Secondary Maths Collection – MEI – Use of ICT in A Level Maths
Collection Author: Craig Barton - Maths AST and creator of www.mrbartonmaths.com (TES Name: mrbartonmaths)
Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) was founded in the early 1960s and is an independent UK curriculum development body. It is also an independent charity, with any income generated through MEI’s work is used to support mathematics education.
MEI has kindly shared the following resources with TES to support the use of ICT in A/AS Level mathematics. These are practical activities that look at how we can use such dynamic software as Autograph, Geogebra and the TI-Nspire graphical calculator to enhance the study of post-16 topics including co-ordinate geometry and calculus. They move away from a traditional textbook approach by challenging students to investigate, make predictions and explain results.
These activities are ideal for use in a computer room, or for students to investigate at home before more formal study in the classroom. In each case, the pdf file contains full instructions and tricky challenges, and the attached files can be used to demonstrate and consolidate understanding back in the classroom on the interactive whiteboard/projector
I really hope you and your students enjoy these resources, and please click here to find out more about the work of MEI
