This is a good resource to help learners link the ratio and proportion concepts in real life situations… It can be given as a homework to help learners reflect on their learning and to reveal any misconceptions they might have. It is good to be used to assess each learner’s understanding of the topic. It can also be used as a main/ plenary activity where learners work on their own or with others (peer assessment)….. It can be adapted at different levels to suit and to challenge learners at all levels.

#### C2 Binomial Expansion - revision activity (Edexcel)

This was an activity I prepared for my year 12 maths group. This smartboard presentation contains a series of expansions taken from previous past papers. They start off by categorising the expansions into different groups of their choosing, they discuss this in pairs (it may well be something as simple as there is a '1' inside the bracket). Feedback moment. Then continue deciding which formula they wish to use for each category...I should have saved this one for an observation moment! They worked on mini-whiteboards and I took photos of their work and send it via email. Very productive lesson. Enjoy and please rate this resource!

#### Maths Manipulatives : Unitary Conversions

How many chains are in 3km ?<br />
<br />
Unitary conversion is a method of converting different quantities by laying out cards with unit and corresponding conversions , top to bottom, so that they can be cancelled as in multiplying fractions. <br />
<br />
This secured PDF eBook contains 160 unitary conversions that can be printed back to back using Avery C32070 business card printer labels - height 5.4 cm, width 8.5 cm, paper 21cm x 29.69 cm - or just printed out back to back on sheets of A4 paper , laminated and cut up. They can then be used physically as a manipulative to aid learning about conversion and the importance of units. A list of the measures used is given in the preview. Once mastered, the technique becomes assimilated as another maths tool that can be used mentally and the student dispenses with the cards, returning them to be re-used by another year group.Purchase once, print out as many sets as required.<br />
<br />
The cards cover measures of length, mass, volume and time and are ideal for practising conversions, multiplying fractions, standard form and increasing general knowledge. Depth is given through the use of metric and non-metric measures and the resource can also be used as part of project work to investigate historic measures.<br />
<br />
Please look at the preview for the answer to the question posed at the top of the page or view the unitary conversions page at http://www.scruffs.shetland.co.uk/files/unitary.html for answers to the the following :<br />
<br />
How many seconds are there in 5 days ?<br />
How fast is 50 km/h in m/s ?<br />
What is the speed of light in metres per second ?<br />
What is the distance travelled by light in one year ?<br />
How long does it take to travel to Alpha Centuri , a distance of 4.1 light years, if travelling at 100 km/h ?<br />
<br />
Please note : this resource does not contain any questions .
