Graphing primer
In this module we'll talk about how to graph data, and particularly how to set up the graph (I know you're good at putting dots on a graph once the axes are labelled and all the little tickmarks are drawn in!) Believe it or not, every TA gets a handful of reports each semester where the graph has axes that are switched, or the graph is all squashed into one tiny corner of the paper, or nothing is labelled. Well, those reports don't have to come from you! Below you will find an easy checklist to making the perfect graph. On the following pages, we'll practice some of the skills you will need... Checklist: Choose your x and y variables carefully.

Animations for A level
Last week I presented on A level resources at Stuart Price's 'Maths in the Sticks' event. I spoke briefly about how we can use animations to support our explanations of mathematical concepts. Many teachers already make use of programmes such as Geogebra, Autograph and Desmos, but here I'm talking specifically about animated gifs that teachers can simply paste into a PowerPoint. Gifs run on a loop so students can watch them for a while, providing 'thinking time' in the lesson and allowing new ideas to click into place. I use gifs alongside physical demonstrations where possible, for example when I teach Volume of Revolution I show animations and use paper props too (see Gems 45). So where can you get animated maths gifs?

Nuffield Foundation
This site provides resources for teaching the use of mathematics and statistics. The resources are self-contained and can be used for any lessons where the context or skills are relevant. Nuffield Mathematics resources are divided into three levels and can be used to support a wide variety of qualifications, including Free-Standing Mathematics Qualifications (FSMQs), A/AS Use of Mathematics and the new Core Maths qualifications. We provide schemes of work for using the resources to support Use of Mathematics and FSMQs. We have also outlined which resources are relevant to each of the six new Core Maths qualifications.

Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching - Year 8
The year is divided into 2 parts - 8A and 8B. For each part there is a Pupils' Practice Book. Book 8A covers Units 1 to 11.
Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching - Year 9
The year is divided into 2 parts - 9A and 9B. For each part there is a Pupils' Practice Book. Book 9A covers Units 1 to 8. Book 9B covers Units 9 to 18. Each Unit will have its own set of interactive tutorials - one for each section within that unit.
