Test run

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

In this resource, students interpret a speed–time graph for a car during a test run and fit linear and quadratic models to the graph. 

Smoke strata

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

This resource gives students the opportunity to practice in using logarithmic graphs to check that a power law is a good model for data and find the associated...

Minimum and maximum problems

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

This resource asks students to use graphical methods to solve maximum and minimum problems in industry and in working life, using a spreadsheet or graphic calculator...

How frequent are earthquakes

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

In this activity students use functions and graphs to model a relationship between the magnitude of earthquakes and how...

Anthropometric Data

This resource from the Nuffield Foundation allows students to investigate relationships between anthropometric variables and write a report on their findings, which may include the use of scatter diagrams, lines of best fit, regression lines, and correlation coefficients. The spreadsheet contains anthropometric...

Stature

The Nuffield Foundation provide this resource where students use simulated stature data for men and women in eight countries to draw histograms and look for general results, as manufacturers need to take these into account when they design products. This is mainly intended as an introduction to the normal...

Credit Cards

This activity from the Nuffield Foundation shows students how to use a recurrence relation to work out how long it takes to pay off a credit card loan and how much it costs. They can use a graphic calculator or spreadsheet to do the working. After working through the given example, where a customer spends £1250 and...

House Prices Moving Averages

This activity from the Nuffield Foundation introduces the use of moving averages and weighted moving averages to smooth out seasonal fluctuations in UK house prices, enabling the yearly trend to be identified. The data provided is adapted from The Halifax House Price Index spreadsheet and although the arithmetic...

Model the Motion

In this activity from the Nuffield Foundation, students match descriptions of a variety of real scenarios involving motion with the corresponding velocity–time and displacement–time graphs. Several issues will be discussed while completing this task and students will also have to consider how realistic or...

Runaway Train

In this activity from the Nuffield Foundation, students carry out an experiment to collect data about a trolley rolling down a slope. They then use this data to simulate the motion of a train by fitting a quadratic curve to their data, using a graphic calculator or spreadsheet. The slideshow provides an...
