Great Graphs: Animated Teaching Tool

Great Graphs: Animated Teaching Tool

This is a series of animated flash movies for students to use on a computer, to go through as homework, or for you to use on an IWB as an exposition teaching tool. I designed it to address the big issues students have with drawing axes (using sensible scales, marking off axes, identifying where the dependent variables should go etc), plotting points correctly and drawing lines of best fit. Great Graphs 1 - Drawing axes Great Graphs 2 - Plotting Points Great Graphs 3 - Lines of best fit (work in progress). Suitable for KS3, KS4 and Post 16 classes.

Planning Investigation Board or Booklet

Planning Investigation Board or Booklet

A resource to help plan scientific investigations which can be adapted in format to either a Planning Board or Booklet. My Y5 pupils used it very enthusiastically and successfully to greatly improve their concept of a whole science investigation and is suitable for KS2 and above. Can also be used to assess pupils’ understanding of the investigation. Please give feedback. Thanks!
