Mathematical Team Races 17 Exciting Activities for Ages 13-16 by Paul Hambleton

A team race is a classic idea - your team wins by answering all the questions correctly in the fastest time! Students enjoy the activity immensely and the quality of learning and discussion taking place is very high. The element of competition means students must answer questions as quickly as possible, but accuracy is also essential as students need correct answers in order to progress and win the race. Student feedback is excellent. Contents include: percentage problems quadratics algebraic fractions direct and inverse proportion solving equations rearranging formulae simultaneous equations quadratic sequences Pythagoras Theorem right-angle trigonometry sine and cosine rules solving trigonometric equations probability Active learning strategies are becoming ever more popular in schools wishing to give students not only a more enjoyable experience but also a deeper understanding of mathematics through collaborative learning and more independent learning, and this type of activity can encourage this. They can be easily differentiated. Ideal for use in revision or other consolidation exercises. They are also great fun for after school clubs such as maths clubs, seeking to run short activities. Maths days or maths weeks will be greatly enhanced by their inclusion.
