Maths resource of the week 19

Maths resource of the week 19

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.

One of the greatest difficulties that my students seem to face in the exam is understanding exactly what the question is asking them to do. Strange words like “evaluate”, “justify” and “prove” seem to stop the students in their tracks, confuse them and make them think that they can’t actually do the question. Any resource that can help alleviate the problem is always going to be popular with me, and that is what I think this particular resource from paulcollins is excellent. In the video we take a look at the resource itself, and then I suggest a couple of ways it could be made even more useful in the classroom.
