This activity is suitable for learners and parents/carers who are based around the Leith Walk/Calton Hill area, and gives ideas for mathematical tasks thoughts you can do whilst out and about enjoying a (socially distanced!) walk. It is probably most suitable for learners in early secondary school.

Vectors Puzzle Worksheets

Vectors Puzzle Worksheets

These two worksheets give learners the chance for learners to explore the topic of vectors which gets introduced during the National 5 Maths course.  Learners will need to have experience of vectors to be able to attempt these tasks. This resource would be suitable for teachers, or potentially for learners who are already familiar with the topic to do self-study.

Tangrams

Tangrams

A tangram is a fun maths puzzle made up of seven shapes that can be arranged to form many different designs. Cut out the tangram pieces and then see if you can work out how to rearrange it to make the shapes shown. This activity is suitable for most primary and younger secondary students and parents/carers might enjoy to do them with their children.

Maths Puzzles: Graph Theory (Networks and Maps)

Maths Puzzles: Graph Theory (Networks and Maps)

These resources is a set of games, puzzles and worksheets which provide a basic introduction to the mathematical topic of graph theory, which has many real-life applications but isn’t often covered in maths in school, so this resource would provide for interesting extension tasks for secondary school pupils and older Primary school pupils. Graph theory has real-life applications to the maths of maps and network diagrams; and in this resource there is also a very topical activity applying graph theory to the spread of a global virus. Further activities are themed around transport networks and city maps.

Maths at Work

Maths at Work

This series consists of five videos about how Maths is used in the World of Work.  They are aimed at S1-S4 students, but might be suitable for younger or older students because the puzzles do not require much background knowledge.
