This worksheet on the construction of geometric figures covers the first week of constructions in grade 9, term 2. It goes through constructing angles using a protractor and then constructing those same angles using a compass and ruler. The worksheet then uses constructions to explore the properties of quadrilaterals and triangles. This includes congruency, diagonal […]

This grade 8 worksheet begins with the basics of Pythagoras.   It focuses on writing down the correct Pythagoras formula, substituting correctly into the formula, finding the longest side. It then moves on to finding any side of a right-angled triangle. Finally students are asked to prove that a triangle is right-angled by using the […]

This grade 10 maths worksheet on Measurement looks at the surface area and volume formulas for the sphere, cone, cube, cylinder, pyramids (square and equilateral triangle- base), and rectangular prisms. It then goes on to apply these equations, through changing measurements and solving calculations.   Download here Measurement worksheet here: Worksheet 18 – Measurement Worksheet […]

This grade 9 maths worksheet covers transformation geometry for term 4. It tests the definitions of reflections, rotations and translations, as well as enlargements and reductions. It then asks for for the images of the points affected by these transformations and then for the rules for given points. Finally there are application questions and questions […]

This grade 8 worksheet is for the last section of term 2 according to the CAPS curriculum, on straight line geometry. It includes questions on parallel and perpendicular lines, corresponding, alternating and co-interior angles, as well as vertically opposite, supplementary and corresponding angles. There is also a fully worked out memorandum. Please note that with […]

These notes cover everything covered in the grade 10 section of Measurement for CAPS, including revision of grade 9 work (perimeter and area) and surface area and volume of 3D shapes.

Factorising is hard sometimes – particularly if you cant remember the factor pairs for a certain number. Here is a trick to help you. First put the calculator in Table mode by pressing  Then press the  button. At the top of the fraction put the number you are trying to factorise in. Next press the  […]

This is really easy! If you have the x and y coordinates: For example: (3; 4) Type in 3  4    Your calculator screen will then look like this: r is your hypotenuse – which is 5 and your angle made with between the y-axis and the hypotenuse is 53o  What if you have the angle and […]

Second Common Differences can be a bit complicated. The SHARP EL-535 can be very useful to help you figure out the formula and also to check whether your answers are right. Let’s do an example: You are given the pattern 3, 7, 15… On your calculator press: 1 (For stat) and then 2 for Quad […]
