#### Decision Maths

Presentations that cover the majority of A level decision maths units

#### 'Class win or fail' revision game. Suitable for everything!!

Hi,This is a creative and engaging game. There are 15 timed questions - they are all linked to the main slide. The purpose - if the class get 12 or more correct, they win the reward. If they get less than 12, they get the punishment!Be careful - each questions has a countdown timer!This is adaptable to any subject, for any age by simply over-typing the questions. This is the easiest and most engaging way to have a revision quiz!!EnjoyCopyright M Willetts

#### 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 MatchingsIncludes all worksheets, answers and assessments

#### Flow augmentation algorithm

A large presentation that shows the learners how to complete the flow algorithm. It includes flows, cuts, maximum and minimum flows and also restricted vertices. Also is 2 examples of minimax and maximin problemsSMART 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.

#### Hungarian Algorithm for allocation

Presentation that shows learners how to preform the Hungarian algorithm. It covers the full algorithm and also looks at max/min problems and dummy rows.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.

#### Bubble Sort Algorithm

Powerpoint that is used to show learners how to complete the bubble sort algorithm.

#### 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.

#### Mathematics Decision 1 Lessons

This is a set of lessons for Decision Mathematics. The resources include Powerpoints and worksheets. Powerpoint include:Learning objectivesExamples animated at each step to support explanations and independent learningImportant information written in red boxes to scaffold learning.Worksheets include examples on a word document for students to write on.Topics:Spanning TreesLinear ProgrammingDijkstra’s AlgorithmChinese Postman ProblemTravelling Salesman ProblemMatchingSortingAlgorithmsGraph 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.

#### 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 printThe 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
