### Constructions and Loci

This MEP resource from CIMT is taken from text book 9B which covers the mathematics scheme of work for the second half of year 9.

Constructions and loci begins with a recap of different types of angle; angles on a straight line, vertically opposite, supplementary, corresponding, alternate and a recap of...

### Cross-Reference Mapping Between MEP and the National Numeracy Strategy

This mapping from CIMT gives the Key Objectives from the Secondary Framework (2001) for each year group and the respective units in the MEP scheme.

### Cumulative Frequency

This MEP resource from CIMT is taken from text book 9B which covers the mathematics scheme of work for the second half of year 9.

Cumulative frequency covers: a recap of the three types of average, a recap of range, how to graph grouped data, how to find the average of grouped data, culmulative frequency,...

### Darts

The mathematics generated by a dart board is the focus of this resource, from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics teaching. The apparent randomness of the sector placement on a standard dart board is explained and students explore the possible scores that can be achieved with a selection of darts. Establishing...

### Data Analysis

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

Data analysis covers: frequency tables for discrete ungrouped data, mean, median, mode and range.

The initial file forms part of the textbook. The activities sheet, extra...

### Data Collection and Presentation

This MEP resource from CIMT is taken from text book 7A which covers the mathematics scheme of work for the first half of year 7. This resource covers: definition of different types of data and collecting and organising data using pictograms, bar charts and pie charts. The initial file forms part of the textbook....

### Decimals

Designed to improve confidence in mathematics, these resources from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching, focus on decimals and were developed particularly for primary teachers and those non-specialists who teach mathematics in the lower secondary years....

### Decimals and their equivalent fractions

This resource, from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching, explores the misconception that decimals and fractions are different types of numbers. It illustrates how to write a decimal value as a fraction, as well as how, by using division, most fractions can be expressed with denominators of 10, 100 or...

### Dividing whole numbers by fractions

This resource, from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching, uses diagrams to illustrate division by a fraction and, to clarify the common misconception identified with this task, prompts students to rethink the statement, divide three by one quarter, as the number of quarters that fit into three....

### Drinks Cans

Drinks cans are made by stamping out circular discs from a sheet of tin. Given the dimensions of the sheet of tin and the diameter of the circle stamped out, students are required to calculate the wastage and to investigate whether there is a more efficient method. The problem requires students to be able to...
