Spinner Bingo

This Bowland assessment task requires students to list all the outcomes when the numbers on two spinners are added together and calculate the probability of each outcome. Students analyse three bingo cards to determine which is the most likely to win and are required to design a bingo card which has the best chance...

Speedy Santa

In this Bowland assessment task, students are asked to calculate the average amount of time Santa can spend in each house in the UK on Christmas Eve. Students are presented with facts about the population of the UK and constraints by which Santa must abide. They are then required to make reasonable assumptions and...

Speed Cameras

In this activity, students are presented with the question: “Do speed cameras reduce road casualties – or not?”. The activity is set in the context of media reporting to explore ideas of randomness, probability and drawing conclusions from data. A secondary theme is the mathematical modelling of a real situation....

Spectra

This resource contains two activities and accompanying teachers’ notes.

Spectra: A tale of two elements
Students must analyse data and review scientific ideas to explain observations made of the spectrum of the Sun.

Spectra: Solar fingerprints...

Spacelink

The Spacelink Learning Foundation is a UK Registered Charity dedicated to the use of space to improve education in secondary schools. The Foundation’s Education Policy is to encourage the maximum number of schools and other groups throughout the world to gain experience of, and benefit from, the use of space-...

Space Weather Math

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at space weather. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in mathematics and physical science from age 11 to 19 years.

The problems were created to be authentic glimpses of modern...

Space Weather Effects

This resource contains two activities and accompanying teachers’ notes.

Effect on a solar telescope
Using images from the SoHO satellite, students make an estimate the speed of charged particles in a Coronal Mass Ejection from the Sun.

Space weather and...

Space Math I - VI

This series of activities from NASA are based on a weekly series of space science problems distributed to teachers in the US, from 2004 to 2010. They were intended for students looking for additional challenges in the mathematics and physical science curriculum, from ages 9 to 19 years.

The problems were...

Solar Tornadoes

This resource uses the context of tornadoes in the solar atmosphere to investigate circular motion and energy changes. A hole is drilled in the bottom of a washing up bowl and orange pith can be used to track the motion of the water when draining through the bottom and creating a vortex. The Key Stage Three...

Solar Math

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at the Sun-Earth system. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in mathematics and physical science from age 11 to 16 years.

The problems were created to be authentic glimpses of...
