If you've got some keen music fans in your class why not try our Rock Club resources which bring maths to life? Pupils plan their own stadium gig.
They will need to apply their maths to everyday scenarios including using data to decide on which acts to invite, managing a budget, designing stage layouts and lighting, estimating quantities for catering and deciding on the most successful play list. If you wish, you can also throw in some extra challenges along the way to test how well they adapt to problems.
Written and tested by an Advanced Skills Maths Teacher, all materials are linked to the maths curricula so you can have confidence in their quality and relevance.
The resources have been designed to run either in one concentrated block or spread over 12 lessons. All lesson plans and materials are provided for teachers free of charge.
The resources are designed to work either as a standalone set of lessons or can be integrated into maths lessons throughout a term.
Set the scene
Why not consider using real music tracks/videos at the start or end of the lesson to energise students and demonstrate the everyday use of maths.
Pre-Rock Club Evaluation
Please ensure all students complete this survey before they start Rock Club so we can understand their attitude to maths and levels of confidence prior to getting involved.
Post-Rock Club Evaluation
Please ensure all students complete this survey after they have completed Rock Club (preferably immediately after the final session) so we can understand the impact on their attitude to maths and levels of confidence.
