Secondary resources collections featured in the TES magazine: Friday 13th May 2011
- With everything that has been happening in the world over the last few months; earthquake, tsunami and impending nuclear disaster in Japan; trouble in the Middle East and a civil war in the Ivory Coast it seems timely to look at Global Citizenship resources this month. Within this collection you will find everything you need in order to get students to think about and reflect upon their position as part of the human race.
- Autograph is a piece of mathematical software that many schools have tucked away on their network somewhere, but that often only gets used to draw the odd straight line or curve. This is as big a crime as using an iPad as a coffee mat.
Autograph can do so much more, enabling you to dynamically demonstrate to your students topics as diverse as transformations, cumulative frequency diagrams, the fundamental theorem of calculus and the outcomes of rolling several dice. Autograph can be used with all ages and abilities, from primary school students right up to Further Mathematicians with eyes on a mathematics degree. This collection is a series of videos put together by me which aim to give you a few ideas of how you could use Autograph in your classroom. You do have to put up with my annoying voice, but hopefully there will be enough tips and suggestions for beginners and advanced users to help you get over that.
- The category of MLD is wide ranging and can cover a varied spectrum of pupils and needs. The range of resources may be used therefore with a variety of pupils and contexts. The resources have been chosen to offer teachers a host of opportunities to extend learning in many curriculum areas. The majority of the resources can also be further adapted to meet the specific needs of learners.
