Decision 1 - All lessons and resources for all chapters

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

Chinese Postman Algorithm Presentation

Chinese Postman Algorithm Presentation

Powerpoint and Notebook presentations that show students how to complete the Chinese postman algorithm. Smartboard presentation covers basic graph theory such as Eulerian graphs and other terminologySMART 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.

A Level EdExcel Decision Mathematics 1 - Notes and Worked Examples

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.

Decision Mathematics AS Level (Edexcel) Posters - Graph Definitions

Decision Mathematics AS Level (Edexcel) Posters - Graph Definitions

A large proportion of students are visual learners, this means bright colours, bold diagrams, and image repetition will help when studying. Enclosed are posters for Edexcel AS Mathematics (Decision Branch), with cross-connections with most other boardsThe posters are A4 documents, split into 4 boxes with bold colourful information in each. They are well used scattered around a room or the house, so constant viewing of the posters will help you remember the information that in on them. This is a technique that I have passed on to help many students through GCSE and A level.The topic of this set is Graph Definitions. The posters give definitions for different types of graphs and othe descriptors surrounding this topic within the Decision Mathematics course. 2 Posters included as separate files.

KS3/KS4/KS5 Maths (enrichment): Investigating graph theory and networks lesson

KS3/KS4/KS5 Maths (enrichment): Investigating graph theory and networks lesson

Full lesson on investigating graph theory and networks which is extremely derivative -- very largely based on the stupendous lesson and worksheet uploaded by @Owen134866. I have added some more scaffolding in terms of discussing vocabulary and created a support sheet so that this topic can be accessed at KS3 and above.I have delivered this lesson successfully to mixed ability Year 7s and high ability Year 9s to date, and always really enjoy it. It's generally something I pull out towards the end of term as a treat with a view to improving students' problem-solving skills.Extension worksheet is adapted from the Konigsberg problem entry on Wikipedia although I have not yet used it -- it might prove to be a good extension to the main lesson for A Level students.Please do rate and review this resource -- I appreciate feedback!

Minimum Connectors (Prim's and Kruskal's algorithms)

Minimum Connectors (Prim's and Kruskal's algorithms)

A sorting task suitable for students studying Decision 1. Cut out the networks and statements and sort them into a large copy of the table (I used magic whiteboard sheets on the desk). Ensure students can justify their solutions - get them to swap partners and explain their choices. Multiple solutions are possible!

Can Santa complete Christmas?

Can Santa complete Christmas?

Functional type activity involving distances and times. Santa has to deliver the presents to places in Cornwall. Students are given distance charts and times to travel and are asked to plot shortest and quickest route. There is an extra challenge of a load limit for Santa's sleigh. Have included distance table, time table and three maps; one blank and the other two completed with times and mileage. All resources are in one word file and accompanied with a powerpoint.Thanks to Claire Richards and Tony Robson for their help.
