The Powerpoint shows how to use the minimum spanning tree method to find a lower bound for the Travelling Salesman Problem. There is a video showing its use available at the address below: https://youtu.be/VcugXirtWOo
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.
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.

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

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.
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
This document provides a glossary for Decision Maths algorithms and ideas, with links to YouTube videos demonstrating how to perform those algorithms.
A one page sheet showing all of the circle theorems clearly to aid revision. For KS4.
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.
A brief 2-slide powerpoint illustrating the order of algorithms. For use in Decision Maths.
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.
