### EAN Bar Codes

Bar codes are used extensively and this resource, from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching, enables students to explore how they are structured. The activities are designed to prompt class discussion and mathematical thinking as students learn how to check that a code is valid and develop their own...

### Earthquakes

The application of logarithms is the focus of this resource from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching. The magnitude of an earthquake and its measurement on the Richter Scale is used to develop an understanding of logarithms. Students investigate details of events and learn that an earthquake of 4.7 is...

### Easter Date

Easter Day varies from year to year and in this resource, from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching, students encounter the algorithm used to establish when it will occur. A series of tasks, designed to prompt class discussion and mathematical thinking, lead students to predict when Easter Day will...

### Equations

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

Each section offers an overview of a...

### Estimation and Approximation

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.

Estimation and approximation covers: rounding to the nearest 10,100,100, rounding to significant figures, rounding to decimal places, estimating calculations by rounding to one...

### Factors

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.

Factors covers: factors and prime numbers, prime factors, index notation, highest common factor, lowest common multiple, squares and square roots.

The initial file forms...

The relationship between third world countries and the developed world is demonstrated in this resource, from the Centre for Innovation in Teaching Mathematics. Students work in groups to make and sell shapes, which are bought by the class teacher who performs the dual roles of Banker and United Nations. Market...

### Flight Charges

Countries charge for planes to fly through their airspace even if the plane does not land. Different countries levy different charges, therefore plane companies consider a number of different routes and calculate the associated charges with each route. The formula used to fly over Europe is considered and an...

### Formulae

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.

Formulae covers: substitution into simple formulae, substituting positive and negative numbers into more complex formulae using BODMAS, solving simple linear equations, solving...

### Fractions

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

Each section offers an overview of a...
