Using Binomial Probabilities S8

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students calculate binomial probabilities and cumulative binomial probabilities. They develop their understanding of the context in which it is appropriate to use binomial probabilities, the symmetrical nature of the formula for a binomial probability and alternative...

Exploring Functions Involving Fractional and Negative Powers of x C2

In this DfE Standards Unit resource, students find the stationary points of a function and determine their nature and solve appropriate equations in order to find the intercepts of a
function. Students are encouraged to connect the mathematical properties of a function and relate them to the graph. Before...

Matching Functions and Derivatives C3

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students practise differentiating quadratic functions and finding the values of a function and its derivative at specific points. They will distinguish between f (x) and f ′(x), relate values of f (x) and f ′(x) to the graph of y = f (x) and reflect on and discuss these...

Differentiating and Integrating Fractional and Negative Powers C4

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students convert functions into an appropriate form for differentiating or integrating and then differentiate and integrate negative and fractional powers of x. Before starting the activity students should be able to differentiate and integrate polynomial functions and...

Finding Stationary Points of Cubic Functions C5

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students find the stationary points of a cubic function, determine the nature of these stationary points and to discuss and understand these processes.Students should have some knowledge of differentiation of polynomials, finding stationary points of a quadratic...

Moving from Eulerian Graphs to the Route Inspection (Chinese Postman) Problem O1

In this resource, from the Department fof Education Standards Unit, students learn to distinguish, by drawing and by using the order of the vertices, between Eulerian graphs, semi-Eulerian graphs and graphs that are neither; and to find strategies for solving the route inspection or ‘Chinese postman’ problem....

Exploring Equations of Motion 02

In this resource, from the Department for Education Standards Unit, students learn to use past paper examination questions creatively. The questions give them practice in using the equations of motion for constant acceleration and allow them to develop their ability to generalise from specific situations of motion...

Solving Problems Using Newton's Second Law O3

In this resource, from the Department for Education Standards Unit, students will learn to understand how Newton’s second law can be applied to a range of different problems. It will encourage learners to link the stages of solutions together and appreciate the purpose and relevance of each stage of a solution....

Build a Bug Activity

This is a classroom-based activity from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute that allows students to explore the features of two bacterial pathogen genomes. The aim of this activity is to highlight the role of different genetic components in two closely related subspecies of Salmonella enterica, and to identify how...

Strengthening Teaching and Learning in Science Through Using Different Pedagogies

This resource from the Department of Education consists of five teacher self-study units which were produced to offer practical suggestions for classroom use on: using group talk and argument; active questioning; improving the learning climate; using models and modelling techniques; and teaching the science of...
