### Multiplications can increase or decrease

This resource, provided by the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching, explores why multiplication does not always increase the size of a number. It explains how, by putting the term multiplying into a context with which students can identify and making a situation meaningful, this common...

### Multiplying decimals

This resource, from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching, illustrates the common mistakes students make when multiplying two decimal values. It suggests that the language used could be adjusted so that the term times is interchanged with of, thus one-tenth of one-tenth is...

### National Lottery

The Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching provide this resource which uses the National Lottery to promote class discussion and mathematical thinking. Students explore how the lottery works and investigate the probability of winning, as well as considering a variety of different investment opportunities....

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.

Nets and surface area covers: the properties of common 2d and 3d shapes, 2d representation of 3d shapes, plans and elevations, nets and surface area of cubes and cuboids and nets...

### Notes on Lesson Plans

This document, provided by the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching (CIMT), describes the rationale behind the scheme. Its suggested teaching philosophy is based on whole-class activity led by the teacher and individual (or paired) work but with most students undertaking the same tasks. These tasks...

### Number Patterns and Sequences

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: multiples, finding the next term of a sequence, generating number sequences from a formula and formulae for general terms; finding the nth term. The...
