Errors *suitable for home teaching*

The Nuffield Foundation provides this activity which uses examples in the context of shape and space to help students understand how big errors may be, and how errors accumulate when measurements are used in calculations. This is particularly important in scientific contexts. Students are required to find the upper...

Cell Signalling *suitable for home teaching*

Produced in 2014, this resource looks at cell signalling when the hormone adrenaline binds to receptors on the surface of the target cell. The resource sheets describe how the original hormonal signal is amplified through a cascade reaction.

Supporting videos explain key areas of working scientifically,...

Biodiversity *suitable for home teaching*

Sovon, a Dutch bird protection organisation, counts birds. The number of greylag geese is increasing. Students are asked to investigate whether this increase is worrying for the diversity of water bird species? Students explore what the concept biodiversity means, how it can be described mathematically and what are...

ARKive on Tour

Produced by ARKive, these materials are designed to teach students aged 11-14 about the variety of habitats worldwide and the diversity of species found in each habitat. The activity also highlights topics including interdependence, adaptation and how species evolve specialised features.

Working in groups,...

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...

Islamic Design

This Cre8ate maths activity focuses on reflection and thinking about translation or rotation. It also uses co-ordinates to develop a non-standard transformation. The topic provides rich opportunities for cross curricular work and can also provide the focus for off-site activities.

Is It Fair?

This Cre8ate maths activity provides an opportunity for work on inverse proportion, conversion calculations, compound percentage change and information handling skills.

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...

Crystal Shapes 2

This activity from Cre8ate maths explores Platonic solids, which are formed from regular polygons where all their faces are identical and all their vertices are identical too. Students are told that there are only five platonic solids, which they can build using triangles, squares and pentagons. Completing the...

Crystal Shapes 1

This activity from Cre8ate maths explores the rotational symmetry of carefully chosen crystals. Initially students work with plain and coloured nets of cubes may use trial and improvement methods to find different possible rotations of symmetry, before exploring ways to be systematic in their investigation. For...
