GCSE Maths Angles Questions – Are You Prepared?
GCSE maths angles questions are going to make up a portion of your paper, the percentage of which depends on whether you have been entered for the Foundation or Higher tier paper. Nonetheless, it is important to be prepared for all possibilities, and below we are going to take a look at some of the things the maths GCSE questions may cover.
Firstly, you need to know the different types of angles. You need to know that 90° is a quarter turn, known as a right angle, and that 180° is a half turn and 360° is a full turn. A small square is used to display a right angle, so you can easily distinguish this when looking at illustrations on your maths paper. The three different type of angles you need to know are as follows – a reflex angle, which is between 180° and 360°, an obtuse angle, which is between 90° and 180°, and an acute angle, which is an angle that is less than 90°. You also need to know how to work out angles at a point – they add up to 360°, and angles on a straight line – they add up to 180°. Once you have mastered this, move onto angles on parallel lines. When another line cuts through parallel lines, it is known as intersecting transversal. This generates a pair of angles that have special properties. You need to know how to calculate this. You also need to know about different triangles, their angles and sides, as well as quadrilaterals, polygons, symmetry, and tessellations.
