Spread of disease

This Core Maths resource enables students to explore various models of the spread of disease. 

The presentation has links to instructions for three activities:

  • a practical investigation using a die and counters to model the spread and decline of a disease and an activity sheet to...

Anthropometric Data

This resource from the Nuffield Foundation allows students to investigate relationships between anthropometric variables and write a report on their findings, which may include the use of scatter diagrams, lines of best fit, regression lines, and correlation coefficients. The spreadsheet contains anthropometric...

Seeing Temperatures

This activity allows students to investigate how images are produced from data streams by using first a spreadsheet and then an image-processing program. They then go on to see how the usefulness of such a monochromatic image may be enhanced by using lookup tables and calibration. The materials used focus on the...
