This is a fun curriculum-based mathematics resource that enables students to practise their solving of formulae and their understanding of how to collate and present data, whilst drawing conclusions from statistics and interpreting their answer to an overall question.
The resource links to dinosaurs found on the Isle of Wight specifically, ensuring relevance on the visit for students whilst ensuring the wider curricular relevance is maintained. Questions have been chosen because they link directly with the key curriculum areas.
This resource is designed to be used when back in the classroom, as a post-visit activity. It uses mathematical processes to determine the hypothetical speed of the dinosaur versus the average speed of the class group. If desired by the teacher, it could also be completed on the local beach near Dinosaur Isle museum, if key apparatus is taken.
Key Skills Practised
Practising measuring skills
Summarising, collating, presenting and interpreting data
Drawing conclusions from their results
Applying formulae to a hypothetical dinosaur encounter
Students will be able to demonstrate their ability to understand the process of working out the answer to the question using various mathematical skills and stages. They will have practised measuring skills, whilst summarising, collating, presenting and interpreting statistic data, ultimately drawing conclusions from their results.
