Parametric's : Tangents & Normals

Parametric's : Tangents & Normals

This lesson draws together two earlier lessons. One on Tangents and normals to a curve. The second on Parametric Differentiation. The lesson consists of a few worked examples.

A level maths revision, C4 integration, volumes of revolution

A level maths revision, C4 integration, volumes of revolution

Four challenging exam-like questions with fully worked out solutions for A level and IB students who want to test their knowledge of volumes of revolution (C4 Integration). In each question, a solid of revolution has to be subtracted from or added to the integral. The curve in one question is described by parametric equations. Another question uses trigonometric functions. The problem of finding the radius and height of cone/cylinder, is addressed in the solutions.

QR Code Defuse The Bomb Activities - Core 3 and 4

QR Code Defuse The Bomb Activities - Core 3 and 4

I use these as a break from the "past paper drudgery" in the run up to exams. The questions are taken from past papers (amended in some cases). The idea is to answer each question fully then scan the QR code linked to the correct answer to form a code. Each QR code (correct or incorrect to avoid "cheating") scans to a song or artist that contains a number or colour, so this generates the code.

Parametric Equations Topic Mat

Parametric Equations Topic Mat

A mat to summarise key concepts from the C4 topic Parametric Equations (Edexcel). I also include a suggestion for how the mat could be filled out. I usually use it as a plenary – ask the pupils for the key ideas from the lesson and collectively fill in sections over a sequence of lessons. At the end of a topic they have a topic mat from which to revise from. I also photocopy them on different coloured paper so they act as dividers in students’ folders. I am creating these resources as part of an action research project at my school looking at preparation for improving students retention across a two year linear course and trying to bring the science of memory into the classroom. If you have used these resources and have any comments/feedback/ideas please comment or contact me - thanks!

Implicit and Parametric functions

Implicit and Parametric functions

A pair of presentations that explain what Implicit and Parametric functions are and how you can differentiate them. Presentations have detailed explanations and clear worked examples of exam style questions. SMART Notebook Express presentations can be used for free by using SMART online or by downloading SMART software, also free, I use it because it allows a more interactive presentation than a powerpoint. Just search 'SMART Notebook Express' and try it with my free SMART resource.
