Salters' Chemistry Club Volume One: Activities 14-17

This resource describes activities for an informal chemistry club. The aim is to convey the excitement of chemistry and develop students’ curiosity. Activity 14: Students use an exothermic reaction to make a heat pack. Activity 15: Students investigate reactions with copper. Activity 16: Students write with a...

Running a Club

These Cre8ate maths activities draw on the mathematics of combinatorial thinking and involve a set of functional maths activities.

Royal Liver Clock

In this Bowland assessment task, students are shown a picture of one of the clock faces from the Royal Liver building that was once used as a table. Students are asked to estimate how many people could sit around this table. The diameter of the clock is given in feet so that the circumference can be calculated....

Rods and Triangles

In this Bowland assessment task, students are presented with five rods of different lengths. Rods can be joined to make different triangles. Students are challenged to form as many triangles with as many different properties as possible. They are required to identify triangles, describe angles, justify their...

Robot Swarms

Together with related activities from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), this resource allows students to investigate the wide range of sophisticated imaging technology available in modern hospitals, and to explore the latest ideas in search-and-rescue robotics.

Students work in small teams...

Robot Arm Design

In this activity students design and model a robot arm in 2D, need to be able to name the main parts of a robot arm and to be able to design and make a 2D card model of a 3D product. Robot arms are an example of a programmable system. They are used in a wide variety of industrial applications, ranging from loading...

Rigid Structures

This activity from Cre8ate maths looks at the exciting mathematics connected with the regeneration going on in our cities. The three activities are based around the construction of rigid structures and provide opportunities for practical work and mathematical problem solving.

Finding rigidity introduces...

Reducing Road Accidents

This activity provides the opportunity for students to appreciate how mathematics plays a part in everyday life. The town council has allocated £100,000 to spend on reducing the number of deaths and serious injuries due to road accidents. Students are expected to adopt the role of planners who work in small teams...

Reaction times

In this activity from Nuffield, students are asked to develop an experiment to measure and test people's reaction times. They can use any equipment available in the school/classroom, and will need to consider the reliability of their experiment and how any data collected will be analysed and presented.

Rabbits

In this Cre8ate maths activity students learn that a simulation is a model of a real situation. Data for the birth rate of rabbits is provided and is used by students to develop their own model to simulate the breeding of rabbits in a field and consider the likely damage to the farmer’s crop. Initially this is done...
