### Braille

Braille is a system of dots which enables blind people to read and this resource, from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching, provides the opportunity for students to explore the patterns used in this code. The activities are designed to prompt class discussion and mathematical thinking, while engaging...

### Calculations with hundreds and thousands

This resource, from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching, builds on students' previous knowledge of multiplying by powers of 10 to demonstrate how calculations such as 2000 x 300 can be performed accurately. Follow-up exercises provide practice in the skills learned.

### Calculations with negative numbers

Straightforward logic is used in this resource, from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching, to establish the calculation, necessary to move correctly along a number line, when the starting point is at a negative value. Phrases such as owing and debt are used to help students deal with...

### Carbon Footprint

Mathematical modelling is the focus of this resource, from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching. Students explore the mathematics behind carbon emission measurement and the concept of carbon footprints. Basic calculations for the travel component of a carbon footprint are demonstrated here, but many...

### 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...

### Champions League

The application of probability, together with combinatorics, is the focus of this A level resource, from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematical Teaching. The 2008 draw for the Champions League provides data for students to investigate the probabilities of English teams being drawn against each other and to...

### Circles and Cylinders

This MEP resource from CIMT is taken from text book 8B which covers the mathematics scheme of work for the second half of year 8.

Circles and Cylinders covers, an introduction to circles, naming the different parts of a circle, estimating the circumference of a circle, eatimating the area of a circle,...

### Coil Feed Line

This problem features a coil of tinplate being stored on a mandrel. In the first problem, students are presented with the diameter of the mandrel, the height from the floor, the width of the coil and the density of the steel. The problem is to calculate the maximum coil weight. A worked solution is included with...
