Maths resource of the week 29


Each week Craig Barton, creator of www.mrbartonmaths.com, 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!

Every time I see the topic of Bearings approaching on the Scheme of Work I breathe a heavy sigh. There is just something about bearings that makes even the brightest of students struggle with it. Well, hopefully this wonderful resource from martynd will help your students along. You are the Captain of the Airbus 320 and it is your job to plot out your three days of work around Western Europe. Along the way you will not only encounter and revise bearings in a real life setting, but also calculations for average speed, time, percentages and currency conversions. And to top it all off, all the answers are included! This really is a comprehensive, well thought-out, high-quality resource.
