A-level and Further Maths - resources from the subject associations
All the subject associations have resources which are available to non-members, although all of them would urge you to explore the benefits of actually becoming a member!
The Mathematical Association (MA)
The MA has a long list of applications of mathematics which have been gathered from a variety of places to provide examples of the use of A-level mathematics outside the classroom. There is a mathematical content section where the resources are listed under the A-level or Further Maths topic followed by a section listing the actual resources. These resources include Tractive Effort, Acceleration and Braking, which illustrates the use of algebra and functions, Mathematical Modelling in Insurance, and Real-Life Examples in Medical Statistics, where the Poisson distribution is used in a maternity hospital to work out how many births would be expected during a night.
The MA also has an extensive list of revision resources. This includes Advanced Revision Ideas which gives an introduction to the section and gives two members’ approaches to revision, and a list of some useful websites, while Advanced Revision Resources gives a list of some useful websites and revision resources.
The Association of Teachers of Mathematics (ATM)
The ATM site includes a large collection of spreadsheet files, including Friction, Resolving Forces and Projectiles.
There is also a section on Dynamic Geometry, including Modelling Motion Using Dynamic Geometry by Geoff Wake, and An Alternative Introduction to Proof in Dynamic Geometry by Michael de Villiers.
The ATM also publishes many resources, such as Reaching the Core of AS Mathematics.
The National Association for Numeracy and Mathematics in Colleges (NANAMIC)
The NANAMIC site includes many resources for A-level and Further Maths teachers, as well as those teaching at other levels post-16. They include a full description of a day with Susan Wall looking at creative learning activities, and PowerPoints and Excel files written by Bob Francis, to help in teaching A-level Statistics and Decision Maths.
The NANAMIC website also includes a comprehensive list of weblinks to external sites.
