Ϟ History of Irrational Numbers Ϟ Engaging Starter for Roots, Surds or Trial & Improvement

(0)
The story of Pythagoras and Hippasus and the discovery of irrational numbers. Please read the PowerPoint slide notes to understand what each slide is about. An engaging and perhaps slightly elaborated historical tale! Suitable for any level. Discussions regarding the infinite number of permutations of numbers within irrational numbers can be truly mind-blowing! Imagine if every two digits was used to encode a letter of the alphabet... What stories would be hidden within?! 🌟😊🌟 . . PLEASE RATE THIS RESOURCE . . 🌟😊🌟

Carefully-designed to develop a deep understanding of substitution without having to pre-teach any fixed methods. For the best result print in colour on two sheets of A4 and laminate them together back to back. The reverse side can then be filled in with a board marker which the students really enjoy. Colourful, engaging and encourages critical thinking. One of my favourite resources. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 🌟🌟🌟 . . 😊 . .

Five colourful and engaging questions on individual sheets designed to be laminated and worked on in groups. The questions encourage the use of critical thinking through trial & improvement although they could be investigated algebraically for high-ability groups or extension work. 🌟😊🌟 . . .

A challenging, engaging, creative & competitive card game combining Pokémon & substitution. Students create their own cards and compete under surprise "weather conditions" based on increasingly challenging algebraic expressions. This activity forces students to think deeply about the fundamentals of mathematical processes in order to create the best set of cards. Your students won't forget this lesson! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 🌟🌟🌟 . . 😊 . . PLEASE RATE THIS RESOURCE . . 😊 . . 🌟🌟🌟. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

A worksheet based on the TakTile concept: using shapes to represent algebraic variables. This really makes students think about algebra in a different way and can help visual/kinaesthetic learners get their heads around algebra. A resource/concept that can be extended indefinitely. Designed to be printed as a two-sided colourful A4 laminate and includes large versions of the shapes to be printed on card or laminated for kinaesthetic representation and manipulation. 🌟😊🌟 . . .

🌌 8 Amazing Circle Posters 🌌 Planets, Atoms, Engines and more!

8 engaging and fascinating posters about real-life circles and spheres. When designing these posters I thought of the stereotypical maths poster (full of words, numbers & boring diagrams) and made the exact opposite. Students actually look at and ask questions about these posters! High quality images for printing as large wall displays (7200 x 6000 px JPEG format). Contact me for the original PSD/TIF files. 🌟😊🌟 . . . PLEASE RATE THIS RESOURCE . . . 🌟😊🌟

Dinosaurs, planetary orbits, megagons and space diagonals, this trigonometry resource pack has it all! Not to mention a few trigonometry tests with some plain old triangles thrown in for good measure, solutions included. Some resources for practising basic trigonometry with gradually increasing difficulty, and some exceptionally challenging questions that will make even the smartest maths teachers have to think too! Some resources for outdoor trigonometry may have to be adapted for your school grounds. 🌟😊🌟 . . . PLEASE RATE THIS RESOURCE . . . 🌟😊🌟

πŸ–© Trigonometry πŸ–© Calculator Brain Method πŸ–©

(0)
An extremely different approach to teaching trigonometry that allows high-ability students to truly understand what the sine function is doing. This tried-and-tested guide shows students how to scale up and down right-angled triangles produced by a unit circle in order to solve any trigonometry problem. This is for students and teachers who don't just want to memorise SOHCAHTOA but really want a deeper understanding of trigonometry. Anyone who has had to apply trigonometry in real-life situations such as engineering or computer game design will know that SOHCAHTOA is not appropriate for our high-ability students. This method is advocated by MEI lecturer Tomi Owens, among others. Not only does it develop a deeper understanding of trigonometry but it allows students to practise Pythagoras and complex enlargements. Be warned, this method may only be suitable for the most able of students. 🌟😊🌟 . . . PLEASE RATE THIS RESOURCE . . . 🌟😊🌟
