#### Unconstrained Optimization

Unconstrained Optimization is one of the topic which is covered during Mathematics lectures and seminars in order to enhance students knowledge. During this Lecture and Seminar we are covering following subtopics (Agenda): •Intervals of increase and decrease •Concavity and convexity •Critical and stationary points •Optimization of economic functions In this File you will find: - 1 Unconstrained Optimization Lecture Power Point Presentation 28 Slides - 1 Seminar Plan - 19 Seminar Activities with full answer list for students All covered materials are taught for bachelor level students Level 3. Please write your comments once you purchase this lesson in order to have some suggestions for further improvements of teaching materials.

#### Decision 1 Revision Resources

A selection of D1 revision resources for the AQA A-Level Spec. These resources include revision sheets and posters with fill in the gaps to help student remember the information. These sheets cover the sorting algorithms, definitions for D1 and other algorithms.

#### Edexcel AS Further Decision Mathematics 1

A series of lesson sheets that take you through the whole of the Edexcel AS Further Decision Maths 1 course. They are intended to be used in the order they are numbered. When used in conjunction with exercises on the topics these deliver the entire content of the course.

#### Resources to teach, practise and revise sorting and packing algorithms (D1)

These resources save a lot time as they have ready-made examples you can project onto a board and students can work on the printable worksheets which saves them copying down questions and makes lesson time more productive. The resources cover bubble sort, shuttle sort and the first-fit algorithm. There are also resources which explain how to measure and compare the efficiency and order of algorithms. All answers are included to the exercises and revision material. Note that these resources were created for the OCR D1 module (4736) but would be useful resources for anyone teaching the algorithms mentioned.

#### Revision material for sorting and packing algorithms (Decision maths D1 - OCR 4736)

These resources are a great way for your students to revise the key points they need to remember and understand about bubble sort, shuttle sort and the first-fit algorithms. The multiple choice questions are a quick way to check/revise the key knowledge, or this could be used as a quick assessment (answers provided) The sorting and packing practice worksheet has 2 pages of examination-style questions for students to attempt (worked answers included). The final resource is a 4-page document starting with all the required knowledge and skills listed on the first page, followed by 2 pages of examination-style questions (worked answers provided).

#### Resources on comparing the efficiency and order of algorithms (Decision maths D1 - OCR 4736)

These resources can be used to introduce how the efficiency of algorithms can be compared and measured. In the first worksheet there is an example comparing bubble sort and shuttle sort, an example finding the order of an algorithm and then some examples using the order of an algorithm to estimate the time it will take to solve a problem of a particular size (fully-worked solutions are provided). In the second worksheet there are 12 exam-style questions on using the order of an algorithm to estimate the time it will take to solve a problem of a particular size. There is also the excel spreadsheet I created to generate examples - this can used to make as many more examples as you want.

#### Resources to teach and practise first-fit algorithm (Decision maths D1 - OCR 4736)

After a few years of teaching packing algorithms by creating and working through examples on the board I got sick of it and created these resources. They make it easy to introduce, work through some examples and then there is another worksheet full of examples for students to attempt where the fully-worked solutions are already done, making it easy to check. The printable worksheets mean that students don't need to copy down lists of numbers or create tables to work on - this means they can spend the time just practising using the algorithm. There is also the excel spreadsheet I created to generate examples - this can used to make as many more examples as you want (instructions are on the spreadsheet).

#### Dijkstra and A* Algorithm Spreadsheets. Example and step by step explanation

Couple of spreadsheets to aid teaching of Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm and A* algorithm. Example and step by step explanation included. Tried to make it as self explanatory as possible so can be given straight to the pupils whilst you explain it etc.

#### Cross-Curricular Election Maths: Voting Systems

Ideal for use in election years, particularly when things happen like Trump becoming president, despite not winning the popular vote. This is a differentiated lesson looking at the use of different voting systems, their advantages and disadvantages. In this lesson, students will: - Look at the mechanics of different voting systems including: First past the post, alternative voting, BORDA count, weighted BORDA count and a two-round system. - Try out the voting systems to see who would win in a hypothetical situation - Think about how they would vote tactically in each voting system to block someone from getting in - Consider the advantages/disadvantages of each. - Reflect on their learning To really 'show' that there is no perfect system, the votes have been designed so that using each voting system produces a different winner!
