IF YOU DOWNLOAD THIS PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT / REVIEW. I SHARE MY RESOURCES ITS ALL I ASK word memory starter or plenary, can be tailored to any specific area and also some key word presentation slides, that is designed as a fun test, but again can be changed. Was used for Chinese students but a good way of checking retained terminology
Business functions, department and duties

Business functions, department and duties

(67)
IF YOU DOWNLOAD THIS PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT / REVIEW. An interactive presentation on the different business functions that organisations have. This includes 3 videos on sales, production and human resources and both a teacher and student copy of the presentation. There is also a few work sheets and a presentation to run through the answers of the mix and match plenary. It is a basic class this but effective I have found. I can’t upload the videos to here, so I’ll chuck them on Youtube and post a word document with the links to the videos on there. Hope it saves you some time. Pat
Trading Game

Trading Game

(48)
Presentation and the rules to one of the most enjoyable classes I have come across, students will have to make shapes to exchange these shapes for money, mirroring production of goods from raw materials in the real world. Each team represents a country, it will enable students to learn about the WTO and the IMF through kinaesthetic learning styles. I would recommend buying some fake money to do this game, monopoly set should suffice.

Intellectual Property (Copyright, Patents and Trademarks)

A stand alone lesson designed for AS business studies covering the different intellectual property available to business. This was used for Chinese students doing the Edexcel spec but I have used this in the UK since and also for GCSE. There is a interactive presentation plenty of discussion on questioning followed by a task sheet for students to decide which protection certain products could have.

Building an automated fast food menu in Python.

Building an automated fast food menu in Python.

An introduction into Python maths. This is really good to use as a transition lesson after a couple of lessons on Python with variables and print etc.. It shows the variables in maths and how Python could be used for good practical application. It's also mega fun, the worksheet is differentiated too so students can start at different points depending on ability and can be extended to introduce their own meals and prices etc.. There are lots of points set to assess understanding, mainly done through traffic light indicators. Students really love this, if you need a technical lesson on Python during the early stages to impress, this is it!! Also works as a good stand alone lesson for some good fun where lots of progress is made.

2 presentations designed to be delivered to AQA spec AS level business students at the start of the marketing units. There is a word document to accompany the product portfolio analysis PPT that is 6 products all produced by different companies i.e. Apple, Ford, Cadbury’s. I got students to put them in order or the revenue they generated. I hope these help, all feedback welcome. Pat

A brief introduction to Python Turtle, which includes sequencing and also mini whiteboard plenaries. A novice teacher to Python will be able to deliver this effectively and extend the tasks to draw interesting pictures.. Please buy this, I have a staff night out coming up :-(

Edexcel New Balance case study practice questions. with exam technique structure

(0)
Moc Exam based on the New Balance pre-release. Should help familiarize your students with the case study and preemptively prepare for certain questions. I have provided a K, AP, AN, E based answer where students have to identify what area of the answer attains these marks. Through their ability to identify this in others answers will in turn become a safeguarding mechanism so they do it in their own.

Introduction to Python

(0)
A fun and quick paced intro Python lesson with a, to quote "sick starter". Starter: Give one get one on images that relate to A.I. and a bit of a recap on Python turtle. After this students will build up conversation strings with if, else and elif statements. There is plenty of traffic light AFL points and a really enjoyable lesson. You will need to print off 2 pages I have included so they can do the starter and read the code. Please leave feedback on this, nobody does with paid resources, I never know how others are finding them. Cheers.

Moon Rover algorithm task

Students will sequence a set of instructions to navigate a moon rover to a set point on the map. This is quite basic but you can add further obstacles to suit. I have developed this by giving tasks to pick up stranded astronauts etc..
