Mathematical Miscellany #26

Chalkface Classwiz Simulator
From The Chalkface comes a brilliant spreadsheet that emulates the statistical functions of the Casio ClassWiz. The spreadsheet includes details which allow students to interpret each of the different modes, the List function is also included.
Direct link to the calculator. I have added this to the ClassWiz page, one of the Lesson Planning series.

Jack Brown teaching vdeosJack Brown has now completed teaching videos for all three papers of Edexcel’s sample assessment material. A very busy man – thank you, Jack! The easiest way to navigate Jack’s thousands of videos covering the complete A Level specification is through his website,

Jack is also creating Further Maths teaching videos; you can use this link to take you directly to his live Google Doc that has the new A-Level Further Maths specification and the teaching videos Jack has made so far. I see many useful videos on Proof, including the use of Induction for proofs of divisibility. I have added these resources to the Further Maths series of pages, see Teaching Resources.

On the subject of Further Maths teaching resources, thank you to Tom Button for sharing MEI GeoGebra Tasks for AS/A Level Further Maths
From The GeoGebra Institute of MEI, Use of GeoGebra in Further Maths: examples.

These can also be found on the Teaching Resources page for Further Maths (still a work in progress, this is being updated regularly.) Note also the addition of AMSP ResourcesYou can register your school free with AMSP for many benefits and resources. A free student account will enable students to access a comprehensive set of short videos to support the learning of AS/A level Further Mathematics.

David Morse has announced his new website. This is an outstanding and comprehensive set of resources for Primary and Secondary. Note What’s New at the top of the site where you can keep an eye on the latest additions to the collection. The Click-to-zoom feature of the Worksheet collection works so well for display on screen.
