Core 3 Numerical Methods Team Quiz

Core 3 Numerical Methods Team Quiz

Based on Edexcel Core 3 Exam Questions on numerical methods - a useful revision resource. I run this as a team challenge, with each team selecting a question from each category and then ALL groups having a set time (between 3 and 5 mins) to complete the question (whiteboards and markers are great here). If the team that selected the question gets it right then they win the points allocated for that question, if not then the other teams have the opportunity to STEAL those points. My Year 12 students today really enjoyed this and have requested the powerpoint to use as revision at home!

Extension - Investigating Infinity

Extension - Investigating Infinity

Nine provocative questions to get pupils thinking about infinity. Each one has footnotes on the Powerpoint to guide towards the answer. What are Zeno’s paradoxes? Is 0.9999999999999999999… the same as 1? What is the smallest decimal number more than 3? What is infinity plus one? What is Hilbert’s Hotel? If something is true for the first million numbers, is it true for all the numbers? What is 1 – 1 + 1 – 1 + 1 – 1 … equal to? Are some infinities bigger than others? Are there more: numbers, fractions, or decimals?

Geometry: Radians 2 - Arcs, Sectors and Segments (+ resources)

Geometry: Radians 2 - Arcs, Sectors and Segments (+ resources)

This whole lesson builds on the introduction to the topic of radians. It looks at where the different formulas come from in radians and how to use them with some excellent examples and teaching slides. It comes also with a great starter, plenary, lesson objectives and key words. I have also included some exam questions with answers, a handout of useful angles to remember and a help sheet on mark scheme jargon to help build pupils understanding of exam papers. I recommend buying this with the first lesson as they fit together to teach pupils everything needed for AS level maths. NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.

Numerical Methods for solving 1st order differential equations

Numerical Methods for solving 1st order differential equations

A presentation leading through the Euler method, improved Euler method and Taylor series method for solving first order differential equations. The presentation goes through one example using each of the three methods. The first steps are explained in detail with animations to help understanding. There is then a blank Excel table to enable you to demonstrate to the class how you could do it using a computer. Simply click the spreadsheet during slideshow view and the excel document will open up ready to be edited. The second presentation is exactly the same but with the formula filled in.

Team Revision Tasks - Core 3 (Edexcel)

Team Revision Tasks - Core 3 (Edexcel)

These are an attempt to break from the monotony of past papers in the run up to exam season. I have taken 2 or 4 (depending on whether they will fit on a page!) questions from past papers and put them on one sheet; I will photocopy onto A3 for students to have a go in groups and discuss. The aims/rules etc are all listed if you wish to follow them and hopefully they all make sense. I have also provided answers.
