The GCSE Problem Solving Questions of the Day – Compilation available free on TES Resources. The booklet contains over 50 problem solving questions suitable for KS3 and GCSE classes, answers are also provided.
Answering a question from a reader on unique triangles on a 4×4 GeoBoard, I have updated GeoBoard Activities to include the solution to this and also added several new activities, including the use of GeoGebra.
Staying with the subject of GeoGebra, I discovered some very nice resources by Tom Carpenter, I do like his Line Graph worksheet which demonstrate how to draw a line graph and/or how to interpret a line graph.
As I mentioned in last week’s post on GeoGebra, even if you are not familiar with GeoGebra, there are so many resources already available ready to use.
I have mentioned the excellent PhET simulations before. This on Least Squares Regression provides a very easy to use demonstration. Try and find the line of best fit then see how closely your line matches the actual line.
On this subject you can also very easily use GeoGebra, Desmos, or WolframAlpha for regression, full details with examples are provided here.
