New lessons and homework tasks on Secondary MyMaths

We are delighted to announce the release of ten new pairs of matching lesson and homework tasks on Secondary MyMaths!

These granular “small steps” lessons and homework tasks focus on some circle topics in Key Stage 3 and 4.

While designing these resources, we have considered and reviewed a wide variety of feedback from teachers on the scope, difficulty, differentiation, and accessibility of our content.

A lesson page showing a circle split into eight sectors and a parallelogram created from the same sectors. Text prompts the user to think about how the approximation of the circle’s area changes when more sectors are used.

One of the pages from a new lesson, showing a derivation for the area of a circle.

The new lesson/homework pairs cover the following topics:

  • Circumference of a circle
  • Using the circumference of a circle
  • Perimeter with semicircles and quarter circles
  • Area of a circle
  • Using the area of a circle
  • Area with semicircles and quarter circles
  • Arc length
  • Area of a sector
  • Sector radius
  • Sector angle

A homework page showing three circles with their radii labelled. Text prompts the user to calculate the circumference of each circle and give their answers in terms of pi and as a decimal.

A page from the homework task on circumference of a circle.

Find them in the ‘Latest’ or ‘Shape’ sections of the Library in the Classic MyMaths view.

A list of menu filters on MyMaths Secondary showing resources on circles.

The new lessons and homework tasks are found in the “Area and perimeter: Circles” topic under the “Shape” section in the Classic MyMaths view.

We look forward to adding more “small steps” content to Secondary MyMaths next term.

Our updates are informed by feedback from our users – if you have any feedback for us, please let us know at mail@mymaths.co.uk.
