Looking at theBooks (free) page, for puzzle fans perhaps try Henry Ernest Dudeney’s puzzle collection.
Looking at the free Kindle offerings, these include Mind Hurdles: Mystery Number – a set of ‘number mysteries’, one or more of which would make a good lesson starter and Henry Ernest Dudeney’s – Amusements in Mathematics a puzzle collection (with solutions). The first set of puzzles will offer a trip down memory lane for those who remember money – pre-decimal! There are several categories of puzzles available.
And do make sure you have Colin Foster’s KS3 books in your collection.
Nrich will again publish a challenge a day throughout the UK summer break. Every weekday from 18 July to 2 September, a new interactive game or puzzle will appear on this Primary page and this Secondary page. Once students have tried the day’s challenge, they will be able to compare their approach to previously published students’ solutions.
Perhaps try some curve stitching on Transum. Also, on Transum, you will find School Holiday Maths Activities; this collection has many activities to encourage students to continue their learning during the holidays. These are categorised, and we have a lovely mixture of learning, puzzles, and games to make students think. There is a great deal of choice here. See also the full list of all fun maths activities.
Following each puzzle, you can find a discussion on the puzzle. Have a look at this puzzle and discussion for example.
In response to this puzzle, you can see various solutions, including an Autograph file created by Rob Smith. Rob has this up to change both squares and you can move also move a point on the smaller square.
The collection includes from Cambridge PhD student Omar Wagih, ‘Guess the Correlation‘, a rather addictive game with a purpose – Omar Wagih is collecting the data on the guesses collected and using it to analyse how we perceive correlations in scatter plots. Select About to read the rules and further details.
From Mark Dawes (@mdawesmdawes) for Core Maths comes a brilliant new site, What the Graph. This is a new website for Core Maths critical analysis. ‘What the graph’ is a collection of graphs from the media for students to analyse. Read how to use the tasks and check the very comprehensive Teachers’ notes for each resource. There are already several resources available and the collection will grow over the summer and beyond. What the Graph has been added to this page on Core Maths Resources.
My page on November Examinations 2022 has been updated recently; Mr Watts on ExamQ has already added the advance GCSE information for November.
On ExamQ from Mr Watts you can quickly search for Edexcel Maths GCSE and A-Level exam questions. You can choose from GCSE Foundation or Higher, AS or A level, you can also select by exam series, paper, area and topic. Selecting November 2022 Advanced Information displays a menu of questions by paper based on the Advance Information.
The interface is very clear indeed, easily display the questions or mark schemes.
For the last few days of term if you are still at school, these ideas for End of Term Activities may be useful.
Note that with the recent publication of advance information for the November examinations a new page, Examinations – Mathematics November 2022 has been created which will be updated as more information becomes available.
