Main – Use the Spreadsheet and emphasise importance of layout. In the method, show the class how to do the ‘checker.’ Afterwards get students to do the worksheet.
Plenary – Get the students to write a paragraph on how they would solve a trial and improvement question.
Starter: Have some trigonometry questions on the board (basic) and play Dad’s Army intro to the class as they enter

Above is a stop sign, it is a regular octagon:
- What is meant by a ‘regular’ octagon?
- What do the angles in an octagon add up to?
- What is the size of each angle in the regular octagon above?
