#### Large Data Set Quiz - Edexcel A Level Maths

This is a quiz, split into three rounds, on the Large Data Set from Edexcel for the A Level Mathematics course.
The 3 rounds are:
• Round 1 = Locations.
Questions ensure that students know which locations are covered by the large data set and where these locations are found.
• Round 2 = Variables.
Which variables are given for each of the different locations?
• Round 3 = Units and Data
Which units are used for each of the variables and some specific questions on some anomalies in the weather or data?
The quiz is presented in a variety of formats to allow for different methods of delivery to a class:
• Just The Questions
Suitable for administering the quiz in a test format. One file has all rounds in it, and there are three separate files for individual rounds.
• PowerPoints
Two versions of each round have been provided. One where each question is given followed immediately by the answer, and one where all answers are saved until the end of the PowerPoint.
• Answer Sheets
These can be used alongside the PowerPoints, or if the test is being delivered orally.
• Questions And Answers
All questions and answers provided together, either on multiple sheets, or all on one sheet.

#### Growth Mindset Display - learning a new skill. (Can be adapted to any subject)

This flowchart display can either be printed out as a single sheet poster, or as individual components of the flowchart to be stuck to the wall. Both types are included in the resource file. It shows the methodology behind learning and acquiring a new skill. Whilst the flowchart is written for Mathematics, it can easily be adapted to any subject.

#### The Greek Alphabet - large

Upper and lower case forms for all letters of the Greek alphabet, with their names. I find this useful to have up in Maths classrooms, but obviously can be used for languages or any other suitable subject. This is scaled to fit with two letters per A4 page and is 12 pages in length.

#### Incorrect Mathematical Proofs Posters

This is a collection of three posters, each containing an incorrect conclusion from a seemingly correct proof. I have used them as good starter activities with classes to get them thinking about how they prove concepts and how to find errors. The proofs included show that 1=2, 3=0 and 1+2+3+4+…=-1/12.

#### Front Side Plan View activity, with answers

A simple activity where the student is presented with the front side and plan elevations of a block-based shape, which they must create. This has proved to be quite challenging for many students and some of the shapes are demanding for even the most able.

#### Further Pure Mathematics Vectors - pdf

A revision guide with each rule, expression and formula for Vectors. Originally developed for Further Pure 3 unit.

#### Kruskal's Algorithm PowerPoint

A presentation showing how to use Kruskal’s Algorithm. A video demonstrating the use of the presentation can be found at the address below:

Bundle

#### Travelling Salesman Problem Bounds PowerPoints Bundle

A collection of all three powerpoints for finding bounds on the Travelling Salesman problem, as used in the Further Maths A Level course. Videos of their use are available on each individual resource page.

#### Maths quotes and inspirational posters

This is a collection of 15 posters containing quotes from a variety of mathematicians and other notable people, concerning Mathematics and inspirational things to think about success and failure. A useful addition to any classroom.

#### The Greek Alphabet - small

Upper and lower case forms for all letters of the Greek alphabet, with their names. I find this useful to have up in Maths classrooms, but obviously can be used for languages or any other suitable subject. This is scaled to fit on three A4 sheets.

#### Surprising Maths Results Posters

This file is a collection of posters to be printed out and displayed in your room or around the Maths department. There are 32 posters, each being half an A4 sheet, with examples shown in the cover image photo. The posters cover a wide range of topics with suitable ideas for KS3, 4 and 5. There are numbers at the top of each poster, intended to encourage students to seek out others that they have not seen - we put 5 or so non-sequential posters in each teaching room.

#### Small Angle Approximations for Trigonometry

A spreadsheet that allows you to select the trigonometric function that you need (cell F1), and then a graph is automatically generated to show you the value of theta compared to the trig approximation, also calculating % error

#### Decision Maths Algorithms, Glossaries and Video Links

This document provides a glossary for Decision Maths algorithms and ideas, with links to YouTube videos demonstrating how to perform those algorithms.

#### Circle Theorem Revision Sheet - Word version

A one page sheet showing all of the circle theorems clearly to aid revision. For KS4.

#### Trapezium Rule calculation spreadsheet

A simple to use spreadsheet that will calculate all values and the total area for two specific quadratic equations, using the Trapezium Rule, for up to 254 strips.

#### The Order of an Algorithm

A brief 2-slide powerpoint illustrating the order of algorithms. For use in Decision Maths.

#### Decision Maths 1 Algorithms Videos

This sheet gives links to videos on all 14 of the algorithms that are required for the Edexcel Decision Maths 1 module. Each video gives a demonstration of an individual algorithm, and can be shared with students as a revision resource or used as part of a teaching lesson. Each video can obviously be paused whilst the students work out what is coming next, or rewound to hear an explanation again.
The algorithms are:
Full Bin, First Fit, First Fit Decreasing, Bubble Sort, Quick Sort, Binary Search, Kruskal's, Prim's, Prim's - Matrix Method, Dijkstra's, Route Inspection, Maximum Matching, Finding Critical Paths and the Scheduling Procedure.
