This is a topical PowerPoint lesson resource focussed on some of the mathematics involved in the current Covid19 pandemic. The resource is aimed at teachers but could also be used by learners for home learning.
The resource covers the topics of indices (powers), arithmetic/geometric series and data representation (graphs). The topics covered go up to Higher/Advanced Higher maths level, but this resource would be suitable for able S3/S4 pupils because the more advanced concepts are presented in an accessible way. It could be a fun and topical way to give students a chance for success at topics that they wouldn’t normally see until much more advanced levels.
