Night Train

Description

These 12 short sequences, shot behind the scenes on the overnight sleeper train from London to Scotland, each display a different aspect of mathematics for pupils to explore, investigate and discuss.

How fast and how far does the train travel, how much food is carried, how many sheets are there, how do the carriages get cleaned, and is that bed really big enough?!

Each sequence poses a question intended to stimulate mathematical discussion rather than to elicit a correct answer to a computation.

The programme is intended to be used in sections, stopping and replaying the video to analyse the information.

It can be shown to pupils on a whiteboard where the pictures can be annotated, or worked on by pupils individually, or in groups on PCs or laptops.
