A World Full of Data: Statistics Opportunities across A-level Subjects

This report considers the teaching and learning of statistics across a number of A-level subjects other than mathematics. The role of statistics is considered in biology, business studies, chemistry, computing, economics, geography, history, physics, psychology and sociology. The report contains twenty two...

Hot mug challenge

The video and worksheet set out a measurement challenge for students that can be carried out at home or in school. Students use four different drinks containers to measure the rate of cooling of hot water to investigate how the material and use of a lid affects the process. A stainless steel insulated cup with...

CPD taster - Maths for A level biology

This is a CPD taster created to give teachers a better understanding of what to expect when joining one of our secondary mathematics in science courses. Below you will find a video and a task for you to do in your own time. Once you have done the activity, ...

Smart Sensor Communications

This video, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), features physiotherapist Jeroen Bergman who works with smart sensors at Charing Cross Hospital. He explains how a variety of sensors are used to analyse patients’ movements. Development work is...

Virtual Sport

In this video from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), engineers explain the technology behind Wii controllers. Micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) is the technology behind games console controllers and products like air bags. New applications for...

Inputs and Outputs of Design

Using the context of the Nintendo Wii, this starter activity develops an understanding of the terms system, input, process, output and signal, and asks students to identify these features in some common products which are shown in the presentation.

...

Exploring Binary Code

In this activity, students investigate the use of binary numbers to explain how devices can be turned on or off. After a short introduction to binary numbers, students work in teams of four to demonstrate the number sequence from 1 to 15.

...

Input, Process and Output

This resource looks at what properties of infra-red make it so useful in gaming technology? Students develop a working prototype of a simple infra-red electronic circuit, identify an input and an output and test the performance of the circuit. They then explain how the findings of their research could affect their...

Numeracy Refresher

Mathcentre provide this numeracy refresher resource, which was developed and trialled by staff of the University of Birmingham Careers Centre and subsequently used widely throughout the HE Sector. There are sections which review decimals, fractions, averages, percentages and ratios, making it a useful resource for...

Stuck in the Mud

Aimed at Key Stage Two, this resource looks at the problem of launching RNLI lifeboats from different types of terrain in all kinds of weather. Linked to work on forces, shape and space and design and technology, it introduces the concept that both force and area affect the pressure applied on a surface. Working...

Propulsion

In this activity, students consider energy transfers and calculate work done, speed, power and efficiency in order to compare two RNLI lifeboats in a rescue situation. They then go on to explore how much energy can be saved by restricting the speed during non-emergency situations. Students work out how the...
