#### 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&amp;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. 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.

#### Classification of numbers

The presentation explains about different numbers like odd, even, prime, composite, perfect numbers, Fibonacci numbers and golden ratio. It also talks about finding patterns in nature.

#### 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 the Decision Mathematics module for A level. 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.

#### A Level EdExcel Decision Mathematics 1 - Notes and Worked Examples

This is a powerpoint covering all areas of Decision 1 (I realise they are only putting it in further maths from 2017). It contains brief notes by way of an explanation, model answers to questions and a question or two for the students to do; all of the questions come with answers that you can display when ready. The slide show comes with a progress grid (regularly referred to in the presentation) so that students can mark their progress from start to finish and pinpoint any areas that may need extra work with a “red/amber/green” system that they fill in. It’s what I use in my lessons before setting tasks from worksheets or text books to practice.

#### Decision 1 Edexcel End of Topic Tests

These are 20 mark test sets for each topic within the Decision 1 Edexcel Maths syllabus. Students write their solutions in the boxes provided. Any feedback would be very welcome. Enjoy! Em

#### SIMPLE AND COMPLEX PRINTABLE BATTLESHIP GAME FOR STUDENTS

Battleship is a classic game of strategy and logic kids of all ages love to play. Best of all, it is a great to play in your maths class as it teaches students how to use acartesian planeand understand how to use co-ordinates on a grid. I have made up two PDF versions of the classic battleship game you can download and print The first one is the traditional battleship game and the second one is the slightly more advanced 4 quadrant version of Battleship which is more suited to secondary students. &quot;You just sunk my Battleship!&quot; Enjoy
