Solar System Simulation Activity

This activity introduces children to simulations - modelling or acting out real-world, or maybe imaginary, situations. Linking to the teaching of space, it asks what factors need to be considered when simulating the solar system. Out of these, the children then decide what the most important things to include in...

Classroom Sound Monitor

This cross curricular activity includes science content from Year Four of the primary curriculum. It introduces programming and control, linked to the outside world through sensors - in this case, the computer's built-in microphone or a peripheral microphone. Programs are written using Scratch (online or offline)...

Scratch Maths Quiz Variables

This Barefoot Computing resource builds on the ‘Maths quiz with selection’ learning activities which should be undertaken first.

It involves improving an existing Scratch maths quiz and adding score-keeping using variables – a quiz Scratch file is provided for students who do not have access to one they made...

Scratch Maths Quiz Selection

This Barefoot Computing resource for upper-primary computing lessons uses the creation of a Scratch maths quiz as a basis for learning about algorithms using selection.

Children are asked to create an algorithm that mirrors the quiz given orally by the teacher. Once they have developed the algorithm it is...

Vectors 2

The first two sheets use maps of New York to show how vectors can be used to specify journeys. Answers in terms of a and b can be revealed.

The third sheet shows that the vectors a and b used to describe relative position do not need to be perpendicular or equal in magnitude. It also illustrates parallel...

Vectors

This interactive excel sheet deals with a variety of vector topics. It begins with sheets which require students to identify column vectors from line segments and then to find the magnitude and direction of vectors expressed in column form.

The next interactive sheets illustrate the fact that a+nb lies...
