Problem Solving - ICT

Scenario based on being stranded on a desert island. Scenario ‘email’ introduced the task to the children. Differentiated activities then introduced which all lead to solving different problems. Whole class work together on differentiated activities, before coming together to share the results of their findings.

Relationships

Relationships

This is a great, open ended, rich maths task which encourages students to understand connections - relationships - between many areas of maths. Here is… a number machine, algebra, graph, sentence, sequence and input/output table for students to investigate… and hopefully come to the conclusion that all represent the same relationship in different ways. I’ve tried this a few times with Yr7, 8, 9 students and, although they start off slow and I keep my own input to a minimum, they usually get there and appreciate it all the more after a while. If the class is really struggling then you could use the suggestions for ways to investigate which are on slide 4. To extend this rich, open task students could create their own set of cards. The file ‘Relationships’ is the main activity and the ‘LessonPlan’ goes with this. I suggest print out the main page for pairs of students as well as projecting from of class. A subsequent activity / lesson could be students to complete the number machine, table, sentence and graph from the algebra. The file ‘Relationships2’ are the resources that you’ll need for this with the file ‘LessonPlan2’ as the lesson plan. Tried and tested, and corrected(!), in the classroom many times. This download includes a pdf files as well as the original powerpoint and word files for easy editing.

Representing Direct Proportions

Representing Direct Proportions

A task designed to help students see the connections between different parts of Maths. Pupils start with direct proportion questions that they have to answer. Students then add different representations of each question, including: - Formulae - Ratio - Table - Graph Finally, to make the connections more visual, students colour-code the poster where connections are found.

Introduction to Creating Algorithms!

Introduction to Creating Algorithms!

The aim of this resource is to introduce students to the basic concepts of algorithm design. This resource is aimed at absolute beginners of algorithm design and takes you through the following parts: 1. Understanding algebra 2. Understanding Boolean 3. Using Variables 4. Introduction to Algorithm Design i. Sequence ii. Selection (IF, ELSE, ELSE IF) iii. Variables iv. Looping (WHILE and REPEAT) v. Functions Each section includes activities to develop student understanding of the concept. The work finishes with a differentiated consolidation challenge, applying the concepts learned throughout the unit. ***Please leave a Review!***
