We hope these resources may be of some use to you and your students in the coming days.
This page outlines some resources for a topical maths unit or project on “Disease Dynamics”. It could be suitable for your TY students or other year groups. It also has lots of links to yesterday’s page on “Indices and Logarithms”, especially “Exploring Exponential Functions”.
The nrich page under “Activities” is a good starting point for this area.
We've picked materials from a variety of sources which may help you when planning for supporting your students in their learning. As teachers, you're in the best place to judge which materials are most useful for your students and to design activities around these resources.
If you have any questions email us at email@example.com.
