• mathematics • teaching • KS5 • PermalinkAt a conference run by the BBO Maths Hub today, Jo Morgan mentioned that small angle approximations are a topic recently (re)introduced to the single maths A-level course, and many teachers may be unfamiliar with it.

During the day and on my journey home, I thought about this and some of the connections between it and other areas of the syllabus.

I hope that this post offers some different perspectives on the topic.
