PowerPoint Assisted Teaching of Analytical Methods V1
Price: £39.99 (Excluding VAT at 20%)
Age Group: 16-18 and FE/HE
Order Number: 10119
This material is the first of five volumes which has been developed to help teachers deliver topics from the “Analytical Methods for Engineers” Unit – a Mathematics unit.
Each volume is concerned with all, part, of one of the four main learning outcomes of the unit.
This volume focuses on Algebraic Methods: Long Division of Algebraic Fractions, Partial Fractions, Hyperbolic Functions, Solution of Exponential, Logarithmics and Hyperbolic Equations, Arithmetic and Geometric Series and Power Series. For each of these six topics there is a well-structured PowerPoint presentation.
The presentations aim to position learners to meet all four pass criteria for the Algebraic Methods part of the Unit... The 67 slides explain concepts, methods and problem-solving techniques in a unique, clear and consistent manner. The presentations are colour coded to distinguish between the presentation of concepts, setting of problems, problem-solving, thought processes and emphasis.
Each presentation starts with a title slide followed by the learning objectives for the presentation. There follows a step-by-step, no frills, method of delivery for the concepts involved, often incorporating worked example. It is suggested that the learners be given the opportunity to attempt examples for themselves at appropriate places in the presentation. This, plus the advanced level of the work, may well result in any particular presentation providing material for more than one teaching session. Topics can be introduced at a pace consistent with the ability of any particular group of learners.
This series of presentations forms part of a developing library at BTEC First, National and Higher levels in Engineering and Construction.
Once purchased, the CD can be freely copied and networked throughout the school.
