For a selection of short videos for the Mathematics Classroom try the Class Clips from BBC Learning Zone. Choose Primary (5-11) or Secondary (11-18) a subject and a topic. Note that each video has several keywords making searching possible.
A job for the summer holidays – make it easier to find resources on this site!
With this mission in mind I have added a Search page to highlight the Search function.
On the subject of searching, I recommend both Evernote and Diigo – I use both. This morning I was thinking about a resource I need for September (I think I need a holiday!) – for a making polyhedra session and remembered I had bookmarked it on Diigo; so from approximately 2000 bookmarks I had what I wanted in seconds!
In the UK schools are finishing for the summer, some have already completed school for the year.
What to do for those last lessons?
No videos – though I could make an exception for the counting chimps, a video I was introduced to by Alex Bellos at the SSAT conference which he included in his session and shows the astonishing recall of a chimp – compare the human!
Some Mathematical games and puzzles perhaps? There are plenty to choose from.
This is the first in a series of examples showing the syntax to use for WolframAlpha.
These examples are intended for 11-14 year old students.
All the examples will be added to the WolframAlpha pages where you will find further information.
