Gambling

This Core Maths task investigates various aspects of gambling. Students investigate various aspects of gambling and helps develop a realistic assessment of the risks involved. Students will need a good understanding of theoretical and experimental probability.

Gambling: Teacher guidance...

Differentiation Exercise

This interactive resource, produced by the University of Leicester, is designed to enable students to explore the differential function of a polynomial and conclude by forming a generalisation.

An instruction page explains to students that they should draw a polynomial. Then by sliding the slider the...

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...

MRSA Gene Hunt

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 the activity is to highlight the role of different genetic components in two strains of Staphylococcus aureus and to identify how these have led to...

Quadratic Equations

This interactive resource, produced by the University of Leicester, is designed to enable students to explore what is meant by a quadratic equation, the meaning of the coefficients of a quadratic equation and to be able to solve quadratic equations. An introduction page gives examples of where quadratic equations...

The Exponential Function

This interactive resource, produced by the University of Leicester, is designed to enable students to explore the nature of the exponential function and to explore the derivative of the exponential function.

An introduction page sets out some basic information about exponential functions leading to a...

Transformation of Functions

This interactive resource, produced by the University of Leicester, is designed to enable students to explore transformations of functions including translations, stretches, reflection in the axes and rotations.

The first activity uses function notation to explore translations parallel to the x axis and...

Transformation of Shapes

This interactive resource, produced by the University of Leicester, is designed to enable students to explore transformations of shapes including translation by a vector, stretches, rotations around a point, reflection in the axes and reflections in the lines y=x and y=-x.

The first activity draws a...

Vectors Introduction

This interactive resource, produced by the University of Leicester, is designed to enable students to explore vectors, beginning with the definition of a vector followed by the algebra of vectors and the scalar product. The opening slides of the presentation explain the difference between scalar and vector...

Bivariate Data, Regression and Correlation: Residuals

In this activity the goal is for students to understand how the regression line is chosen. Autograph has a built-in facility for showing the squares of the residuals and is required to make this task work. Students are asked to explore what the lines that give the sum of the y-on-x residuals equal to zero have in...
