Resourceaholic: 5 Maths Gems #33

This is where I share five teaching ideas I've seen on Twitter. Well it's been fun teaching in this week's heatwave hasn't it?! 446: Always, Sometimes, Never - Geometry. FMSP Co-ordinate Geometry Problems. FMSP Shape and Angle Problems. 481: Two Circles and One Square. 7 Days of Maths #7. 484: Tempus Fugit. MEDIAN Don Steward secondary maths teaching: find the ostrich. This game was one of the SMILE software programmes (as 'Elephant' I think - on Microsmile, first 30) NRICH have a (find the giraffe) software version it seems better, initially at least, for students to call out coordinates to each other the game can lead to some work on 'Manhattan metric' geometry: which points are 3 away from (4, 4)?

Which are equidistant from (1, 5) and (5, 1)? Find points (P) so that the distance away from (2, 3) add the distance away from (6, 3) is 8 the game can also be played with negative coordinates. Tile Pile by Desmos. This lesson helps students count large numbers of things by using the mathematical structures of area and proportionality.

Tile Pile by Desmos

Students use a ratio table to keep track of their work as they count the number of tiles required to cover a floor, and the time required to put those tiles in place. How the activity works: 1. Tile Each student tiles a square and learns the time it took them to complete the tiling. Resourceaholic: New GCSE: Tangents and Areas. At first glance it appears that calculus features in the new GCSE specification.

Resourceaholic: New GCSE: Tangents and Areas

On closer inspection it turns out that our students will find the gradient of a curve by drawing a suitable tangent rather than by differentiating. And instead of integrating, students will use the trapezium rule (or similar) to find the area under a curve. So calculus remains reserved for Key Stage 5, but our students will now be better prepared for calculus when they first meet it. GCSE will have given them a conceptual understanding of rate of change and an ability to interpret this contextually.

Mr Barton Maths (Collation of Resources) 3. Can you solve it? Are you smarter than a Japanese schoolchild? Hello Guzzlers.

Can you solve it? Are you smarter than a Japanese schoolchild?

It is with huge pleasure that I introduce today’s puzzle, which is already a big deal in Japan. It’s called Menseki Meiro, or Area Maze, and I hope you find it as brilliant as I do. Area Maze is the creation of Naoki Inaba, one of the world’s most prolific inventors of logic puzzles. He came up with Area Maze after being asked to come up with a puzzle by the head of a crammer school in Japan. The puzzle is utterly simple to explain: find the missing value, which is denoted by a question mark highlighted in grey.

Reason and Wonder

Setting One evening, with my phone battery nearly depleted, I plugged in and took a series of screenshots to track the percent battery charge (as a function of time). I limited my use of the phone to screenshots and nothing else during my data collection. Trigonometric Ratios - Interactive Graph. Great Maths Teaching Ideas. Angle Facts: New Secondary Maths Curriculum Collection 14 - Mr Barton Maths Blog. Each fortnight, I will put together a selection of resources designed to help cover the objectives of the new 2014 maths curriculum for secondary schools (Key Stage 3).

These are all freely available from the TES website. You can find the full collection here I hope you find them useful Pupils should be taught to: apply the properties of angles at a point, angles at a point on a straight line, vertically opposite angles. Concentric Circle Problem. Taking Back The F-Word. My pet peeve these days is that everyone assumes that when describing lessons, the word “fun” implies a crappy lesson lacking depth that involves running around, searching for things, spinning endlessly on the spot or solving a murder mystery.

It shouldn’t! It never did before those silly ideas! I’m taking back the F-Word. My lessons are fun. At least to me! Maths ROTW 79 - Lesson: Real Life Graphs by Dominic Penney - Mathematics teaching - TES Mathematics - TES Community. For the next few weeks, the ROTW will be looking at examples of complete lessons on TES. I find resources like this fascinating, as they give you a real insight into a teacher’s thinking, far more than you would get from a PowerPoint or a worksheet alone. The advice I give to all trainee teachers and NQTs that I work with is to take lessons like this, study them, and then adapt them to suit their own teaching style and the needs of their students. As ever, I am eternally indebted to teachers for sharing their resources on TES, but a special thank you to those who upload complete lessons like this.

They are so useful n sharing good practice, and have a huge and positive impact on teaching and learning around the world. What is it? A complete lesson on Real Life Graphs kindly uploaded and shared by Pixi_17. Area Problem #20. Coordinate Problem #2. 479: Dihedral Angle. Honeybees and Hexagons. There are 10 kinds of people in the world... Just had to share about a lovely Pythagoras lesson I just had with a bright Year 8 group.

Thanks to the amazing Jo Morgan (@mathsjem) I found some great resources through her resourceaholic blog – specifically these Pythagoras problems from The Chalk Face and Spiderbox and this problem from Illustrative Mathematics. I cut the problems up and put one on each pair of desks. The girls were allowed to work in pairs and simply had to present me with as many correct answers as they could in one hour. They had 3 ‘hint’ tokens that they could trade in for help at any point. I was really pleased with how they worked, one pair even manged five correct solutions in the time allowed. My group have only just learnt Pythagoras’ Theorem, but this is something you could bring out for revision with older classes as well.

It’s a rebranding of the 90 problems they released to support the teaching of Further Maths GCSE in 2008. There a number of issues with many of the diagrams on the newer version, so I’ve attached the 2008 version for your interest, here: AQA 90 Problem solving questions.
