High quality STEM resources for 7 to 18 year old learners and a number of key resources to support classroom and whole-school pedagogy. The resource "Metacogs" is a unique resource supported by the latest research. There is also extensive use of Blooms and SOLO taxonomy behind many of the resources. If you download any resource that could be improved then please leave specific feedback and I will endeavour to improve them further.

Mathematics of Cell Magnification

(23)
A resource to investigate the mathematics skills needed for calculating magnification of cells and objects. Also covers the idea of a formula. Engaging context and has a card sort for kinesthetic activities. If used please send me feedback.
Mathematics of Disease

Mathematics of Disease

(1)
You need a maths brain and knowledge of the 'disease spreading' practical. Needs a risk assessment doing. However, great fun to bring maths to life in this interesting context. Students spread a disease and then analyse the spread. Follow me on twitter for updates on latest resources: https://twitter.com/boostprogress
Mathematics of Perimeter I (Rectangles)

Mathematics of Perimeter I (Rectangles)

(3)
A L4 resource which goes with the Mathematics of Area resource. Good kinesthetic basis with lollipop sticks, ideal for the disengaged pupils. There is a link to a Maths Watch video and good differentiation throughout. Lacks te rich questioning but a sound basis for starting of the topic with L4 and L5 pupils. There is ample scope for enlarging the kinesthetic task and making it more problem based, less teacher-led. Follow me on twitter for updates on latest resources: https://twitter.com/boostprogress

This resource captures all the key knowledge for learners between 11 16 years of age. There are charts for students to complete and charts for teachers to complete for peer-assessment. In the UK the resource fits GCSE Core Science quite well. There are plenty of links to further research and a range of contextual exercises for students. All images used were from creative commons.

Mathematics of Measures I - Units and Lengths L4+

(0)
A couple of lessons introducing metric and imperial measures and their symbols. It then moves onto estimating and measuring lengths, before finishing with conversions between different measures of length (L5). Borrow fromthe scientists a set of 1m rulers to add a kinesthetic aspect to the measuring. You may even set a mini-competition for most accurate estimates. As always follow me @boostprogress and leave feedback and comments.

GCSE Core Science - Food and Health - Biology: Carbohydrates

(0)
GCSE Core Science - Food and Health - Carbohydrates This resource is one of four lessons and perfect for students of middle to lower abilities at targeting 'C' grades at the end of their course. The focus is on carbohydrates in foods and these resources support the basic glucose and starch testing of different foods (please remember to do your own risk assessment). There is a good components to develop key How Science Works skills and a link at the end to analyzing a familiar junk food. There are also some differentiated activities and tasks. If you have ideas for improving this resource then please let me know.

A2 Biology - Inheritance - 2 - Monohybrid Inheritance. This is the second lesson on the GCE A-level Biology series on 'Inheritance' and as the title suggested covers a monohybrid inheritance using familiar examples. Tasks are differentiated at A, C and E standards. All the familiar examples are covered including Mendelian pea characteristics and coat colour. If there are suggestions or amendments to improve this resource then please let me know.

Mathematics of Words V - Speed Formulae

(0)
This level 5+ resource can be delivered in maths or science and should take two to three hours to deliver. Ideally the speed section should be combined with some simple practical activity around falling objects (terminal speed) or cars down a slope. The worksheet is also useful for extension. There is an extension section at the end for L6 students to construct formula. Follow me on twitter for updates on latest resources: https://twitter.com/boostprogress

Graphology of Independent Variables

(0)
A great lesson for L4 - L7 or GCSE students in mathematics of science. The practical component can be done outside of a lab as well, as long as water is available. The focus is to explore types of independent variables and link them to appropriate graphing techniques. There are lots of opportunities to take the lesson in your own bespoke direction and I will shortly add a few more resources. If you are a mathematician then seek a scientist to get you started on this great cross-curricular opportunity! Of course any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

Separation Techniques - Aliens Blood

(0)
A series of 2 or 3 lessons that address separation techniques: filtration and paper chromatography. The filtration uses a mixture of sand, iron filings and water and for chromatography you need filter paper chromatography strip and a suitable colors of felt tip or highlighters. There are frames provided for students to record their learning on and a second copy for teachers to complete for peer-assessment. The lesson is ideal for learners between 8-14 years of age in science or classroom settings. Please also complete your own risk assessment, specifically around the solvent for chromatography: in my practical I used ethanol as it dissolves pigments in pens. Alternatively, you could try water for water-soluble pens and inks, if necessary. All images are obtained using creative commons licence or my own images.

Mathematics of Word IV - Expanding Brackets L5+

(0)
A resource for L5+ or grade C pupils. Requires Maths Watch videos. There is a linked lesson at L4+ in my resources if this is too demanding. Once again the basis for a lesson and does not contain the lesson plan or rich questioning resources. It should also be followed with some worded problems and contextual examples which I may add soon? Please add any suggestions to comments for improvements.

Mathematics of Words I - Algebraic Expressions

(0)
This is a lesson ained at Level 4+ students where students use scrabble tiles (cards) to become familiar with numerical values of letters and begin to work with expressions. Blooms sets the cognitive demands of the scrabble activity. Highly kinesthetic and helps early understanding. Later slides also cover solving simple expressions (using cards) and there are some extension questions from CIMT at the end. A lesson plan will follow but please suggest some activities in the comments that have worked with this resource. Follow me on twitter @boostprogress

This is one of our "Skills for Science" which supports 11-16 year olds with the development of softer skills of How Science Works. They are all focused around practical tasks and then focus on a area, such as planning experiments, experimental safety, data collection and mathematical analysis and evaluation. They are ideal for the new GCSE Science specifications in the UK and more general aspects of wider science education in the USA. All are high quality and well supported with images and relevant contexts.
