Corner to Corner

In this Nuffield activity students investigate how different numbers of squares can be joined corner to corner and the effect their arrangement has on the area of the rectangle that encloses the squares.

The key processes developed in this activity are:

*Representing - determining which aspects to...

Colouring Maps

This activity from Subtangent is based on the four colour theory, which is used by mapmakers. There is an interactive task which challenges students to colour a map using no more than four colours and ensuring that no two regions which share a border have the same colour. Further resources include examples of...

Circuit Construction Kit

This simulation allows students to build circuits with capacitors, inductors, resistors and AC or DC voltage sources, and investigate current and voltage.

Sample Learning Objectives include: *Build circuits from circuit diagrams. *Use an ammeter and voltmeter to take readings in circuits. *Discuss basic...

Sustainable Communities

This resource consists of a series of images, audio commentary and videos of sustainable design features in a community. These are: * Code Level 6 homes * Wind Turbines * Solar Panels * Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDs). The aim of the resource is to share some of the findings of an Economic and...


  • This animation clearly shows the life cycle of the malaria parasite Plasmodium sp and the stages of the lifecycle which occur in either the human or the mosquito host. It also demonstrates the role the mosquito plays as a vector transmitting the parasite...

Heads will roll

In this resource the head of a circular snowman rolls around its circular body to make one trip back to where it started. The ratio of the diameters of the circles is given. The challenge is to find how many times the head will revolve throughout the journey, and find a general rule.

The resource contains a...

Wolfram Mathematica for Beginners

This series of structured, interactive tutorials from Wolfram Mathematica provide a comprehensive introduction to a wide range of functions of the Mathematica software.

Note: These are Mathematica Notebook files (extension .nb) and can only be opened using Wolfram Mathematica software.

Charges and fields

This simulation allows students to arrange positive and negative charges in space and view the resulting electric field and electrostatic potential. They can plot equipotential lines, discover their relationship to the electric field and create models of dipoles, capacitors, and more!

Gas Properties

This simulation allows students to pump gas molecules into a box and see what happens as you change the volume, add or remove heat, change gravity, and more. They can measure the temperature and pressure, and discover how the properties of the gas vary in relation to each other.

Sample learning objectives...

Data analysis revision

A series of interactive revision materials for Core Maths students covering Data Analysis. In each resource students can reveal the solutions to worked examples before submitting and marking there own answers to a series of revision question.

The materials are hosted by Plymouth University's Centre for...
