### Representing 3D Shapes SS6

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students interpret 2D representations of 3D shapes, analyse 3D shapes using plans, elevations, and isometric drawings and develop their reasoning ability in spatial contexts. Many students may have met these ideas before, but they may still experience difficulties in...

### Rounding Numbers N3

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students work together to round numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1000. They make generalisations from the results obtained. Students should have some awareness of place value. (GCSE grades E-G)

### Simplifying Logarithmic Expressions A13

This DfE Standards Unit resource enables students to develop their understanding of the laws of logarithms, practise using the laws of logarithms to simplify numerical expressions involving logarithms and apply their knowledge of the laws of logarithms to expressions involving variables. Students should have some...

### Solving Problems Using Newton's Second Law O3

In this resource, from the Department for Education Standards Unit, students will learn to understand how Newton’s second law can be applied to a range of different problems. It will encourage learners to link the stages of solutions together and appreciate the purpose and relevance of each stage of a solution....
