### Teaching A level mathematics: proof, problem solving and modellingMY216

Changes to A level specifications are to be introduced in 2017.  These will require all students to study aspects of Pure mathematics, Statistics and Mechanics.  In addition, three overarching themes of Mathematical Argument and Proof, Problem Solving, and Mathematical Modelling must be applied across the whole A...

### Fermi problems

A Fermi problem involves making estimates and using mathematics to answer a question, in more colloquial language they might be termed ‘back of envelope’ calculations.

Many of the questions don’t have clear cut answers, and sometimes alternative paths to solutions are possible.

The level of...

### Box problem

In this Core Maths task students investigate how to make a box of maximum volume from a given square of card. The ultimate objective is to model a method to work out a box of maximum volume for any size of rectangle.

The activity sheet outlines the task for students.

The first set of teachers' notes...
