GCSE Data Handling lesson or revision notes (PPT)

(0)
A 22 slide PowerPoint that situates charts/graphs in the data handling cycle. It covers collecting, presenting, sorting and analysing data along with bar charts, line graphs, pie charts, decision tree diagrams, two-way tables, flow charts, Venn diagrams, stem & leaf diagrams and scatter graphs. There is at least a weeks material for GCSE lessons and will be useful for revision classes or an overview of the concepts involved. So, far instance, much greater depth would be required for averages. Please review it if you download it and do put it to good use. The PowerPoint allows the teacher to introduce the key ideas to students via animated slides. Most of the ideas are easier to access through animation and slow reveal.

Building mathematical concepts with Cuisenaire rods (PPT)

(0)
A 22 slide PowerPoint showing some really important maths concepts in concrete form and which pupils should be aware of. Cuisenaire rods are the main focus but enhanced with the counting stick to produce a powerful arsenal for additive reasoning. It covers equivalence, inequalities, decimals, factors, primes, composites, fractions, squares and algebra. There is at least a weeks material for all ages at primary school and applicable to secondary students who have gaps in their understanding. Please review it if you download it and do put it to good use. The PowerPoint allows the teacher to introduce the key ideas to students via extensive use of animation. Most of the ideas are easier to access through animation and slow reveal.

Multiplication for teenagers who don't know all their times tables (PPT)

(0)
A 33 slide PowerPoint showing an approach to multiplication for teenage students who have not rote learned them. It combines the Operational Principles with the area model of multiplication to empower students to apply a small number of tables to calculations (x1, x2, x3, x5 and x10). It also covers the area model of division and mental strategies for multiplication and division. It is aimed at Maths Dept CPD rather than for school students. It is pedagogical for Maths Teachers although some slides would be useful for teaching. Years of experience of training Maths teachers, research and thinking has gone into this resource.
