4 Qualities of an Effective Study Plan

4 Qualities of an Effective Study Plan

The fact that you are creating a study plan is a strong first step in effectively preparing for your classes. Without a plan, you're left to study haphazardly, focusing on different topics as they come to mind. While a plan itself can help you remain...

Exoplanets

This animated clip explains how planets outside our solar system are difficult to see because they get lost in the glare of the star they orbit. The clip briefly mentions Doppler shift, dimming through transit as detection techniques that enable us to infer what the planet is made of, and explains what the...

Route Inspection

The aim of the route inspection problem is to find a route that is as short as possible yet goes down every road once and returns to the starting point. The task informs students that there has been a heavy snowfall overnight and that the students are required to clear the roads in the town centre as quickly as...

Reduction Mill

The reduction mill reduces the thickness of a strip of steel using a series of rollers, each roller making the steel slightly thinner. The percentage reduction is constant on each pair of rollers. The mathematics used to calculate the actual reduction is similar to that used when calculating compound interest....

Radiation Math

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at radiation, and will make the student familiar with many forms of radiation, how it is measured, and what different doses can lead to over time. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in...

Properties of a Particle

This activity is produced by the Maths Magic project. Properties of a Particle provides examples and ideas for A-level mathematics and physics students investigating the properties ascribed to particles. Students discuss why these properties are needed and ask are they realistic? Activities include analysing the...

Prepare your own Solar Cell

Renewable energy is generally considered as being from an energy resource that is replaced rapidly by a natural process such as power generated from the sun or from the wind. Most renewable forms of energy, other than geothermal and wave power, ultimately come from the sun. Visible light can be converted directly...

Planarity

Many topological graphs have edges that cross. The aim is to re-draw the graph in such a way that none of the edges cross. The task informs students they are required to design a printed circuit board and since the wires are not insulated they must not cross.

Planarity: presentation - an...
