#### AQA Use of Maths (pilot) 2018 Data Sheet Practice

This bundle contains practice questions for the 2018 Data Sheets. The following units are included: Calculus, Data Analysis, Decision Mathematics. Solutions are included for all questions.

#### Use of Maths (pilot) Decision Maths 2018 Data Sheet Practice

These questions are based on the 2018 Data Sheet for the Decision Maths unit of AQA Use of Maths (pilot). They are designed to help students prepare for the exam and to familiarise them with the contexts in the data sheet. Solutions are included.

#### Nearest Neighbour Algorithm

For Edexcel Further Maths Decision Mathematics 1 book. This powerpoint goes through example 10 from chapter 5 Travelling Salesman Problem section 5.4 Using the nearest neighbour algorithm to find an upper bound. It uses animations to help show how the algorithm is applied.

#### Decision Maths Homework Sheets

Homework sheets covering Kruskal’s algorithm, Prim’s algorithm, Dijkstra’s algorithm, Chinese Postman algorithm, Travelling Salesman Problem and Ciritical Path Analysis.

#### AQA Use of Maths (pilot) booklets for USE 1, Data, Decision

Notes and examples are provided for all topics in these three units of the AQA Use of Maths (pilot) syllabus.

#### AQA Use of Maths (Pilot) Decision Maths Booklet

Covers the entire content for AQA Decision Maths for Use of Maths (pilot). Notes and worked examples are provided for all topics.

#### Decision 1 Revision Resources

A selection of D1 revision resources for the AQA A-Level Spec. These resources include revision sheets and posters with fill in the gaps to help student remember the information. These sheets cover the sorting algorithms, definitions for D1 and other algorithms.

#### D1/ D2 - Travelling Salesperson game

A Powerpoint game that can be used to help engage students in D1 and D2. Although it is made with the travelling salesperson algorithm in mind, it can also be used for Kruskal's, Prim's on a distance matrix and the nearest neighbour algorithm.

#### Decision 1 - All lessons and resources for all chapters

PowerPoints written so that a teacher can learn from the PowerPoints and teach from them. Students can use the PowerPoints to learn independently too. Many colleagues have used my lessons on Decision 1 without a strong understanding of Decision themselves. Includes all chapters: Algorithms, Networks, Route Inspection, Critical paths, Linear Programming and Matchings Includes all worksheets, answers and assessments

#### Decision 1 - Chapters 4 and 5 - Route Inspection and Critical Path

Including Gantt charts and Scheduling. Everything you need to teach chapters 4 and 5 in Decision 1.

#### Mathematics Decision 1 Lessons

This is a set of lessons for Decision Mathematics. The resources include Powerpoints and worksheets. Powerpoint include: Learning objectives Examples animated at each step to support explanations and independent learning Important information written in red boxes to scaffold learning. Worksheets include examples on a word document for students to write on. Topics: Spanning Trees Linear Programming Dijkstra’s Algorithm Chinese Postman Problem Travelling Salesman Problem Matching Sorting Algorithms Graph Theory I hope you enjoy these lessons, where they can be used in the following ways: To deliver a course with reduced planning but not reducing quality of the lesson, as this course can be time consuming writing and preparing examples, where this resource can help. As a basis for an observation lesson to save time preparing resources. To give to students for out of lesson learning. To support teachers who are new to this topic, again to reduce planning time.

#### Motivational Quotes!

I have hand chosen some of my favorite motivational quotes and hopefully what I see as some great pictures to go with them! This has taken me ages to put together, but please enjoy! I have loaded using Publisher, and PDF - so you can use the format that suits you best. The PowerPoint slide is a sample that will show up here on TES. If you want to make any changes, use the Publisher file - you will need to 'ungroup' each image first. Please rate and leave a comment!
