Symmetry

In these AMP resources, co-funded by the Clothworkers and Nuffield Foundation, students investigate making different symmetrical shapes, using one or more of three given shapes. Students will work logically, identifying and classifying patterns making general statements.

The key processes are:

*...

Printing

This Cre8ate maths resource looks at challenges derived from printing processes where both logic and geometric thinking are required. In Folding booklets students are given a piece of A4 paper which they fold to form a 16 page booklet and, without cutting the folds in the paper, are challenged to number the pages...

Packaging

This topic explores flat designs which can be folded and used to package food and drink. These Cre8ate maths activities provide rich experience of visualising 3 dimensional shapes from 2 dimensional representations. In Four Chocolates and It Takes the Biscuit!, students will need to measure accurately and construct...

Maths Careers

These resources come from the Maths Careers website, which is managed and maintained by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.

The eleven activities in this collection are designed to encourage learner to delve deeper into a wide range of mathematical topics including air miles, paper folding and...

Linear Programming

Linear Programming involves creating a function that represents a real life problem. The aim is to optimise this function given certain constraints. Simple examples of linear programming will have few variables and constraints, however, real life situations will have many more variables and constraints that will...

Investigations

These interactive investigations from Subtangent help to develop a systematic approach but require students to use their own recording methods. They can be used as a whole class introduction to an investigation or as individual tasks. There are additional resources with some of the investigations so that pupils can...

Fractals

This resource, from the Maths Careers website, explores fractal geometry and was created in conjunction with More Maths Grads and the University of Leeds.

The activity involves making paper representations of fractals and gives the opportunity to investigate some of their mathematical properties.

The...

Critical Path Analysis

Critical path analysis is a project management technique and is used to lay out all of the activities which are needed to complete a task. Starting some activities will depend on completing others first, while independent activities can be started any time. Critical path analysis helps to predict the project...

Constructions

This resource from Defence Dynamics looks at the military’s historical (and current) use of constructions and mathematical accuracy in warfare and peacetime defence. Students are asked to draw constructions to represent how the military target hostile forces, stressing the importance of accuracy in calculations...

Challenges

These resources have been provided by Mathematical Education on Merseyside who have been running Challenge and Senior Challenge, take-home competitions for February half term, since the late 1970s. The Challenge is aimed at students in Years Seven and Eight. Each challenge consists of about eight questions, with...
