Enrichment Project

Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view

This is it!!

I did feel that due to the fact that the A Level students were not able to be involved in this exercise, it remained very dry for me. I think that few of us get much out of cutting and pasting other people's work into a document and presenting it as our own.

In contrast, when we went round and viewed the other groups' work, I found it quite interesting - some topics more than others.

Subject Knowledge Development with RWP

Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view

THis was our creation yesterday morning. It looks good, it was a bit of fun to do, but I felt it was time consuming and not much maths was learnt. The earlier task of a 'Treasure Hunt' type exercise was preferable and easily differentiable.

Semi–regular tessellations

Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view

I enjoyed this task. I think our Group work quite well together when in discussion. Nobody dominates, no non-contributors. The difficult part was the Lesson Plan. Lots to make us think but not many definite answers yet.

Lesson Outline – Linear Equations

Group 2

Lesson Outline - Linear Equations

Aim: to understand all aspects of straight line graphs

Lesson Objective: to be able to plot straight line graphs for given equations (by using table of values)

Prior Vocabulary: x-axis, y-axis, co-ordinates, table of values, x-value, y-value

New Vocabulary: intercept, x-intercept, y-intercept, equation of a line

Possible misconceptions: all graphs go upwards from left to right,

all graphs are in the +ve x/ +ve y quadrant, all graphs are straight,

all graphs start at/go through (0,0), straight line graphs are finite
