Maths resource of the week 31


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!

The weekend of June 2nd 2012 marks the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Help celebrate this occasion in the best way possible… with not one, but three mathematical mysteries! These are three fantastic resources carefully designed by Laura Rees-Hughes, testing thinking and logic skills, as well as topic-specific knowledge and application. They cover the topics of bearings (everybody's favourite!), probability and speed, distance time. Which horse should the Queen place her money on? Will Will and Kate make it to the celebrations on this? Get your students into groups and let the discussions, calculations and positive group dynamics flow. Thanks to Laura for the wonderful resource, and happy Jubilee weekend from all at TES Maths.
