Section 4: Getting Started
This section of the Teachers Evaluating and Assessing Mathematics (TEAM) project, produced by the Mathematics Centre at the University of Chichester, contains ideas, approaches, lists of useful resources and teachers' comments about their personal experiences.
The aim is to develop a whole approach and attitude to learning mathematics by initiating and sustaining 'extended' or 'project work'. It is closely linked to Section 3: Changing the Climate.
Dotty paper activity 1 is an open-ended task with little guidance whilst Dotty paper activity 2 describes in detail the process of working through an investigation from a given starting point linking perimeter and area of irregular shapes.
40 starter activites for mathematical investigation are outlined, as are a number of practical project starting points.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
