Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching
The Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching (CIMT) was established in 1986. The centre is a focus for research and curriculum development in mathematics teaching and learning, with the aim of unifying and enhancing mathematical progress in schools and colleges.
This collection contains resources for use in the teaching of mathematics.
The Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching provide these resources, developed to emphasise the practical nature of mathematics and its application to real life situations.
Athletics Track - explores the mathematics required in the design of an athletics track.
This collection of resources from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching were developed to improve the confidence of primary teachers and those non-specialist teachers who teach mathematics in the lower secondary years. A series of 10 modules, based on the material used in the Mathematics Enhancement...
A collection of six resources exploring the mathematics used in the production of steel. Students explore the: *Design of tin cans requiring the formation of equations, calculation of the volume of a cylinder and the minimum value for surface area. *Most efficient way to stamp out the template for a drinks can from...
A collection of three resources exploring the mathematics used in air travel. Students explore: *Scheduling of aircraft, the construction of timetables and dealing with time zone differences. *Scheduling pilots, using formulae to calculate the working time of pilots. *The use of formulae to calculate flight charges...
