Astronaut or Satellite?

This activity introduces the idea of remote sensing and some of the difficulties of obtaining images from orbit by asking students to match photographs taken from the ground with early astronaut photographs.

Assembly: Space Exploration

This assembly resource, from the Association for Science Education (ASE), focuses on whether we need to explore space at all, particularly in view of the vast cost involved. This material is part of the SYCD: Science Year Is There Life? collection.

The aim of the assembly series is to make students more...

Animals in Space

Produced by Understanding Animal Research, this resource looks at how animals have a central part to play in all sorts of research, not just in the development of drugs. 

This activity illustrates how animals have contributed to space programmes and encourages students to consider the ethical implications of...

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:

*...

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.

To overcome various challenges, from floods to escaped cattle to over-excited crowds storming the stage, students must apply their mathematical knowledge to real life situations. The problems are intended to promote discussion,...

Three Dice

In this Nuffield probability activity students play a bingo-style game. To maximize their chances of winning, students must decide which numbers are most likely to occur when three dice are thrown and the scores are added.

The key processes developed in this activity are:

*Representing - identifying...

The Golden Curve

This resource, from the Maths Careers website, explores decimal numbers, predicting terms of a sequence and geometrical pictures and was produced in conjunction by More Maths Grads and the Queen Mary University of London.

The activity invites students find the maths hidden in everyday images, before...

Stacks

In this Nuffield interactive activity students are asked to explore, analyse and describe the patterns generated by moving counters between two stacks according to a fixed rule, always doubling the size of the smaller stack.

The key processes developed by this activity include:

*Representing -...
