Lunar Math

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at Lunar exploration. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in mathematics and physical science from age 11 to 19 years.

The problems were created to be authentic glimpses of...

Image Scale Math

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at image scaling, which is an important first step that all astronomers perform when looking at image data. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in mathematics and physical science from...

Welding with Chocolate

This activity, from The Welding Institute, gives students the opportunity to build structures made from chocolate. In the example given, a box-section is compared with a flat plank of chocolate, to see which is the strongest when spanning a gap. The structures are readily related to the context of bridge-building....

Fun Maths Roadshow Activities

These resources have been provided by the Liverpool Mathematical Society. They are part of The FunMaths Roadshow collection of 350 mathematical activities, the first 100 of which were developed to celebrate the centenary of the Liverpool Mathematical Society in 1999. A further 250 have been developed...

Chapter 3: Using Random Samples of Real Data

This chapter in the booklet Relevant and Engaging Statistics and Data Handling from the Royal Statistical Society Centre for Statistical Education (RSSCSE) describes the steps needed to both take and use random samples of real data from the CensusAtSchool website. In addition it offers some ideas to allow students...

UNESCO Resource Kit - Science and Technology Education

This folder of guidance and resources was published for UNESCO by the Association for Science Education. The resources consisted of 26 modules each with Student’s Notes and Teacher’s Notes.

UNESCO Project 2000+ was a collaborative partnership between eleven major international agencies and inter-governmental...

Wider Implications of Shopping

Produced by the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAE) this activity aims to encourage students to consider the wider environmental, social and economic implications of shopping. It can be conducted in small groups as an introduction to sustainability.

Balloon Bugs

This resource from Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is a practical, classroom activity that allows the students to make a balloon model of a disease-causing bacterium. This illustrates its basic shape and structure. Students can choose from three bacteria species including:

1. Salmonella Typhimurium and...

Contamination Detectives

This resource from Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is a hands-on classroom activity for Key Stage Two students that aims to support the teaching of topics such as microbes and hand hygiene. This interactive, practical activity demonstrates how microbes, such as bacteria and viruses, can be spread through surface...
