This report, published by LSIS, describes an action research project by Leeds College of Building. The practical construction of the roof involves using a roofing square. It was identified that staff required professional development on how the trigonometric information on the square has been derived and relates to the mathematics involved in roof construction. The project had two main aims: the development of materials and the delivery of training to vocational staff.
