Maths Zone - Mathematical Reasoning for ages 9+ years

Maths Zone - Mathematical Reasoning for ages 9+ years

The Maths Zone series is designed to add some fun to the traditional strands of the mathematics curriculum by presenting challenging activities and humorous problems to students in a meaningful context. The worksheets are a mix of traditional algorithms and puzzle sheets and are completely original in nature, offering the novelty of a new approach. Classroom teachers and remedial teachers will find this book to be a valuable mathematical resource. Activities can be used as early finisher tasks, whole class lessons, practice and consolidation tasks or as small group challenges. All activities are linked to relevant mathematics outcomes. Mathematical Reasoning contains sections covering logical reasoning, equations, Venn diagrams and other problem solving strategies. Also included are challenging games and activities that explore a variety of mathematical concepts that are based on versions of popular everyday games such as Dominoes, Bingo and calculator activities. This is a Photocopy Master ebook (56 pages) and activity pages may be photocopied for use in the classroom. Our ebooks are in pdf format. Edubooks is an imprint of Ready-Ed Publications.

D1/ D2 - Travelling Salesperson game

D1/ D2 - Travelling Salesperson game

A Powerpoint game that can be used to help engage students in D1 and D2. Although it is made with the travelling salesperson algorithm in mind, it can also be used for Kruskal's, Prim's on a distance matrix and the nearest neighbour algorithm.

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 Matchings Includes all worksheets, answers and assessments

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!

Mathematics Decision 1 Lessons

Mathematics Decision 1 Lessons

This is a set of lessons for Decision Mathematics. The resources include Powerpoints and worksheets. Powerpoint include: Learning objectives Examples animated at each step to support explanations and independent learning Important information written in red boxes to scaffold learning. Worksheets include examples on a word document for students to write on. Topics: Spanning Trees Linear Programming Dijkstra’s Algorithm Chinese Postman Problem Travelling Salesman Problem Matching Sorting Algorithms Graph 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.
