### reSolve: Rectilinear Polygons

In this sequence of three lessons, students use geometric reasoning to establish relationships between angles in polygons and go on to make generalisations using algebraic expressions. Students explore and enumerate right angles in a series of rectilinear polygons and generalise their findings. They then explore the number ...

### Burning Down

This resource is a web page containing a challenging problem solving task that requires an understanding of rate and proportion. It can be solved in a number of ways for example graphically, using fractions or equations and all involve reasoning. A printable resource and solution is also available to support the task. This ...

### reSolve: Location - My Place in Space

This series of two lessons explores locating points and calculating distances using the Cartesian plane. In the first lesson, students locate and describe points on the Cartesian plane using ordered pairs of coordinates. They then search for squares on a given plane and find the side lengths of the squares. In the second ...

### Tuning and Ratio

This resource is a web page containing a challenging problem solving task that requires an understanding of ratios and logarithms. It explains how intervals such as an octave corresponds to a particular ratio of string lengths which produce the notes. Two types of tuning based on ratios; The Pythagorean Scale and Just Intonation ...

### Round and Round and Round

This resource is a web page containing an interactive that can be used to explore the relationships between the angles of turn that produce the same vertical and horizontal displacements. The task provides an opportunity to apply their understanding of division and recurring decimals. A 'Getting started' page, printable ...

### reSolve: Real World Algebra: Linear Functions

This sequence of two lessons explores real world, algebraic, numeric and graphical representations of linear functions, focussing on the gradient of linear functions. Students use images of everyday objects and inscribe straight lines, then use Geogebra to explore the algebraic representation of their lines. Each lesson ...

### 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. In the activities, teachers use different representations ...
