Quotes about maths for wall displays. Posters.

A powerpoint with quotes about maths in speeech bubbles. Print on colour paper, cut out (laminated looks even better!). Use to liven up a dull display or fill a small gap. Also useful for hiding small bits of grafitti and unidentified sticky marks rather than replace a whole display. Job done!

Exploring linear equations

Exploring linear equations

Interactive excel worksheets to demonstrate properties of linear equations and graphs. Includes graphing simple linear equations and solving linear simultaneous equations. Suitable for KS3, GCSE and AS levels. Microsoft Excel is spreadsheet software, designed to manipulate and view numerical data such as statistics. You will need to allow macros to run when using most of the sheets available here. This can be checked by opening Excel and clicking Tools Macros Security and choosing Medium or Low security. Also, some sheets require you have Analysis ToolPak installed - this is found by clicking Tools Add ins (you may need the original MS Office disks to do this).

GSCE Maths: Using probability computer games

GSCE Maths: Using probability computer games

Activities to enable learners of secondary mathematics to overcome common misconceptions about probability, use diagrams to count equally likely outcomes and calculate probabilities of dependent and independent events. This is part of the 'Mostly statistics' set of materials from Standards unit: Improving learning in mathematics.

Autograph Team - Scatter Diagrams - KS4

Autograph Team - Scatter Diagrams - KS4

A video tutorial from the Autograph team to teach Scatter Diagrams at KS4. It is possible to import a bivariate data set into Autograph but in this activity we are going to see how to create a dataset from points and we will then use that dataset to demonstrate least squared regression.Clicking on the web-link below takes you to all the videos in this series.

Maths GSCE: Line of Best Fit, Autograph Video

Maths GSCE: Line of Best Fit, Autograph Video

The 29th in Mr Barton's Autograph Video tutorial series. Following on from our work on Scatter Diagrams, we take a look at how the Line of Best Fit is calculated. This provides a valuable link from Key Stage 4 maths to A Level Statistics as Autograph is able to clearly demonstrate the method for finding the least squares regression line. Below the video you will find an option to download it and play it on a larger screen, or by clicking on the web-link you can see all the videos in this series.

Maths: Data, Statistics - Gapminder- video

Maths: Data, Statistics - Gapminder- video

The 1st in Mr Barton's Gapminder World Video series. This is an introduction which takes you through how to access the Gapminder World website and how to use some of the basic tools, such as how to select different variables, highlight specific countries, and track changes through time. Below the video you will find an option to download it and play it on a larger screen, or by clicking on the web-link you can see all the videos in this series

Autograph Video 37 - Extras - Dice Simulation

Autograph Video 37 - Extras - Dice Simulation

The 37th in Mr Barton's Autograph Video tutorial series. This week we take a look at one of the excellent Autograph Extras pages. The Dice Simulation page is fantastic for allowing your students to explore the concepts of experimental probability, sample sizes and distributions. Below the video you will find an option to download it and play it on a larger screen, or by clicking on the web-link you can see all the videos in this series.

Gapminder Video 11 - Gapminder and Autograph

Gapminder Video 11 - Gapminder and Autograph

The 11th in Mr Barton's Gapminder World Video series. In this video, we fuse together two of my favourite things - Gapminder World and Autograph. We see how we can process the data from Gapminder using Autograph's powerful statistical engine in order to anyalse the strength of correlation. More statistical diagrams next week!

Autograph Video 40 - Biased Dice & Balls in a Bag

Autograph Video 40 - Biased Dice & Balls in a Bag

A video tutorial covering biased dice and probability. Ideal for KS3, GCSE and A Level maths. The 40th in Mr Barton's Autograph Video tutorial series. This week we take a look at how Autograph can be used to introduce students to the concept of experimental probability. You can very quickly set up a probability distribution function of your choice (fair dice, biased dice, numbered balls in a bag, you name it!), take samples of varying sizes, and create diagrams from the data.

Tuning and Ratio - Investigation for Post 16

Tuning and Ratio - Investigation for Post 16

In this activity students investigate logarithms and Pythagoras Theorem. It is an interactive activity ideal for A Level students. Why is the modern piano tuned using an equal tempered scale and what has this got to do with logarithms?
