KS5 – BossMaths.com This is a relatively new section of the site, and as such is still growing. The resources here are not designed to substitute for a good textbook—which most sixth-formers tend to have access to anyway. The content here instead centres around dynamic interactive applets with three main purposes in mind: Math Games – building a foundation for mathematical reasoning In 2001, the National Research Council, in their report Adding it up: Helping children learn mathematics, sought to address a concern expressed by many Americans: that too few students in our schools are successfully acquiring the mathematical knowledge, skill, and confidence they need to use the mathematics they have learned.Developing Mathematical ProficiencyThe potential of different types of tasks for student learning, 2017 As we start a new school year, I expect many teachers, schools and districts to begin conversations surrounding assessment and wondering how to start learning given students who might be “behind”. I’ve shared my thoughts about how we should NOT start a school year, but I wanted to offer some alternatives in this post surrounding a piece often overlooked — our students’ confidence (including student agency, ownership and identity). When we hear ideals like the above quote, what many of us see is as missing are specific examples. How to Play:

MEI > Resources > IET Project Resources To complement their existing Faraday suite of teaching and learning resources, MEI worked with the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) to produce a set of maths resources: Short contextualised KS4 problems, which are ideal as starter activities'A Bundle of Graphs' app, which can be used on mobiles and tabletsA series of five videos looking at AS and A level mechanics practicalsA classroom poster, highlighting various maths equations and formulae The resources can be accessed from this webpage, as well as from the IET. To download any of the resources on the IET page you will need to login; if you do not already have an account, registration is free regardless of whether or not you are a member of the IET.

Mr Barton Maths arrow_back Back to A Level A Level Notes, Videos and Examples I have put together the following selection of excellent resources to help you prepare for your A Level exams. The notes are particularity useful if you save them to your phone or tablet, so you have your notes with you wherever you are. Likewise, the videos take you step-by-step through exam questions. PixiMaths KS5 resources KS5 Teaching Resources Index This booklet will help your students transition from year 11 to year 12 more successfully. It includes topics that students will need to be confident with from GCSE to help them achieve in A Level. Inspired by RISPs, I am going to be creating rich tasks to use with my year 12 class. I'll be adding to it regularly so make sure you keep checking for more!

A Collection of Virtual Math Manipulatives I have compiled some of my favorite virtual math manipulative web apps in this one resource that I hope you and your students can use this year! 👆You can share that link in Google Classroom, Seesaw, your LMS, etc. Students will be able to click on the laptops to visit five different virtual manipulative sites.

Mathshelper.co.uk A Level Resources Over the course of my teaching career I have written various revision sheets for my students at both of the schools I have taught at. I don't agree with the philosophy of cramming close to the exam, but students will be students, and I wanted mine to have a document that they could refer to the night before to ensure that they knew all the required information for the exam. Inevitably when writing them I have had in mind the set who were going to use them. If I have had a weaker set, then I have possibly been a little bit patronising in detailing even the 'obvious' points. If it was for a brighter set then I have sometimes dwelt on the very subtle areas of the course and skimming over the 'obvious'.

MEI A level Scheme of Work MEI has produced a scheme of work for the new A level starting in 2017. It comprises 43 units, each centred on one topic, with a commentary of the underlying mathematics, a sample resource, a use of technology, links with other topics, common errors, opportunities for proof and questions to promote mathematical thinking. The content addresses the three overarching themes of the new A level : Mathematical argument, language and proofMathematical problem solvingMathematical modelling This editable scheme of work is designed in the hope that in many schools and colleges mathematics colleagues will use it as a starting point to discuss the issues raised, and the units will provide a framework for their own scheme of work. The scheme of work is to be used for non-commercial purposes only; it should not be published in part or whole without permission from MEI.
