Conceptual ideas are important. In a sense, there is a need to develop an intuitive ‘feel’ for mathematics (e.g. the ability to visualise the ideas of proportion in relation to many settings rather than simply being able to mechanically share quantities in a given ratio), which would probably not be developed via a solely procedural-based curriculum.

With the amount of Mathematics content online now a days, I often find the biggest challenge is sorting through what to share with my students in class. Often resources appear usable at first, but then as you dig down deeper there are issues with alignment to the curriculum, notational differences or just confusing accents. However every now and again, you find a stand alone unit of work that has been handled particularly well and is ideally suited to being used in your class. In this case I try to do a blog post about it, so I don’t forget to use it in Future! The content below is taken from the Khan Academy program on Algebra 1 and is a fantastic introduction to the concept of a Function in Mathematics. This is a foundational concept but can be tricky to explain. This unit allows students to proceed at their own pace and build up a solid understanding of the concept.

I also added some additional resources at the end that I sourced from the Web to test my students understanding, since I largely run this unit as a self study module
- Kahoot Linear Functions Basics
- Understanding Functions
- Functions with different Visual Representations
- Relation & Functions Determination

## Animated Youtube Series on Euclid & Kahoot's that cover relevant material

A while ago I found the most delightful animated series on YouTube that explained the foundations of Euclidean Geometry delightfully. I decided it was so good that I needed to start off my GR9 unit, showing these videos to my learners. Below are the videos together with some other resources I have collected, related to this unit of work Euclidean Geometry.

### Collection of Maths Resources

I recently put together a collection of Calculus Resources for GR12 Maths in the SA Curriculum, using the tool EDpuzzle and learning content available by Mindset Learn as the base. Hopefully they can prove useful to other Maths Teachers out there.

Calculus Intro + Functions

Average Gradient

Understanding Limits

Definition of Derivative

Example of Derivative first principles y = 1/x

## Trig Resources

A while ago I started compiling a collection of fun resources related to the basics of Trigonometry. They will be most useful when acting as a supplementary resource to classroom instruction.
