A while ago I made this compilation of ‘fractiony looky-likeys’ for my Year 13s…
It turned out to be an interesting experience watching them try to solve it. The questions provide a really nice platform for talking about the decision-making process in coping with these kinds of question.
(I nicked a similar task which @danielpearcy posted on Twitter a couple of weeks later which was also really useful. He makes the point that they’re similar to SSDD problems.)
I’ve been trying to rethink my approach to teaching integration this year, and will blog about this when I get chance.
In the meantime, I tried to make a similar task of triggy looky-likeys. This proved a bit more difficult and I ended up putting them into batches which I could use as starters.
Again, these felt like really useful tasks, so I thought I’d share them in case they’re helpful to anyone else.
