# Geometry Problem Solving

Overall rating 4 out of 54.8 (5 ratings)

Last updated 17 July 2012, created 04 March 2012, viewed 2,543

An extended task designed to exercise students skills with mensuration, including area of triangles, Pythagoras' theorem, area of circles using π and calculations combining the results of each. There are two PowerPoints - the first setting out the problem in clear stages (ideal for students who need More… walking through the steps), and the second showing worked answers. There is also a printable worksheet to give students for reference, or as a standalone sheet.

A good practice for students to consider all aspects in a daily problem. Thanks a lot.

Excellent resource, pupils really went for it. I like Sharon Derbyshire's idea to give out the slides as clue cards which need to be sorted. Thank you for sharing!

Brilliant task, loads for students to get their teeth into here! I have used with my Year 8 class (I took out the need to use Pythagoras) and am planning on using with my year 11s for revision! Thanks

I and my pupils really enjoyed this task. It is very much a functional task in that pupils are combining the skills to solve the problems. I added difficulty by presenting the slides from the geometry field problem as clue cards, the pupils then sorted the cards and determined the order which they needed to approach the task and solve the problem. Excellent resource and have recommend to all my colleagues. Thank you for sharing!
