# A level Resources

## Integral Online Resources

A wide range of resources for teaching A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics are available on the Integral Online Resources website. These are free to schools/colleges registered with the FMSP and include teaching resources for:

- All the applied modules for A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics
- All the A level Further Pure modules
- OCR level 3 FSMQ in Additional Mathematics
- AQA level 2 Certificate in Further Mathematics

In addition registered schools/colleges have access to other resources suitable for A level students, such as:

- Integrated Mathematics Problem Solving (IMPS)

These resources are designed to help teach relevant aspects of mathematics and statistics, showing how they are used in solving real problems in other subjects at A level.

- Engineering Mathematics Resources

These resources were produced by MEI for the Royal Academy of Engineering and use realistic engineering contexts to offer opportunities to learn how mathematics may be used to solve engineering problems. The resources include an interactive visual representation of vectors.

## Post-16 Problem Solving Resources

Additional resources to support problem-solving can be found at:

## A level Revision Videos

The FMSP provides revision videos for each specification. These are topic-based videos featuring an explanation of the specifications and some example examination questions. They can be found on the Revision videos page.

## MEI Website

The MEI website has further resources and support materials for teachers.

# Mechanics Resources

## Modelling with the Dynakar

The Dynakar communicates wirelessly with a computer and can be used to collect accurate data of its displacement and velocity as it rolls along.

It can be used in a variety of ways, such as investigating motion graphs, kinematics experiments, modelling with Newton's Laws and investigating forces.

- Teacher's Guide and Introduction to Exploratory Data Analysis with the Dynakar
- Galileo's Experiment worksheet
- Galileo's Experiment - Investigating Angle of Incline notes
- Galileo's Experiment - Investigating Mass of Car notes
- Galileo's Experiment - Investigating Air Resistance notes
- Rolling Uphill worksheet
- Resistance Force worksheet

## Mechanics in Action

For other ideas for practical work in mechanics the Mechanics in Action workbook can be downloaded from the National STEM Centre eLibrary. This contains 53 practical investigations with detailed teachers notes and explanations of the mathematical models.

## Year 12 Problem Solving Practice

These sheets form a series designed for use by students during year 12. None of the questions assume any substantial knowledge of year 12 mathematics.

## Summer of Year 12 and Year 13 Problem Solving Masterclasses

Below are a series of resources for problem solving masterclasses generally suitable for use with students at the end of year 12 or during year 13.

The FMSP organises events for students and teachers to practice and develop problem-solving skills in mathematics. Details of these can be found in the events section and here Problem-solving events.

Additional resources to support post-16 problem-solving can be found at:

# Enhancement Videos

These short videos are designed to support and enhance your understanding of some of the key concepts contained within A level Mathematics. If you have already mastered the basics of the topic then the videos should stimulate your thinking and provide further insight. The focus is on looking in a bit more depth at examples that can be tackled using knowledge gained from the curriculum.

These examples are not taken from any individual exam specification and may go beyond what you need to know for the examination; however, they all illustrate key concepts and will help you by giving you a more thorough understanding of the mathematics you have studied.
