Working for Efficiency

This Cre8ate maths topic looks at simplified versions of three different network problems that are encountered in practical logistical planning. Paper rounds offers the opportunity for reasoning and proof as the arguments needed to establish Euler's theorem are within their grasp. It also, along with Cable...

Working at Play

These materials are provided by cre8ate maths and are aimed at supporting the teaching of mathematics at Key Stage Three, but can be used at Key Stage Two and Key Stage Four, in the context of sport. The resources include Running Tracks, World Records and Yorkshire Pupil Survey. The pupils have the opportunity to...

What's the Question?

This activity is produced by the Maths Magic project. What’s the Question? provides an activity to act as stimuli for work on the geometry of straight lines and circles. The activity consists of two mathematical diagrams. Students are asked to generate questions that could be asked related to each diagram. The...

This Cre8ate maths activity motivates the use of averages, ranges, percentages, bar charts, pie charts, and tables to make comparisons, interpretations and conclusions. The students can perform the "What is in your bowl?" activities to investigate serving amounts and what is eaten for breakfast. The data collection...

Wavy Edges

Due to problems in the manufacture of tinplate coils, the edge of the strip can be slightly longer than the centre. This causes a 'wave' on the wall of the coil but can be rectified by differentially stretching the strip to make the edges flat. Students are required to apply Pythagoras' theorem to find the radius...

Water: a global experiment with hydrogels

An activity which includes three experiments looking into the water-retaining property of hydrogels.

These experiments are designed for mass participation using everyday items at home or in class, anywhere around the world. They aim to enhance science learning and encourage practical investigation.  The...

Water Availability

In this activity, students take the role of data analysts of the World Water Resources Board (WWRB) a fictional organisation charged with providing financial aid to countries most in need of water. They will compare the availability of water in Algeria, Jordan and Turkey. Students will determine how to fairly...

Waste Management

This resource from Cre8ate maths works with government statistics to raise issues related to waste recycling. It would work well as a cross curricular topic with science colleagues, so that students understand both the chemical and energy issues involved in waste disposal. Students are presented with a composite...

VEX IQ with ModKit

This sample of a teacher guide introduces basic robotics using VEX IQ robotics kits and ModKit programming software – the activities are based upon a single robot model which can be constructed from the VEX starter kit.

Students learn about basic movement of the robot rover, as well as related challenges, in...

Vedic Maths 2

This set of Cre8ate maths activities requires pupils to practice number operations, to search for pattern in number and to work and deepen with their arithmetic understandings. In Vedic multiplication, these understandings are developed into simple algebra. This topic follows on from Vedic maths one and explores...
