dive into the basic angles facts, types of triangles, and how to calculate the sum of the interior angles in a shape, and the interior and exterior angles in a shape.

Hopefully by the end of the course any questions you had will have been answered.

After each video you will also find 3 resources to help you practice what you have just learned in the video.
