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...

Kitchen Science

From the Science Museum, this resource contains a booklet of science activities using everyday ingredients, with notes for teachers. The booklet contains step-by-step instructions for science activities and experiments that are safe and easy to do in the classroom or at home. The individual activities allow...

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.

Bridges and Structures

These activities from Cre8ate maths sets challenges which require pupils to be constructive, creative and think strategically about simple structures.

Working in groups of 3 or 4, students create structures from a single sheet of A4 paper, the tallest free-standing tower and the longest possible span between...

You Reckon?

In this activity students are introduced the idea of Plausible Estimation (PE). PE underpins major decisions made in private and public lives. PE tasks allow students to appreciate how powerful simple mathematics can be when making decisions about important topics by solving problems faced by aid agencies,...

Youth Hostel

In this Bowland assessment task, students are required to allocate dormitories at a Youth Hostel for a given number of boys, girls and adults given certain constraints. Suitable methods of displaying the information are to be designed, a systematic method employed in order to check that all the conditions have been...
