### Computers and maths in space

Mathematics plays a vital part in space flight, it gives us a way both to predict what should happen in the future and also ways to measure what’s actually happening in the present, and adapt to it. In this resource we look at a few places where maths helps in space flight. The maths is made simple here (it’s far,...

### Building Images

In this activity, students create colour images from satellite data. This allows them to study how different surfaces reflect different wavelengths of light, how coloured images are created using an RGB model, and how band combinations can be chosen to examine a particular landscape effectively.

### Marble-ous Ellipses

In order to understand the orbits of planets, comets and other celestial bodies, it is necessary to examine the principles of how gravity, and the velocity of an object, interact to produce an orbit. It is a common misconception among students that planetary orbits are circular. This practical activity gives a...

### Properties of a Particle

This activity is produced by the Maths Magic project. Properties of a Particle provides examples and ideas for A-level mathematics and physics students investigating the properties ascribed to particles. Students discuss why these properties are needed and ask are they realistic? Activities include analysing the...

### Maths Made Magic

This handbook of magical mathematical tricks is intended for use in the classroom to help teach many of the basic concepts in mathematics in an engaging and entertaining way. The tricks have been mapped to topics found in Key Stage Four and are as diverse as Pythagoras' theorem, simultaneous equations, probability...

### Manual of mathematical magic

Many of the most powerful magical effects performed today have a mathematical basis. Mathematics is also the secret behind the technologies people use, the products they buy and the jobs they will have. This book shows how to perform some magic tricks, explains the mathematics behind them and how that same...

### 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...
