F=ma in a Lift

This activity is produced by the Maths Magic project. F=ma in a Lift provides examples and ideas for A-level mathematics and physics students investigating what happens when they are being weighed in a lift and to have a discussion about mass and weight and the difference between the two quantities. Ideally...

F=ma in a Helicopter

This activity is produced by the Maths Magic project. F=ma in a Helicopter provides examples and ideas for A-level mathematics and physics students investigating what happens to packages hanging below a helicopter. The lesson plan describes an active lesson designed to promote discussion about what happens when the...

Curved Fold

This resource, from the Royal Institution, provides students with the opportunity to explore the formation of a parabola through a paper folding activity. Students follow a set of simple instructions which describe how to fold a piece of A4 paper and are asked to describe what shape is produced. The activity is...

Circles with Whole Number Points

Produced by the Maths Magic project, Circles with Whole Number Points provides teacher inspiration for investigating equations of a circle and Pythagoras’ theorem. The student task sheet refers to the use of Geogebra. The task consists of drawing circle, centre (0,0), radius 5 and finding all the points with...

Chlorophyll fluorescence

From Solar Spark, this activity allows students to see how chlorophyll can be energised and how this causes it to fluoresce. Chlorophyll in plant leaves absorb red light and pass the energy on to other parts of the plant, hence leaves look green. But if there is nowhere for the energy to go, it gets released as...

Can't Stand Up?

Produced by the Maths Magic project, Can’t Stand Up? provides teacher inspiration for introducing the topic of forces in an A-level mathematics or physics lesson. The plan describes two simple experiments asking a student to stand against a wall and then attempt to perform seemingly simple tasks. The tasks are...

Black Hole Mathematics

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at black holes. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in the maths and physical science post-16 curriculum. Problems consist of a student page and an answer sheet. Students need to be...

Air Miles

This More Maths Grads resource, from the Maths Careers website, investigates the maths used in transport and is based on the travelling salesman problem.

Students are given a table containing information on the cost of air travel between nine different cities and asked to plan a route that visits each...
