On Saturday Ed Hall and I led a session at MathsConf13 in Sheffield.
As usual the whole conference was great, well attended and we managed to fit in a meeting with our publisher too. The keynote this time around was particularly funny as it was delivered by Matt Parker (@standupmaths)
The Prezi from our session is available here.
The resources used are all available from the links below:
- Index Equations Card Sort
- Binomial Distribution Card Sort
- Population Growth Activity
- Binomial Probabilities Geogebra.
- Logarithmic Spiral Geogebra.
- Trapezium Rule applet.
- Numbas distribution questions.
These resources have all been developed to support the teaching of A-Level Mathematics and are especially useful for those using the Tarquin Group textbooks. The resources listed above, however, will always be available for free.
During the session we asked delegates to show the derivative of the naturla logarithm function using the figure below.
This can be done in the following way:
We hope you found the session useful. Please get in touch with any comments, especially if you use the resources.
