We’re delighted to be working with the Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS) on an exciting project to develop a suite of maths teaching and learning resources to engage young people with climate issues and show the relevance of maths to climate change and meteorology.
The resources aim to empower students to understand information and data, and to highlight how maths skills can be used to examine and evaluate issues and draw evidence-based conclusions. There are different versions for use in Key Stage 3 and Core Maths lessons. The Core Maths versions are also suitable for the SQA’s Applications of Mathematics qualification.
The first set of resources, released this week, concentrates on trees and their role in carbon capture and storage. The Trees for Net Zero resources are designed to be delivered over one or two lessons, looking at the topic in depth. The Trees and Carbon Capture resources provide standalone activities that can be delivered as part of a lesson.
Each set contains session notes, presentations, and printable sheets for students.
Two more sets of resources will follow in the New Year – one focusing on Electric Vehicles and the other on Extreme Weather.
