Mathematical Miscellany #16

A resource miscellany this week, a reminder of where to find excellent teaching resources provided by the examination boards and also from MEI.

MEI, AQA, Edexcel and OCR (also Eduqas, part of WJEC) provide excellent support for teachers. With GCSE and A Level subject content now the same for all the examination boards we have an excellent library of resources to use irrespective of the specification chosen for public examinations.

MEI have produced such a valuable collection for teachers with the latest addition to their work on Problem Solving. See their Problem Solving examples and solutions. As well as all the problems and solutions with very valuable suggestions and commentary, MEI have provided a guide to support teachers with the problem solving content of GCSE (14-16) and A Level (16-18).

At A level MEI’s Interactive Scheme of work includes a resource for each section of the course. See also, MEI on integrating technology into your scheme of work which includes many calculator, Desmos and GeoGebra tasks.

See also MEI Free Reources and a page added to the GeoGebra series on the MEI GeoGebra Institute.

  • Teaching and Learning Materials – A Level 16+ a wonderful and growing collection
  • Signing up to the wonderful Mathematics Emporium is highly recommended, note that it is a free website intended for the use of teachers of mathematics in secondary schools, regardless of what board you useRegister for an account and ensure you supply a correct centre e-mail address in your name for verification, your centre name and centre number. In the GCE AS/A Level Mathematics cabinet you will find documents for GCE 2017 including baseline tests and unit tests, also Transiton materials for GCSE to A Level.

One comment on “Mathematical Miscellany #16

  1. Lots to go at here.
    Now we have the same syllabus for A level for all exam boards why do
    we have to have separate exams?

    I found this amusing, from page 6:

    Simplify 2/(3x + 3) + 5/(x squared – 1)
    The simple simplification is “leave it alone”, as there are 13 characters
    now, and seventeen when “simplified”.
    A better use of algebra is to simplify as 3.166/(x – 1) – 2.5/(x + 1), which
    is a pair of rectangular hyperbolae.

    Looks better when not using Notepad !
