Parking Permits

In this activity from the Nuffield Foundation, which uses a scenario of parking permits at a college to introduce the topic, students learn about collecting data by stratified sampling and designing a questionnaire. A full review of relevant statistical terms is provided, together with instructions of how to select...

Successful HE Students

The Nuffield Foundation provide this resource which enables students to carry out significance tests on proportions and test hypotheses about successful applicants to higher education. The data provided on information sheet A is simulated but similar to real data available on the UCAS website. Information sheet B...

What's it worth?

This resource is part of a collection of Nuffield Maths resources exploring Calculus. The demand is roughly equivalent to that in GCE A level.

Students solve differential equations to find functions to model the value of a car in terms of its age. Then they compare their results with real data.

Stationary points

This resource is part of a collection of Nuffield Maths resources exploring Calculus. The demand is roughly equivalent to that in GCE A level.

This stationary points activity shows students how to use differentiation to find stationary points on the curves of polynomial functions. It includes the use of the...

Mean values

This resource is part of a collection of Nuffield Maths resources exploring Calculus. The demand is roughly equivalent to that in GCE A level.

In this resource students learn how to find the mean values of quantities varying with time. This involves finding the area under graphs, initially by using...

Maximising and minimising

This resource is part of a collection of Nuffield Maths resources exploring Calculus. The demand is roughly equivalent to that in GCE A level.

Here, students are asked to use differentiation to find maximum and minimum points in polynomial functions in order to solve a variety of real-life problems.

Maxima and Minima

Here, students are asked to use differentiation to find maximum and minimum points in polynomial functions in order to solve a variety of real-life problems.

This resource is part of a collection of Nuffield Maths resources exploring Calculus. The demand is roughly equivalent to that in GCE A level.

This resources is an introduction to differentiation. Students are shown how to use a spreadsheet to find the gradients of functions of the form xn. This...

Exponential rates of change

This resource is part of a collection of Nuffield Maths resources exploring Calculus. The demand is roughly equivalent to that in GCE A level.

This ‘exponential rates of change’ activity introduces the differentiation of exponential functions. Students find gradients by drawing tangents and by using small...

Drug Clearance

This resource is part of a collection of Nuffield Maths resources exploring Calculus. The demand is roughly equivalent to that in GCE A level.

This activity explores the rate of drug clearance from the body, both for common analgesic compounds and for caffeine.
