Transformations of the Sine and Cosine Graphs Transformations of the Sine and Cosine Graph – An Exploration By Sharon K. O’Kelley This is an exploration for Advanced Algebra or Precalculus teachers who have introduced their students to the basic sine and cosine graphs and now want their students to explore how changes to the equations affect the graphs. This is an introductory lesson whose purpose is to connect the language of Algebraic transformations to the more advanced topic of trignonometry.

Math Worksheets Land Bar modelling- a powerful visual approach for introducing number topics Building on my recent post about a taxonomy for deep learning in maths, I have been trying to think a bit deeper myself about what each type of ‘deep learning link’ might look like. In particular, I have been researching and putting a lot of thought into what effective ‘visual models’ look like for the ‘key nodes’ I have previously identified as the most important foundation maths knowledge for students to master before starting their GCSE maths course. These are principally number topics. Last year I became aware of the Singapore Maths Bar Modelling approached have recently found the time to research it further. I bought some Singapore textbooks and read about the work of Dr Yeap Ban Har.
Coxhoe Primary School - Numeracy Considerable importance is attached to the children achieving and understanding mathematical processes, concepts and skills. A favourable attitude is encouraged by presenting it in an interesting and enjoyable way, allowing the children to actively participate in the learning process, thus creating a sense of achievement and confidence. There is a strong emphasis on the development of mental arithmetic and giving opportunities for pupils to use and apply mathematics in real life situations. Maths is taught through a daily Numeracy lesson which follows the principles of the Primary Numeracy Framework.

Well, if you stop and thought about the two words, you just might be able to come up with a logical conclusion. Since a parabola is a U-shape, let's take a look at what this shape looks like in a drawing again and see if you can come up with a conclusion all on your own. Okay, now think of the two words: minimum and maximum. What do they mean? Which of the two parabolas do you think just might indicate minimum and which just might indicate maximum?

www.mathsticks.com Here's another 'why didn't I think of that' moment - a stunning place-value and calculation activity (well, we think it's fairly stunning). I had nearly forgotten about it until we started looking through some old work files in the garage. We've spent some time updating it and giving it that 'mathsticks' touch. It's a game which encourages children to practise addition as well as think carefully about place value. The fun maths game can be played by a group or even by the whole class. You need a set of cards (download the attached file and cut them up - if you laminate them and let the children use 'wipe-off' pens the cards can be used hundreds of times).
