KS3 KS4 Physics Distance Speed Velocity/Time Graphs  Revision Bloodhound SSC Jet Car Run.

KS3 KS4 Physics Distance Speed Velocity/Time Graphs Revision Bloodhound SSC Jet Car Run.

An inspiring click and play lesson making distance/time graphs with real data from the Bloodhound SSC Land Speed Record Car. This activity is aimed at able KS3 or KS4. With a worksheet with interactive answers on a powerpoint including informative video clips of Bloodhound SSC; a jet and rocket car capable of 1000mph. Your young people can watch a clip from within the cockpit, then learn to analyse the run by plotting the actual run data. The BLOODHOUND Project is a global Engineering Adventure, using a 1,000mph World Land Speed Record attempt to inspire the next generation to enjoy, explore and get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. For more activities, videos, resources and information on workshops visit www.bloodhoundssc.com, or follow us on twitter: @Bloodhound_EDU. Updated 12th April, - Now with clearer graphs and an alternative, acceleration plenary.!..

KS3 Electronics Design and Technology: Bloodhound SSC: Electrical Systems of a 1000mph Car.

KS3 Electronics Design and Technology: Bloodhound SSC: Electrical Systems of a 1000mph Car.

2 min 26 video showing how we rig the Electronic System of Bloodhound SSC. The electronic systems are are the lifeblood of the car. In a state-of-the-art racing car with three engines, three braking systems and over 500 sensors, the electrical systems are key. Systems Technician Milton explains the wiring loom in the cockpit. The BLOODHOUND Project is not only about building a car to go 1,000mph, but it is also a perfect vehicle for education of STEM subjects. Over the life of this project we’ve been able to inspire over 2 million young people!

Football World Cup 2018 Problem Solving activity (Great to engage boys)

Football World Cup 2018 Problem Solving activity (Great to engage boys)

This is a great problem solving activity for groups to work through in small groups to plan the fixtures for the 2018 World Cup. It is great for engaging boys who maybe struggle to become integrated in group work and problem solving activities. When I used this in a class we spent 90 mins planning and the another hour in the computer lab producing a document and posters for the World Cup.

008 Problem-solving, geometry puzzle, G&T yr7

008 Problem-solving, geometry puzzle, G&T yr7

The problem of the dropped box of matches, pt 2 “Isabella Ringing dropped a box of matches, the box opened and the matches went everywhere. As she went to pick them up she knocked some of them into different positions. This gave her an idea for some puzzles to set for her friends.” A set of six matchstick puzzles to promote problem-solving skills - part 2 of 2. Suggested that it is used alongside ‘sticks’ of some sort so that kids can physcially explore the problem. We Solve Problems is a charity, founded by three PhD mathematicians, whose aim is to promote the use of advanced mathematics within secondary schools. We want to encourage creative mathematical thinking, to develop a skill within pupils for presenting their results clearly and coherently, as well as promoting personal problem-solving skills. Visit us at wesolveproblems. org. uk. We would very much appreciate it if you could take time to follow us, and hopefully review this resource as well, as this helps others to find us. Thank you.

Logic & problem-solving saves wise man

Logic & problem-solving saves wise man

An evil Emperor kidnapped the wisest man in the kingdom and said he was to be put to death. His family pleaded for his life, so the Emperor decided to have some evil fun and give the wise man a chance. The wise man is given 12 pills; 11 are poison and one is safe. The pills are identical except the safe one has a slightly differently weight. He is also given a balance on which he can weigh them. He can only make 3 weighings then he has to take one of the pills. Designed for G&T years 9/10 this calls on all their logic and problem-solving skills. Ideally placed for collaborative working, where trial-and-error tests their ability to be wrong and yet try again. From a teaching perspective this is a real, practical, maths task, where the use of props such as Smarties or Tic-Tacs makes it more realistic than the static pencil and paper - or if you have access to some sort of ‘pod’, like those inside Kinder eggs, it’s very simple to make one slightly heavier than the rest to really bring it to life.

Turing Tumbler

Turing Tumbler

These brand new devices allow the teaching of what happens inside a computer and shows all the basic commands, addition, multiplication etc. There is also a puzzle book that encourages students to solve the problems using pure logic. These devices will be supplied by myself via the USA site and should cost approx £60, this will however engage pupils in the mechanics of problem solving and coding. Please contact me if you need further information. Dave
