Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free angles around a point worksheet of 44 questions and answers
An angle is formed when two lines or rays intersect at a vertex. Measuring angles with a protractor on a scale diagram is one way to find the size of unknown angles., however, a more efficient method is to use known angle facts when finding missing angles or calculating angles in 2D shape problems.
Angles around a point, or angles in a full turn, sum to 360°. So if, for example, we know that three angles ‘a’, ’b’ and ‘c’ lie around a point, and we know that angle ’a’ is a right angle, and we also know the size of angle ‘b’, we can find the size of angle ‘c’ by subtracting angle ‘b’ from 270°.
Looking forward, students can then progress to additional angles rules worksheets and other geometry worksheets, for example an angles in polygons worksheet or volume and surface area of spheres worksheet.
For more teaching and learning support on Geometry our GCSE maths lessons provide step by step support for all GCSE maths concepts.
There will be students in your class who require individual attention to help them succeed in their maths GCSEs. In a class of 30, it’s not always easy to provide.
