I wouldn't use this type of activity. This starter has scored a mean of 3. Doing this activity once with a class helps students develop strategies. It is only when they do this activity a second time that they will have the opportunity to practise those strategies. That is when the learning is consolidated.

## Thanks for putting in the effort!

Equate board game Here's a great board game that will give any family with school-aged kids hours of worthwhile fun.

Christmas is a time for board games but this one will still be useful at any time of year. Games can be adapted to suit many levels of Mathematical ability. For Maths tutors working with just one or small groups of pupils this game has proved to be an excellent activity for a tutorial. Deciding on the best moves can spark pertinent discussions about mathematical concepts. Equate looks a bit like Scrabble--for aspiring mathematicians, that is. Designed by a real mathematician, it works like this: You put down tiles on a board and make points by correctly completing simple equations.

Your nine tiles include both numbers and mathematical symbols; you can add on to previous plays both vertically and horizontally. How Not To Be Wrong The maths we learn in school can seem like an abstract set of rules, laid down by the ancients and not to be questioned. In fact, Jordan Ellenberg shows us, maths touches on everything we do, and a little mathematical knowledge reveals the hidden structures that lie beneath the world's messy and chaotic surface.

In How Not to be Wrong, Ellenberg explores the mathematician's method of analyzing life, from the everyday to the cosmic, showing us which numbers to defend, which ones to ignore, and when to change the equation entirely. What more could the inquisitive adult want for Christmas?

This book makes a cosy, interesting read in front of the fire on those cold winter evenings. Graphic Display Calculator This handheld device and companion software are designed to generate opportunities for classroom exploration and to promote greater understanding of core concepts in the mathematics and science classroom.

TI-Nspire technology has been developed through sound classroom research which shows that "linked multiple representation are crucial in development of conceptual understanding and it is feasible only through use of a technology such as TI-Nspire, which provides simultaneous, dynamically linked representations of graphs, equations, data, and verbal explanations, such that a change in one representation is immediately reflected in the others.

For the young people in your life it is a great investment. Bought as a Christmas present but useful for many years to come as the young person turns into an A-level candidate then works their way through university.How to Solve a Cubic Equation. The first time you encounter a cubic equation (which take the form ax3 + bx2 + cx + d = 0), it may seem more or less unsolvable.

However, the method for solving cubics has actually existed for centuries!. Write an equation for the cubic polynomial function whose graph has zeroes at 2, 3, and 5. • Can any of the Get the answers you need, now! 1. Log in Join now 1. Log in For a polynomial, if x=a is a zero of the function, then (x−a) is a factor of the function.

The term multiplicity, refers to the number of times that its associated /5(13). Page 1 of 2 Chapter 6 Polynomials and Polynomial Functions POLYNOMIAL MODELING WITH TECHNOLOGY In Examples 1 and 3 you found a cubic model that exactly fits a set of data points.

In many real-life situations, you cannot find a simple model to fit data points exactly. Use Desmos to help you write the equation of a degree 5 polynomial function with roots at $(-1,0),(0,2),\text{and },(0,3)$ with multiplicities 3, 1, and 1 respectively, that passes through the point $(1,)$.
