Want a POWERPOINT writing?

Discussion in 'Mathematics' started by valed, Apr 14, 2006.

  1. I'm bored!

    If anyone wants a powerpoint writing on a mtahs subject, post here!

    Give me as much detail as you wish - the level, GCSE tier etc

    I will pick the first three that interest me!!

    Oh and yes I can make em! Check out Simultaneous Equations on Tandy's site here http://www.emaths.co.uk/number.htm

    Told you I was bored!

    Are you going to upload them to the Resource Bank valed?
     
  4. NO WAY !!! Even at these early days, it doesn't look too organised.

    I will post them on a site for people to download though - either at school or on omy own site which I am presently rewriting.

    All free anyway

    I was thinking the same thing about lack of organisation of the Resource Bank. It is searchable but still doesn't look very inviting.

    There are lots of PowerPoints on topics around, what about a more general one?

    Study Skills in Mathematics

    or Revision tips?

    Something I'd be interested in for GCSE students would be a presentation on how to check at the end of an exam
    eg
    check equations by substituting the answers
    check subtractions by adding
    check algebraic simplifying by trying some numbers
    check all the way through for units
    check all the way through for significant figures and decimal places
    check size of answers is reasonable eg estimate calculations, is angle acute/obtuse/reflex etc
    check enlargements by measuring some corresponding sides

    I'm making this up as I go along, but I've often thought it would be helpful to have a proper list of such things.
    Quite a challenge, and I'd understand completely if you decided that eating chocolate was suddenly more important!

    How about units of measure...estimating etc. with real life examples, useful applications and some history maybe and which are mass, length etc.

    Thinking average yea 7....low intermediate GCSE...

    Extension work....Metric Imperial conversion........dimensions.....compound measures.....thinking better intermediate sets.


    In fact everything possible on units on one powerpoint!!!!!!!!

    Is this interesting or will I have to do some work next week?
     
  8. no thanks

    How about a low level colourful ppt on bar graphs and pictograms pease?

    Or one on ratios revision? Including word problems.

    Or one on finding the start or finish time given the duration?

    Hope you feel less bored soon,
    Pix

     
  10. pease??!!!!
     
  11. Well, I am trying to avoid general topics / revision technique things and concentrate on specific topics at a given level / tier.

    Otherwise it can become too big and not as useful in teaching, also not as transferrable e.g. I have written gcse material only top use it with Year 9's.

    So, go on..... pick a topic

    Oh and StudentsRule, go out and play, enjoy the sunshine ... or revise for your SATs if you are in year 9

    The two suggestions in previous post are nothing to do with each other!

    Well the only link between them is Casy thinking about what's coming in the next week or two!
     
  15. Circle theorems is good for me!!!

    End next week will be done

    Wow!

    Don't suppose you could have it done by Thursday?! :)

    Only joking!

    Thank you so much for all your resources Valed.

    PS - I like your simultaneous equations - nice clear design and explanations...and no silly flying in stuff with daft noises!
     
  17. Casy!! You cheeky so and so.....

    OK - I'll try - but why Thursday?

    Thanks for comment re simultaneous equations - I never use noises [too distracting] or flashy colours [make ppt invisible in my room]

     
  18. CASY !! CIRCLE THEOREMS

    Look here !! http://www.btinternet.com/~mathsanswers/html/resources.html on my old Mathsanswers site [soon to be much trimmed and updated]

    I have produced the first part as an example of the style. Took about an hour but will be quicker now I have drawn the circle questions in Euklid.

    Euklid is a very good geometry software package - I can also make the files I'm writing available if you wish. Then you can get the pupils to actually move things around and see what happens.

    Let me know what you think

    Thursday, for my Year 10 just before lunch!

    Love it Valed - I like your style.

    I often use Sketchpad to illustrate the circle theorems - I could adds some hyperlinks from your PowerPoint.

    Brilliant - thank you.
     
  20. Casy - can't see that being a problem. Wednesday evening ok then !!!
