Maths resource of the week 35


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!

With both the end of term and the London 2012 Olympic Games fast approaching, wouldn't it be nice to find a resource that was suitable for both of these momentous occasions?... Well, I have good news for you, because here is the resource you have been looking for! Laura Rees-Hughes has kindly produced four amazing mathematical mysteries, each with an Olympic theme. Whilst trying to solve problems like "Who are you backing?" and "What is it worth?", students will be practising lots of key areas of mathematics, including percentages, speed, distance, time and money, as well as using their logical and thinking skills. You final few lessons will undoubtedly be awarded the gold medal. So, roll on the Olympic, and more importantly, roll on the end of term!
