Maths KS2: Understanding angles
At the Grecian Pizza Parlour, new apprentice Ambrose is left to invent pizzas with toppings of various angles around the circle.
He makes right angles, acute angles and we learn how angles in a circle total 360 degrees.
Three questions at the end of the clip consolidate the language and understanding of angles.
This is from the series: Let's Do Maths
This clip could be used as a lesson starter to reinforce the understanding of angles totalling 360 degrees.
The scenario ends with three differentiated questions that can be paused for response, discussion, finding solutions and stimulating extensions to the learning, as children make up their own pizza angle combinations.
This clip will be relevant for teaching Maths at KS2 in England and Wales and Second Level in Scotland and KS1 and KS2 in Northern Ireland.
