Input, Process and Output

This resource looks at what properties of infra-red make it so useful in gaming technology? Students develop a working prototype of a simple infra-red electronic circuit, identify an input and an output and test the performance of the circuit. They then explain how the findings of their research could affect their...

Numeracy Refresher

Mathcentre provide this numeracy refresher resource, which was developed and trialled by staff of the University of Birmingham Careers Centre and subsequently used widely throughout the HE Sector. There are sections which review decimals, fractions, averages, percentages and ratios, making it a useful resource for...

Stuck in the Mud

Aimed at Key Stage Two, this resource looks at the problem of launching RNLI lifeboats from different types of terrain in all kinds of weather. Linked to work on forces, shape and space and design and technology, it introduces the concept that both force and area affect the pressure applied on a surface. Working...

Propulsion

In this activity, students consider energy transfers and calculate work done, speed, power and efficiency in order to compare two RNLI lifeboats in a rescue situation. They then go on to explore how much energy can be saved by restricting the speed during non-emergency situations. Students work out how the...

Navigation

This resource is designed to enable students to be able to describe the differences between scalar and vector quantities, be able to calculate velocity, acceleration and distance covered and to be able to calculate resultant velocity of parallel vectors and vectors at right angles to each other. Students view a...

Adding Outwards

This activity is based upon addition and subtraction of integers, requiring students to find patterns and relationships, develop formulae and prove results.

The resource consists of printable worksheets, teachers' notes and solutions.

The activity can be extended by the use of algebra to explain...

Circles in a Triangle

In this activity, students are presented with a series of different sized equilateral triangles each containing a number of circles, each of radius one unit. Students are required to find the exact area of each triangle.

The activity is extended into three dimensions by considering the volume of shapes...

Difference Patterns

This activity requires students to generate patterns created by the subtraction of integers. Students are asked to record their findings and to explore whether they are able to work backwards.

The resource includes a hand out and a blank grid which can be duplicated for student use. The teachers' notes...

Number Spirals

This activity requires students to generate sequences of integers from a set of given number spirals.

The first number spiral is on a square grid and has clear examples showing the rules for allowed sequences. Students are asked to generate sequences, explain patterns and find the nth term for each...

Number Type Cards

This activity requires students to investigate different types of number by ordering different sets of digits. The types of number are odd, even, primes, multiples and factors.

The resource contains printable worksheets which could allow for differentiation. The set of printable digit cards could be useful...

Stack 'Em Up

This activity involves matching 3-D shapes with plans and elevations. It may be suitable for group work. The first page of the handout shows an example of a 3-D shape with the plan, front and side elevations. There are five other pages of diagrams to be duplicated to make a card sort for the ten 3-D shapes.

Triangles in a Spiral

This activity is based upon a practical task to fit a set of similar triangles into a spiral. It is in two parts, the first of which is more accessible.

In Part 1 students are presented with a series of different sized similar triangles. These fit together to form a spiral and students look at how many are...

Which Operation?

This activity begins with an example of how to get from a start number to a given finish number using given operations such as +5 or x3. Students are then presented with a set of structured problems involving them selecting ways of getting from a start number to a finish number using other given operations....
