Science & Plants for Schools (SAPS)

SAPS produce a range of useful resources for both Primary and Secondary Science, offering a wide selection of activities for use with pupils. There are plenty of opportunities here for learning mathematics outside the classroom, exploiting links with the science curriculum.

The ideas in the mainly primary booklets Plants for primary pupils, include practical experiments with simple home-made materials. These provide lots of opportunities for real measurement, problem solving and systematic investigation, as well as graph work, patterns and simple algebra.

Secondary mathematics teachers should find ideas for cross-curricular working with science colleagues to explore linked areas of the mathematics curriculum, especially in data-handling and measurement.
