They are not pitched for top sets in the slightest - you know that. This is really very tiresome. I *think* you are referring to a story I told for about two seconds about a teacher who did something inappropriate for their top set class. But who knows.

Horizontally?! I assume you're joking. Vertical angle (now called vertically opposite) is found in English in 1571 in A Geometrical Practical Treatize Named Pantometria edited by Thomas Digges: "Two right lines crossing one another, make the contrary or verticall angles equall"

Huh, staring at a board? It’s not one or the other. I was referring to a taking a top set secondary class out to learn what an acute angle was without 1st checking whether they already knew it (they did, very much). I talk a lot more about this in my session on angle basics.

Sure, I just see no purpose in forcing a formula when reasoning does the trick

My desk at work was so happy I managed to get the time as 14:14! (Note the well placed copy of book, the pupils at school think it is beautiful.)

I often talk about the fact that we mustn’t assume knowledge of KS2 content (even for those who met expected standard). They do acute and obtuse from Year 2/3 - I’m not convinced that running round the playground in Year 7 is a sensible solution if they don’t get it yet.

We have watched the first half of jo’s angles in parallel lines in depth as a department. Great CPD for us all! Can’t wait to finish off next half term 👍🏻☺️
