# Maths KS2: Investigating angles

**The Ugly Sisters are not happy because Puss in Boots has very dirty and stinky boots.**

They pull them off his feet and put them in the washing machine.

The machine has six settings (including the 'off' setting) on the dial, equally spaced.

There is a reminder that there are 360 degrees in a circle and then three angle-related questions of increasing difficulty are asked, working on sixths of 360 degrees.

This is from the series: Let's Do Maths

*Teacher Notes*

*Working with the fact that there are 360 degrees in a full circle and that angles are degrees of turn, the washing machine dial sets a real life context for working out fractions of a circle and angle learning.*

*Curriculum Notes*

*This clip will be relevant for teaching Maths at KS2 in England and Wales, Early and First Level and Second Level in Scotland and KS1 and KS2 in Northern Ireland.*
