National Strategies Secondary Maths Collection – Improving Learning in Mathematics: Mechanics and Decision
Collection Author: Craig Barton - Maths AST and creator of www.mrbartonmaths.com (TES Name: mrbartonmaths)
Electronic copies of the excellent resources from the Improving Learning in Mathematics, otherwise known as the Standards Units. If you haven’t used these before, they are definitely worth a look, and if you haven’t used them for a while, they are definitely worth a second look! This collection is aimed at applied post-16 mathematics modules and goes by the name of “Mechanics and Decision”
- Learners explore the properties of graphs in decision mathematics and develop strategies for solving the route inspection problem (Chinese Postman).
- Starting with an examination question, learners create and solve their own questions.
- Learners create and solve their own problems by looking at different stages of solutions to mechanics problems. They then resolve mistakes and inconsistencies.
