A short starter activity for students of all ages. It would make a good introduction to lessons on robotics or artificial intelligence and could spark a discussion on how neural networks might be used to create human-like behaviour?. Equally, when discussing HCI design, it might move the debate beyond keyboard and...
This resource contains an unplugged activity to model how home networks work. It builds up to increasingly more complex networks, adding in details such as routers, wifi aceess points and the internet along the way. The lesson plan contains links to the Progression Pathways documentation, and differentiation ideas...

A cognitive scientist answers the question: I often have students tell me that they studied for a test, meaning that they reviewed their notes and the textbook, but they still did not do well. If they have reviewed the material, why don’t they remember it? Is there anything I can do to help them study more...
This lesson develops concepts relating to radicals. In particular, students will enhance their understanding of:
- Use the properties of exponents, including rational exponents and manipulate algebraic statements involving radicals.
- Discriminate between equations and identities.
This short task contains two questions on applying trigonometry.
The topics covered are:
- Linking sine, cosine and tangent
- Using Pythagoras to determine a length in a triangle and then give the tangent of an angle in surd form
- Using the Pythagorean identity sin2(x) + cos2(x) = 1...
This lesson develops the concept of finding areas of sectors. In particular students will:
- Find perimeters, areas, and arc lengths of sectors using formulas
- Find the relationships between arc lengths, and areas of sectors after scaling
- Using radians
The initial challenge...
