My website set up for teachers of Computer Science. Essentially to aid teaching at top primary through to final year secondary. Lessons, worksheets and open source software free to download from the repositories. Includes a Course for CAS Master Teachers delivered at UCL in 2016. A substantial amount of unplugged...

Experiments on Coralline Algae as a Model to Examine the Effects of Climate Change and Environmental Variation

There are teacher notes and student materials which describe the research into the potential effects of climate change on a Coralline algae species. Curriculum links include biodiversity, sampling techniques, student t test, Simpson’s Index, photosynthesis, climate change, ecology, ecosystems, adaptation,...

Space Radiation

For teachers of advanced physics who may have an interest in computing, this Astro-Pi activity explores radiation in space and considers how it might affect human health. Humans currently live aboard the International Space Station, where they are exposed to radiation emanating from the Sun and from cosmic ray...

Magnetic Earth

This AstroPi resource helps secondary school students investigate the magnetic field of the Earth. The series of activities develops from basic principles of magnetism through to some understanding of the nature and cause of the Earth's magnetism.

The guide links to several other eLibrary resources and a...

Introduction to big data

A detailed presentation from Ben Houghton, data scientist at Barclays PLC. It is good introduction to Big Data and the three Vs (volume, variety and velocity). Other topics covered are machine learning and its use in fraud detection, legal and data privacy challenges and technology bottle necks caused by...

Skype Call An Engineer @ BuroHappold

I would like to share with you an exciting outreach programme that we here at BuroHappold Engineering have developed. BuroHappold is a multi-disciplinary engineering and consulting firm, involved in almost all aspects of designing the built environment. As a company we coordinate numerous outreach opportunities,...

Evaluating statements about radicals

This lesson develops concepts relating to radicals. In particular, students will enhance their understanding of:

  • Use the properties of exponents, including rational exponents and manipulate algebraic statements involving radicals.
  • Discriminate between equations and identities.
    In this...

Meteorite investigators

In this lesson, students will investigate some of the meteorites and associated rocks in the loan box. They will test them for magnetism, do a visual analysis and measure their mass to calculate the densities of their items. This activity is particularly geared towards getting students to estimate the volume of the...

Trigonometric functions

This short task contains two questions on applying trigonometry.

The topics covered are:

  • Linking sine, cosine and tangent
  • Using Pythagoras to determine a length in a triangle and then give the tangent of an angle in surd form
  • Using the Pythagorean identity sin2(x) + cos2(x) = 1...

Calculating arcs and areas of sectors in circles

This lesson develops the concept of finding areas of sectors. In particular students will:

  • Find perimeters, areas, and arc lengths of sectors using formulas
  • Find the relationships between arc lengths, and areas of sectors after scaling
  • Using radians

The initial challenge...
