Problem 7: Iodination Inquiry

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, can be used to develop students’ understanding of rate equations and skills in calculating rate determining steps.

A teacher asks the students to help in designing a...

Fraction Games for Students Aged 5-7

This game for two players, published by BEAM, requires students to halve even numbers by playing a game. Students spin a spinner, half the number and then collect the correct number of counters. The winner is the student with the most counters after five rounds. The game offers an opportunity to discuss the...

Fractions: Adding and Subtracting

Adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator – This video begins by showing the common mistake of adding the numerator and adding the denominator and explaining why this cannot be correct. The correct method is used with a pictorial representation to aid understanding. The video continues with a...

Shape Games for Students Aged 9-11

Published by BEAM, these games provide opportunities for students to practise and consolidate their knowledge and understanding of shape and space. The three games, with their mathematical content, are: *Angles - identifying right, acute and obtuse angles in shapes *Coordinates grid game - generating co-ordinates...

Problem 6: Acid Erosion

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, can be used to demonstrate students’ understanding of strong and weak acids and pKa. It involves carrying out a series of titrations to determine which of three drinks is the least acidic, and hence which is the least...

James Webb Space Telescope Guide

Designed for teachers and STEM Ambassadors, this guide to the James Webb Space Telescope contains sections on the design of the spacecraft and instruments, and the science objects of the mission.  Advice on which information is appropriate for primary and secondary level is included.

Designing the Mirror

In this activity, students will use memory metal wire to create a model of a deployable structure.  The James Webb Space Telescope has several structures that must be deployed in space, including parts of the primary mirror.  Students must create and evaluate a design to enable the primary mirror to fold inside the...

Flight Test

This activity requires students to design and construct a payload fairing and vibration rig to test a protection system for a satellite (an egg).  Students are given limited materials (this can be differentiated accordingly) to produce their model, the success of the model is initially measured by the egg not being...

Multi-Race Game

This game, aimed at primary level, allows children to practice multiplication problems. Children move along a track landing on different numbers, mainly from the 6, 7, 8 and 9 times tables. To move they must say the pair of numbers (factors) which will multiply together to give a nearby product on the board. The...
