Nuffield Foundation Applying Mathematical Processes Investigations and Explorations
The Nuffield Foundation have released a series of resources to support teachers in the teaching of applying mathematical processes. The resources are divided between ‘investigations’ and ‘practical explorations’. These remind me of the well-known Bowland Maths resources in their style and scope. They are certainly worth checking out. I think my favourite idea from the practical explorations is ‘How far can I get from here in an hour?’ Giving pupils access to timetables, Google Maps etc, they can apply so many different maths concepts to find out the furthest they could get away in an hour. All resources come with pupil copies and teacher’s notes. These are lessons ready to go!
