Secondary Maths Collection: Core 4 Revision Play-Lists
Collection Author: Craig Barton - Maths AST and creator of www.mrbartonmaths.com (TES Name: mrbartonmaths)
Colin Hegarty and Brian Arnold are two teachers who are firm believers in the use of videos to support learning. Recently they have been experimenting with the concept of the “flipped classroom”, whereby routine skills and information for a particular topic are gained by the students at home watching a specially created video, and then precious lesson time is dedicated to assessing and extending these skills. It is an interesting model, often given a bad name in the UK through association with the heavily criticised Khan Academy, but one which I feel has a great deal of potential to both change and improve teaching and learning.
Colin and Brian have been kind enough to share some of their many video collections with TES. I hope that your students can benefit from these, and also you may be inspired to create your own videos using some of the excellent free screen capturing software that is out there. I have recorded a brief video demonstrating how you can use Jing to easily capture and create videos.
This particular collection is concerned with tackling the important concepts for the Core 4 A Level module. Here are Colin and Brian to introduce it:
“I created these video to help students work through the key topics that come up in the OCR Core 4 exam. Each week we revised a topic in class (e.g. vectors, implicit differentiation etc) and made a set of revision notes/cards. The homework that week was to do all the past paper questions that have come up in relation to that topic from January 2007 to June 2011. Students could use these videos to help them mark their work or use if they got stuck while doing past exam questions”
