Maths resource of the week 16

Maths resource of the week 16

Each week Craig Barton, creator of, picks out a TES maths resource that has caught his eye and records a short video about it. These videos will attempt to explain why Craig likes the resource, and offer up a few ideas about how it might be used in the classroom. If you have watched the video, downloaded the resource, and then used it in a lesson, it would be fantastic if you could return to this page to share your thoughts and ideas in the Comments section below, or to simply pass on your thanks to the author!

To access all the Resources of the Week from this year, and the archived collection from last year, just click on the links at the bottom of the page. And if you've spotted a resource that you feel not enough people know about, then just drop me an email.

Those of you who have followed my videos in the past will know that I am a massive fan of using dynamic geometry packages (especially Autograph) to convey and enrich understanding of transformations. Now, once students have got to grips with the basics of the four transformations, it might be a good idea to throw this lovely resource at them. It consists of three multiple choice questions which are cleverly designed to unearth any nasty misconceptions students might have about reflection, rotation and enlargement. And if that wasn't enough, at the end there is a lovely little discussion activity involving a ginormous sandwich. What more could you want from a resource?
