Differentiation through Maths Trails

This resource presents a differentiated activity which enables environmental problem solving and a wealth of off-site, school-based activities. Although the model has been designed for a particular public park, the format is uniform and many of the actual tasks can be lifted directly from it to be used in similar situations in other trails.

Motivating Maths at GCSE: Outdoor Trigonometry

A video from Teachers TV illustrates a practical lesson on trigonometry to a class of GCSE students. Working in groups, they first estimate the height of four buildings on the school site. They then measure actual distances and angles which are used, back in the classroom, to calculate the heights of the buildings and compare these to their original estimates.
