Using Percentages to Increase Quantities N7

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students make links between percentages, decimals and fractions, represent percentage increase and decrease as multiplication and recognise the inverse relationship between increases and decreases. Most students will have met these concepts before, however, many will...

Linking the Properties and Forms of Quadratic Equations C1

In this DfE Standards Unit resource, students identify different forms and properties
of quadratic functions, connect quadratic functions...

Computers Helping the Design Process at Lower Key Stage Two: Easy 3-D Vehicle Models

One of the trial units from the Nuffield Primary Solutions in Design and Technology. Children design and make a 3-dimensional prototype model of a commercial vehicle.

It must be suitable for use as a storage and transport vehicle for a particular load such as milk bottles, letters and parcels, sheets of...

Science and Engineering on the Moon Challenge

These NASA materials describe hands-on science and engineering challenges for students, using space exploration as an engaging context. The activities are related to NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and NASA's Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite missions. Students design and build: *an air-powered...

Meet the Gene Machine

Supported by the Wellcome Trust and developed by the Science Communication Unit at the University of the West of England, Meet the Gene Machine is a fun, creative and comprehensive teaching package allowing teachers and young people to discuss the ethical and social issues inherent in the field of genetics. Each '...

Drugs on the Brain

Produced by the Citizen Science project, this resource engages students in debating the social, political and health issues surrounding the use of drugs.

In this activity, debate commences by introducing characters, scenarios and issues connected with drugs. Students are given opportunities to hot seat as...

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...
