Risps for A2 Level Core
This set of starting activities from RISPs cover a wide range of topics leading directly into the mathematic syllabus for A2 level. The risps resources are grouped by topic and each comes with accompanying teachers' notes.
Topics for A2 mathematics included in this resource are:
*Exponentials and Natural Logarithms
*Integration 3: Differential Equations
*Generic/Miscellaneous Risp Ideas
The first of two RISP activities, Periodic Functions, asks students to write down as many periodic functions as they can. The activity progresses to look at what happens to the period when graphs with different periods are combined. Topics covered are...
This RISP activity Polynomial Equations with Unit Coefficients sets students the task of finding the roots of polynomials with a large number of terms. Students are required to use a graph plotter to compare the graphs of several polynomials looking for common points and...
Two Special Cubes is a RISP activity designed to introduce the idea of implicit differentiation. Students are presented with two cubes of length x and y and are told that volume, the surface area and the edge length form an arithmetic progression....
This RISP activity, The answer's 1: what's the question?, gives students graphs containing shaded areas enclosed by two functions. Examples of a straight line and a quadratic graph, a cubic graph and an exponential graph are used. Given that the enclosed area has a value of one, students are asked...
