Maths resource of the week 20

Maths resource of the week 20

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.

Each week I record a short Autograph tutorial for TES, and you can find my entire collection on the TES Secondary Maths Collection Page. However, for one week only we have Douglas Butler, the creator of Autograph, demonstrating how you can combine Autograph with Google Earth to bring the concept of gradient to life. We start off at Melbourne airport and then take a quick flight across to a school in Bolton, plotting gradients as we travel. This technique can easily be transferred to any part of the world, making it personalised to your students. You could even get them on the computer themselves plotting the gradients of various journeys. Excellent stuff!
