πŸ• Algebra as Shapes πŸ• Conceptual understanding of expressions

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. 🌟😊🌟 . . .

β˜…β˜…β˜… Expansion, Factorisation & Algebraic Area Investigation β˜…β˜…β˜…

Carefully designed to develop a conceptual understanding of algebraic expansion and factorisation. Firstly it encourages students think carefully about how multiplication works, making links between the "grid method" and the area of rectangles. This leads into a connected understanding of how algebraic expansion and factorisation works with particular regard to algebraic area.

🌌 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).

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

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

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 . . . 🌟😊🌟
