5 things to do this fortnight

orange circles

Explore the interactive article, The answer is ‘Parabola’...now, what’s the question? in MTinteractive - for example, model slicing through carrot - and then add your own ideas on the MTi forum. MTi is an interactive web publication that is complementary to Mathematics Teaching, the journal of the Association of Teachers of Mathematics.

green circles

Take a look at bshm Education, a website of the British Society for the History of Mathematics aiming to inspire you to use history in the teaching of mathematics. The secondary pages summarise why, how and when bringing the history of mathematics into your classroom will enhance your teaching and your students’ learning. There will soon be free downloadable resources, and you will also find links to resources at other sites.

purple circles

Watch a Teachers tv video in which a Year 9 class of students use computer software to explore mathematical relationships that they find in a playground. The students and their teacher talk about how these activities help them learn, and why they enjoy them.

blue circles

Have you considered booking a Hands-On Maths Roadshow from the Millennium Mathematics Project? You can download a Roadshow package of NRICH activities that are linked to the Hands-On Maths Roadshow. They are designed to stimulate curiosity, encourage creativity and develop strategic thinking.

You could unwind by folding an Origami cube.
