For The background for the presentation of maths for kids In the classroom and at home, students use Popplet for learning. Used as a mind-map, Popplet helps students think and learn visually.
Students can capture facts, thoughts, and images and learn to create relationships between them. In the office or on the go, professionals use Popplet to generate ideas and plan projects. Used to brainstorm or jot down notes, Popplet helps professionals organize their thoughts and generate their next big idea. App Store is a service mark of Apple Inc. Farlingaye High School in Woodbridge, Suffolk adopt an investigative, exploratory, project based approach to their Year 7-8 curriculum. Task Activity – This is when Pupils work in groups tackling the project.
These resources are at 3 levels. Within each topic area shown below there are Starters, Assignments and Skill Activities. USA TODAY allows students to study mathematics in real-world context while interpreting graphs and charts and analyzing data. It gives young people aged 11-19 opportunities to explore real world projects in an exciting way. Our school advisers work with teachers in primary, secondary and special schools, using the experience of pupils and schools to develop financial acumen in young people. The overview article can be read on its own, or used as motivational material for the two worksheets.

Investigating whether boys or girls have faster reaction times. Construct a cotton reel tank using matchstick, elastic band, piece of tape and cotton reel. Investigate how distances or speeds can be improved, collect continuous data and analyse. Estimation Problems Estimating lengths and heights. Instructions and Script – You could make a video with someone reading the instructions. The Liverpool Mathematical Society have produced an update to the CDRom which now comprises 250 mathematics puzzles designed for pupils from top juniors to upper sixth form students arranged in ten boxes of 25 puzzles.
These have been used in a number of Suffolk schools with LEA support. These games are then played and evaluated by other class members. This involves developing ideas from 2-dimensional shape-and-space, together with basic concepts of probability. As part of its intention to promote the enjoyment of maths, the MMP has taken over Simon Singh’s enormously popular Enigma Schools Project. We will visit your school with a WW2 Enigma machine and deliver code breaking workshops designed to engage students from 8 to 18 with mathematics by exploring cryptography through the ages. Presentations are intended to be as interactive as possible, involving a circus of hands-on code-breaking activities, and can be adapted to suit audiences of all abilities from Year 4 to Year 13.
