Globalised Ethical Awareness Skills and Attributes Map.pdf
ALPS has produced three Common Competency Maps which can be used across 16 health and social care professions to assess competence. The Maps cover Communication, Team Working and Ethical Practice. ALPS has received feedback from other professions who have expressed an interest in using the Maps to demonstrate skills and abilities of students. It is with this in mind that the following Globalised Ethical Awareness Skills and Attributes Map is produced for use outside health and social care. It is
This is the fifth and final unit in the MSXR209 series on mathematical modelling. In this unit we revisit the model developed in the first unit of this series on pollution in the Great Lakes of North America. Here we evaluate and revise the original model by comparing its predictions against data from the lakes before finally reflecting on the techniques used. This unit assumes you have studied Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes (MSXR209_1), Analysing skid marks (MSXR209_2), Developing model
History of mathematics and X
The History of Mathematics and X "is an initiative that aims to offer mathematical histories for various topics, x. Each topic is covered in a talk at the University of Nottingham that is available to view online, in an article for iSquared Magazine and is accompanied by a companion podcast released by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications through the Travels in a Mathematical World podcast." Two topics are currently (May 2010) available - cryptography and gravity. These resources ha
"This module introduces mathematical analysis building upon the experience of limits of sequences and properties of real numbers and on calculus. It includes limits and continuity of functions between Euclidean spaces, differentiation and integration." It is part of the University of Nottingham open courseware initiative (U-NOW) and was written by Dr Joel Feinstein from the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Nottingham. The resource is available under a Creative Commons England

What teachers learn from children's mathematical arguments in discussion: moving to a new pedagogica
This resource is a paper presented at the British Educational Research Association Annual Conference, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, September 2003. It reports part of a research study of teachers’ reflection on and development of mathematical discussion in the classroom.
Modelling heat transfer
This unit is the fourth in the MSXR209 series of five units on mathematical modelling. In this unit you will be taken through the whole modelling process in detail, from creating a first simple model, through evaluating it, to the subsequent revision of the model by changing one of the assumptions. The problem that will be examined is one based on heat transfer. This unit assumes you have studied Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes (MSXR209_1), Analysing skid marks (MSXR209_2) and Developing
Primary ICT: Whiteboard Maths – Eight Lesson Starts
This is one of four video clips on Teachers TV providing starter activities for mathematics and literacy. This 15 minute video clip provides eight lesson starter activities for KS2 mathematics lessons. Each of the eight clips presents a dramatised situation that highlights a mathematical problem involving one or more of these mathematical topics that can be used in the main part of the maths lesson: angles, fractions and percentages, multiplication and division, and volume. These clips are suppo
This unit looks at a wide variety of ways of comparing prices and the construction of a price index. You will also look at the Retail Price Index (RPI) and the Consumer Price Index (CPI), indices used by the UK Government to calculate the percentage by which prices in general have risen over any given period. You wil also look at the important statistical and mathematical ideas that contribute to the construction of a price index.
TDA Standards case study: Identifying and supporting individual training needs in primary mathematic
A case study charting the experiences of a trainee on a primary PGCE programme, including the ways in which the provider tailored provision to identify and support individual training needs in primary mathematical subject knowledge.
NALDIC ITTSEAL: Making Maths curriculum more accessible: Strategies for children learning EAL
There are certain activities especially those relating to vocabulary associated with abstract concepts (e.g. problem solving) that some pupils learning EAL find challenging. We also know that all children develop their mathematical skills more when involved in inclusive collaborative activities, especially those that invite active participation. The key aim in this short guidance is to explore the role of children’s first languages in developing their understanding of abstract mathematical con
Hard to Teach – Secondary Maths Using ICT
The resource is a Teachers TV video highlighting a Mathematical Association project developed to support mathematics teachers tackling hard to teach subjects through the use of ICT. The programme features three different teachers working in their classrooms looking at different KS3 topics of mathematics, supported by two project leaders from the Mathematical Association.
7.6 Producing synchroton radiation in a laboratory
Active galaxies provide a prime example of high energy processes operating in the Universe. This unit gives an overview of active galaxies, including the supermassive black holes that power the engines at their centres, and the emission processes by which we detect and study them. It also gives practice in mathematical techniques for analysing data and theoretical models.
Three essays on bank efficiency
Since commercial banks play important roles in the financial markets, it is important to evaluate whether banks operate efficiently. Moreover, given increased competition from non-bank financial institutions, commercial banks should operate more efficiently than they did previously. Commercial banks might operate more efficiently if they have superior information. If this is true, bank size should not matter to the operation of the bank. Thus, as long as the bank has superior information, it wil
Resource Review - Secondary Maths
The resource forms part of a series of reviews for Teachers TV. This particular resource is a review of three CD ROMs selected by a head of maths covering a diverse range of mathematical areas. Two of the CD ROM reviews are accompanied by short video clips showing classroom teachers using and discussing their use in schools.
Architectural Computing in School and Real Designing
The existing system of architectural education ( including computer ) as has shown practice has appeared not absolutly perfect. It not capable to dynamic changes, active introduction of a new engineering and computer technologies, to realization about of the inquiries of a modern time. It suggest of a way of search of new models of computer training. The computer education is represented by us as certain a universal system, which permits to solve the problem of arcitectural education at a higher
How and why we do mathematical proofs
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in Autumn Semester 2009/10 The aim of this short unit is to motivate students to understand why we might want to do proofs (why proofs are important and how they can help us) and to help students with some of the relatively routine aspects of doing proofs. In particular, the student will learn the following: * proofs can help you to really see why a result is true; * problems that are easy to state
Gingerbread Man Math
Gingerbread men and gingerbread houses enjoy special popularity around the holidays, but many of these gingerbread activities are timeless and complement literature titles that teachers use at the beginning of school or after the holidays. It's very easy to incorporate mathematics into a study of gingerbread men, and students will enjoy the data collection activities and games while learning math skills and deepening their understanding of important mathematical concepts.
