LONG TERM GOAL Enhance 21st Century Approaches in Teaching Mathematics*
S H O R T T E R M G O A L S • Emphasis on mental Mathematics skills, to enhance higher- • order thinking. • Enabling students: • to identify and calculate the angles made by parallel lines. • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vvrac2aG6Y4&feature=relmfu • to calculate the bearing of certain point or object from a • given point. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVnVHMHwTOU&feature=related • to locate the position of a certain point from a given point • using bearings . • to use bearings in 3D problems. • to solve 3D problems involving sine rule and cosine rule.
