Algebra four

This is an interactive game for two students in which they solve algebraic equations, similar to 'Connect four'. The players can choose from problems that are one- or two-step, quadratic, have distributive properties or have variables on both sides, and more than one problem type can be chosen. The length of time each player ...

Maths of mouse plagues

How do pests such as mice reach plague proportions? The answer is that they can grow at an exponential rate. Watch this clip to see how that happens, but first enjoy (or squirm at) some footage of a real mouse plague.

EagleCat: parabola

Explore the graphs of quadratic equations in two forms: (a) the turning point form, y = a(x – h)² + k, and (b) the intercept form, y = (x – a)(x – b). Observe changes to the turning point and the shape of parabolic graphs through various transformations. Alternately, change the equation and observe changes in the x-intercepts ...

Secondary mathematics: different representations

These seven learning activities, which focus on 'representations' using a variety of tools (software) and devices (hardware), illustrate the ways in which content, pedagogy and technology can be successfully and effectively integrated in order to promote learning.

Exponential growth and doubling time

This resource aims to guide and support a mathematics teacher of Year 10 across three main areas as the class explores the mathematics of exponential growth. The contexts used are compound interest, animal and human population growth, and the growth (and decay) of bacteria populations.

Calculations involving exponential growth: world population

Recently the world's population passed seven billion and it continues to grow by 200,000 people every day. Listen to some reasons why our population is growing at such a rate, and the strain this will put on resources such as food and water. This clip provides context for calculations involving exponential growth.
