Harrogate Tutors offers Maths, English, Science and 11 Plus tuition to students across the Harrogate area. As part of our blogging we are starting to cover a series of GCSE Maths topics in detail, to see what the best way to approach them is and what the best free revision resources are. This time we are looking at 3D SOH CAH TOA questions or trigonometry and 3D Pythagoras. Whether you are a GCSE Maths tutor in Harrogate or a student looking to find great revision materials then you should find our suggestions useful.
3D Trigonometry and Pythagoras questions appear to have a bigger part in the new GCSE Maths than they use too. We think that one reason for this is that the new questions types on the major GCSE Maths exam boards such as AQA, OCR and Edexcel, all look to have more application and context within them and 3D questions can offer this. From trying to find a missing angle in a cuboid to having to perform Pythagoras to find a missing length in another 3D shape, there are many different scenarios that the examiners can pull on in order to contextualise these questions. In order to overcome the difficulties presented by 3D Trig and Pythag questions we recommend students practise as many different types of questions as possible. To access free 3D Trigonometry and Pythagoras worksheets and revision tests, you can use Maths Made Easy. If after plenty of revision your child still needs to some help then you can always look to book one of our expert GCSE Maths tutors in Harrogate.
