Triangles in GCSE Maths

Triangles come up a lot in GCSE mathematics. And there are a variety of different methods that can be applied to questions. If you are given a triangle with a missing side or angle, there are four different methods that you can use to find the missing information (bold means… Continue reading Triangles in GCSE Maths

A guide to trigonometry (SOHCAHTOA) – Part 2

In the last blog, I introduced a method for using trigonometry to find the missing side in a right-angled triangle. This blog will build on that and show you how to find the missing angle in a right-angled triangle. I would recommend reading that before this one for an introduction… Continue reading A guide to trigonometry (SOHCAHTOA) – Part 2

A guide to trigonometry (SOHCAHTOA) – Part 1

Following on from the previous blog on Pythagorasâ€™ theorem, this blog will be a guide to solving trigonometry questions. This guide will show you how to use trigonometry to find a missing side in a right-angled triangle. The next blog will build on this idea and show you how to… Continue reading A guide to trigonometry (SOHCAHTOA) – Part 1

How to find the nth term of a linear sequence

Following on from the last blog on identifying different types of sequences, in this blog I will show you how to find the nth term of a linear sequence. This is a relatively simple process, but is incredibly useful. What is the nth term, and why is it useful? First… Continue reading How to find the nth term of a linear sequence
