## Why every math wiz should challenge red light cameras

After his wife gets a ticket, a math tutor's intervention succeeds in proving that the yellow lights were too short at an intersection. Shouldn't all mathematicians now test their local cameras?

## Mr Collins’ Maths Sheets - Resources - TES

Secondary Maths Resource Collections...Paul Collins has created this amazing set of Table Sheets, aimed at both Foundation and Higher students.

The sheets work best with Higher Tier candidates although half of the questions on each sheet are aimed at the Foundation Tier. In order to aid student’s revision each sheet has a number line, BODMAS reminder and key formulae; the formulae are randomly spread throughout the sheets meaning that classes will need to support each other with their revision i.e. if somebody needs to use Pythagoras’ theorem and they have forgotten the formula for it they can ask the class who has it on their sheet.

## MathsNet and NRich Maths 3D shape resource heaven | Great Maths Teaching Ideas

MathsNet have a wonderful collection of 3D shape resources at this webpage. There are a variety of interactive applets that cover 3D shape topics including nets and 2D views of 3D shapes.

My particular favourite is ‘Building Houses 2′ where pupils have to build the 3D shape by using the 2D views given. They score maximum points by using the minimum number of blocks possible. By clicking and dragging on the 3D view pupils can spin their construction around in real time to help them with the task.

## Loci

This resource is split into two sections: Starter activity: This Introductory Stimulus Material illustrates how loci can be used in a practical situation to solve a problem. Pupils have to work out the area of land on which a developer is allowed to build. Main activity: This open-ended tool enables you to create and display loci quickly. Up to four different sets of locus condition can be defined and layered on the chart. This is an ideal resource for illustrating concepts and setting problems.
