I can recognise that angles at a point sum to 360° and use this to solve problems.

## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- Angles that meet at a point have a sum of 360 degrees.
- To calculate missing angles you can use addition and subtraction.
- Use mental or written strategies to calculate with angles up to 360 degrees.

### Common misconception

Pupils think that the whole 360 degrees must be composed of different sized angles.

Ensure pupils are exposed to examples where two or more of the angles summing to 360 degrees are the same.

### Keywords

Point - A point is an exact location. It has no size, only position.

Sum - The sum is the total when numbers are added together.
