MEI and Casio are working with a group of teachers across England to develop their use of technology in A level Mathematics, including the use of graphical calculators.
These teachers have trialled resources for using technology in the teaching and learning of A level Mathematics and have been supporting other teachers in developing these skills.
The teachers in the network have trialled and fed back on a series of classroom tasks. The tasks have been improved based on their feedback.
|Surds and indices (AS)|
|Quadratic functions (AS)||Plot y=ax2+bx+c in modify mode and vary a, b and c.|
|Equations and inequalities (AS)||Intersection of a line and a curve
|Coordinate geometry (AS)||Perpendicular lines|
|Trigonometry (AS)||Solution of trig equations|
|Polynomials (AS)||The Factor Theorem|
|Graphs and transformations (AS)||Functions - Transformations|
|The binomial expansion (AS)|
|Differentiation (AS)||Exploring the gradient on a curve
Introduction to Stationary Points
|Integration (AS)||Area under a curve|
|Exponentials and logarithms (AS)||Gradients of tangents to the exponential function
Reduction to linear form
|Data collection (AS)|
|Data processing, presentation and interpretation (AS)||Basic statistics and charts|
|The binomial distribution (AS)||The Binomial Distribution|
|Statistical hypothesis testing using the binomial distribution (AS)|
|Trigonometry||Trig equations in radians|
|Sequences and series||Sum of an AP
Sum of a GP
|Functions||The Modulus Function
|Trigonometry identities||Double Angle formulae
|Further Differentiation||Differentiating trigonometric functions|
|Integration||Gradient of tangent to y=ekx
Gradient of tangent to y=lnx
|Parametric equations||Tangents to parametric curves|
|Numerical methods||Change of sign
Fixed point iterations
|Probability distributions||The Normal Distribution|
In the initial phase of the network MEI worked with the teachers to support them in using technology in the classroom and then use these experiences to deliver training to a group of their peers in an existing mathematics teachers' network.
