Minimum connector and travelling salesperson algorithms

Minimum connector and travelling salesperson algorithms

Powerpoints and Notebook presentations that show learners how to complete the minimum connector problems using Prims and Kruskals algorithm. A presentation of how to use Travelling salesperson algorithm to find a complete cycle.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.

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.

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!

Chinese postman/route inspection tutorial+question

Chinese postman/route inspection tutorial+question

I am creating a website at www.mrhegartymaths.com where I upload videos to help students with their GCSE and A-Level exam revision. My videos are a mixture of exam solutions and topics taught from first principles. I am currently updating as required for the pupils I teach but over time I want to create a comprehensive collection of tutorials on the key GCSE and A-Level topics as well as occasional sets of solutions to exam past papers.
