This SMILE resource contains one pack of games, investigations, worksheets and practical activities supporting the teaching and learning of coordinates.
The pack contains ten work cards with a wide variety of activities requiring students to use coordinates to solve a coded message, draw a picture, use different kinds of grids to draw coordinate pictures, use coordinates to solve a puzzle, and plot coordinates in all four quadrants.
SMILE (Secondary Mathematics Individualised Learning Experiment) was initially developed as a series of practical activities for secondary school students by practising teachers in the 1970s. It became a complete individualised scheme based around a network of activity cards and assessments.
