News from the LSIS STEM programme

The STEM Centre e-library
The new National STEM Centre e-library has been launched and there are many mathematical gems in the collection.

It’s full of activities for learners at all levels and many involve lots of online interactivity.

You can move a point around an Argand diagram and view (or hide) how the argument and modulus change, or rotate hexagons and fit them together to make the numbers match, or play pelmanism to match shapes with their names.

What about Working with Photos from Cre8ate which aims to develop an understanding of enlargement, aspect ratio and issues of accuracy, error, estimation and rounding?

There are many more from providers such as MEI, Subtangent, Smile, NRICH, the Shell Centre, Cre8ate and others.

You can search by subject, age range, publisher, publication year, type and format so you are sure to find things to add to your tool box for the coming year.

There are other STEM resources available from science and engineering, so you might for example investigate the Mathematics of Escalators on the London Underground from the Royal Academy of Engineering with your learners.

LSIS applications for funding will open again on Wednesday 1 September 2010 and close at midday on Friday 29 October 2010. A further funding round will follow in November 2010, with two more in 2011.
