Tomorrow's Engineers: cargo drop

This engineering activity challenges students to design and build a system of dropping cargo from an airplane, safely delivering a parcel of food aid.

Tin Can Design

Tin cans come in a variety of shapes and sizes. In this activity students consider the net of a tin can, the formula for the total surface area and the formula for the volume of the can. The first problem requires students to express the total surface area as a function of r by eliminating h. The second problem...

Tiling Patterns

Cre8ate maths provides these activities which investigate the tessellation of regular polygons and its application in construction. Initially students identify which regular polygons tessellate, providing the opportunity to discuss the interior angles of polygons and the sum of angles at a point, before looking at...

Ticket to Ride

Aimed at primary level, this pack contains nine activities on the theme of transportation. The activities investigate topics related to friction, forces, levers, earth and space, air and water resistance and areas of design and technology. Designed either for use in class or within a science week or club, the...

Three of a Kind

In this Bowland assessment task, students are required to use their knowledge of geometry to describe a pattern. They are presented with a pattern consisting of three hexagons made up of triangles and have to what is the same and what is different about each shape. Students are encouraged to consider lengths,...

Three Dice

In this Nuffield probability activity students play a bingo-style game. To maximize their chances of winning, students must decide which numbers are most likely to occur when three dice are thrown and the scores are added.

The key processes developed in this activity are:

*Representing - identifying...

The Z Factor

In this Bowland assessment task, students determine how long it would take for the judges to see every act that auditioned for a talent show. Students are told the total number of acts to be seen and have to determine what other information is required to find a solution. They have to make sensible estimates where...

The Three Jugs Problem

This resource from, the Maths Careers website, asks students to solve a problem involving measures of water. The worksheet asks students to share a jug of water evenly with only two empty jars of differing sizes to use for the task.

The Next Giant Leap

This resource comprises of six activities which include: *Electrodes and electrolytes: students must plan an investigation into which combinations of electrodes and electrolytes will provide electricity. *Investigation solar panels: students need to plan an investigation into three factors that they think may...

The Greenest Route

This Cre8ate maths activity deals with the external costs of transport which affect society but which are not paid for by the transport users who cause them. Road, rail, air and water are compared. Mathematical connections involve working on inverse proportion, conversion calculations, compound percentage change...
