This SMILE resource contains two packs of games, investigations, worksheets and practical activities supporting the teaching and learning of angle, from identifying right angles to working with bearings.

Angle pack one contains eight work cards with a wide variety of activities covering identification of right angles and equal angles, working with right angles, measuring and drawing angles, using Logo, and measuring in clockwise and anti-clockwise directions.

Angle pack two contains eight work cards with activities requiring students to estimate the size of angles, use bearings and scale drawing, draw equiangular spirals, draw patterns from spirals, describe journeys using bearings, and calculate back bearings.

SMILE (Secondary Mathematics Individualised Learning Experiment) was initially developed as a series of practical activities for secondary school students by practising teachers in the 1970s. It became a complete individualised scheme based around a network of activity cards and assessments.

Related resources include answers to all of the cards and test books and answers.
