National Strategies Secondary Maths Collection – Improving Learning in Mathematics: Mechanics and Decision

TES Secondary maths resource collections

Collection Author: Craig Barton - Maths AST and creator of (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”

O1 Moving from Eulerian graphs to the route inspection

  • Learners explore the properties of graphs in decision mathematics and develop strategies for solving the route inspection problem (Chinese Postman).

O2 Exploring equations of motion

  • Starting with an examination question, learners create and solve their own questions.

O3 Solving problems using Newton’s second law

  • Learners create and solve their own problems by looking at different stages of solutions to mechanics problems. They then resolve mistakes and inconsistencies.
