TES Top 10 Resources: Transformations The following collection of resources have been assembled by the TES Maths Panel. They can be downloaded for free by registering on the TES website. Transformations are probably one of the most visual topics in maths. From the simple ideas of moving objects, to the more abstract of rotating 3D shapes, the whole topic benefits from using a variety of methods to help students really understand what is going on. Top 10 resources: 1. Age range: 11-16 Format: Word document and Publisher file A set of four activities each focusing on one of the transformations. 2. Age range: 11-16 Format: PowerPoint presentation This resource on transformations helps consolidate learning. 3.

Mathematics - Department for Education The current national curriculum programmes of study for mathematics at key stages 3 and 4 have been disapplied with effect from 1 September 2013 and are no longer statutory. This means that schools are free to develop their own curriculums for mathematics that best meet the needs of their pupils, in preparation for the introduction of the new national curriculum from September 2014. Further details are available via the link on this page. Mathematics remains a compulsory national curriculum subject at all four key stages. The disapplied programmes of study for mathematics at key stages 3 and 4, and the attainment target level descriptions, are accessible from the links in these page

Variation Theory – Intelligent, varied maths practice from Craig Barton @mrbartonmaths NRICH Teachers Primary Pupils Secondary Students Events and PD "It gave me some good ideas to use in the classroom and ... a link that I can get all of the activities from." Book NRICH Bespoke PDBook Forthcoming EventsBook our Hands-on Roadshow Your Solutions Nick's Mathematical Puzzles Welcome to my selection of mathematical puzzles. What's new? See puzzle 160. The math puzzles presented here are selected for the deceptive simplicity of their statement, or the elegance of their solution. They range over geometry, probability, number theory, algebra, calculus, trigonometry, and logic. Explaining how an answer is arrived at is more important than the answer itself. Each puzzle is assigned a level of difficulty of between one and four stars, with four being the most difficult. The source for each problem is given at the bottom of the solution page. I welcome feedback of any kind. Some brief biographical information. Nick Back to top
