Working with Photos

This activity from Cre8ate maths develops understanding of enlargement.

Students work in groups and, intuitively, sort sets of photos to identify those which have been enlarged from an original image. They then justify their decisions and share their explanations with the rest of the class. Photo sets three...

Function Machines

There are 10 questions on function machines in this Subtangent resource.

Questions increase in difficulty and offer students the opportunity to identify specific problem areas.

The test covers simple inputs and outputs from single and double function machines, as well as requiring students to...

Properties of Numbers

In this Subtangent resource there are 10 questions of increasing difficulty starting with factors and multiples. Square and triangular numbers LCMs and HCFs complete the topics.

Students are given four possible answers to choose from and a calculator is available for some of the questions.

There is an...

Pythagoras' Theorem

This Subtangent test on Pythagoras' theorem gives students the opportunity to practice all aspects of this topic.

Questions begin with simple calculations and progress to problems which are set in context as well as a complex 3-dimensional application.

An on screen calculator with root, square and...

Quadratics 1

This Subtangent test progresses from students identifying quadratic expressions, expanding brackets and factorising expressions to solving quadratic equations.

Students are given four possible answers to choose from and there is an opportunity to review their choices before submitting their final answers....

Moon Landing: Apollo 11

On July 20, 1969, the astronaut Neil Armstrong was the first human to set foot on the moon. From NASA, these images illustrate the story behind "One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." Truly a milestone moment in space exploration.

Hubble Space Telescope

This video clip from NASA shows how the Hubble Space Telescope has changed the way scientists look at the universe, without the interference of Earth's atmosphere. Find out how this telescope works and a bit of history about the man after whom it is named. The presentation is aimed at primary students but the...

Images of Astronauts

From NASA, these images show astronauts from early space missions, to the space shuttle and international space station. The images can be used to illustrate human space exploration in a range of resources. Yuri Gagarin was the first human in space and Neil Armstrong, part of the Apollo 11 mission, was the first...

Lunar Rover Images

Humans have landed on the Moon. These images, from NASA, show some of the Lunar rovers that have been involved in manned Lunar explorations and some that may be developed for future missions to the Moon.

Stars, Nebulae, Galaxies

NASA has been responsible for some fantastic images of space, especially from the Hubble Space Telescope. These are a few of the images of stars, nebulae and galaxies. More images are available from the  NASA website
