This collection from Teachers TV features videos, covering a wide range of mathematics topics, which are intended to be shown in class. Often ideal for use as as a lesson starter, some show practical applications of mathematical principles which pose problems for students to solve. Areas covered include:
*algebra to solve real problems
*surface area of different shapes
*ratio and proportion
*mathematics applied in business
This video resource from Teachers TV is presented by Steve Humble. Filmed in Durham Cathedral, it investigates the mathematics used by master masons and the links with classical architecture. Steve investigates the proportions in Durham Cathedral and discovers ratios that are very similar to the golden ratio....
This video resource from Teachers TV is presented by mathematics adviser and performer Isaac Anoom. Filmed in a shopping mall, it raises quick-fire starter questions on: surface area of an octagon, calculating percentages, determining the best buy, probability, ordering fractions using reciprocals...
This video resource from Teachers TV is presented by Fran and Dave, who demonstrate a practical application of ratio and proportion as they prepare for a dinner party.
The number of guests requires the adaptation of recipes for both food and drink. Graphics are used effectively throughout the video to...
This video resource from Teachers TV is presented by Fran and Dave, who use the length of a runway at an airport to demonstrate a practical application of mathematics. Graphics are used to demonstrate how to rearrange a formula.
Measurements, taken at an airport, are substituted into relevant formulae to...
