# Bring on the Maths

…and much more!

In a post in September 2014, I wrote:

I must recommend the free samples from Bring On the Maths, the Core 3 activity – Logarithmic equations worked really well with my Year 13 class and next week I’ll use the C4 Binomial Expansion resource when we are talking about the validity of a given expansion. I have used the Trigonometric Ratios resource before – and will again; there are several other great resources in that list of samples – explore!

Free access is available to the complete set of these resources on the oldKangaroo Maths site. Log in with the user and password as above to access all the resources. This will give access to all the activities for students from Key Stage 2 right through to A Level – note that this being the old site, the resources are aligned to earlier schemes of learning…

# Have you seen…?

MEI’s fun and free summer challenge is back again this year.

To quote MEI

MEI’s fun and free summer challenge is back for 2020!

Our Calculator Crunch is a fun way to continue to engage Year 6s with maths whilst also developing their confidence with calculators, ready for maths at secondary school. The activities in the challenge provide extra practice for Year 6s and 7s in key areas of the maths curriculum.

Parents and carers can use the challenge activities with their children at home, and teachers can incorporate them into work they are setting for pupils either in school or remotely.

On each weekday from 15-25 June @MEIMaths will tweet a  question for children to work on. Each question will involve using a calculator (basic or scientific) to solve an interesting problem. The problems are designed to deepen children’s mathematical thinking skills.

# International-Mindedness–is it a practical teaching approach? — The Glorification of Thinking

[This is a teacher-learner’s reflection on a term “international-mindedness” and some epistemological engagement with an assigned reading for completing her IB educator certification course] In my first draft of teaching philosophy, which was completed as an initial exploration of the IB education, I illustrated my working understanding of “international-mindedness” (IM) with classroom experiences. I highlighted […]

# What is A Level

In Cambridge Curriculum , the Advanced level (A level) is usually studied over a two-year period and is split into two parts — Advanced Subsidiary (AS level, year 12) and A2 (year 13). A student has to study both the levels to achieve a complete A level certificate.

# Difference between IGCSE and GCSE

International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations, which is an internationally recognized qualification for students in the 14-16 age group. “IGCSE is different from the GCSE in the sense that this is more attuned to the needs of the international community, it’s a modified English curriculum. GCSE has more UK specific topics for its examinations whereas IGCSE covers more international topics.

GCSE – Local schools in UK follows.

IGCSE – Followed internationally

# Key Stages in UK Curriculum

Cambridge Curriculum or The National Curriculum of England is framed on the basis of four key stages —

key stage one: ages five to seven (years one to two)

key stage two: ages 7-11 (years three to six)

key stage three: ages 11-14 (years seven to nine)

key stage four: ages 14-16 (years 10-11)

# Inverse Variation

The statement ” y varies inversely as x means that when x increases,y decreases by the same factor. In other words, the expression xy is constant:

Example :

In a factory, 10 men can do the job in 30 days. How many days it will take if 20 men do the same job?

Here, when the man power increases, they will need less than 30 days to complete the same job. So, this is an inverse variation.

Inverse Variation online Worksheet

# Direct Variation

The statement ” y varies directly as x ,” means that when x increases,y increases by the same factor. In other words, y and x always have the same ratio:

Example

If a gallon of milk costs $3, and I buy 1 gallon, the total cost is$3. If I buy 10 gallons, the price is \$30. In this example the total cost of milk and the number of gallons purchased are subject to direct variation — the ratio of the cost to the number of gallons is always 3.
