Search and Rescue

Maths doesn’t get more real than an HM Coastguard search & rescue mission

Service Pack: Available with USO

Subject: Mathematics

Featuring exclusive footage of real-life rescues at sea, lifeboat and helicopter searches, and rescue coordination at the National Maritime Operations Centre, pupils can see mathematical problem-solving in action – real life, with real consequences.

Featuring exclusive footage of real‐life rescues at sea, lifeboat and helicopter searches, and rescue coordination at the National Maritime Operations Centre, pupils can see mathematical problem‐solving in action – real life, with real consequences.

Much more than a series of exciting, attention‐grabbing videos and images, the resource is extensively mapped to the new National Curriculum and includes detailed lesson plans and resources to enable pupils to apply their skills in context, solving problems for themselves.

Featuring comprehensive and differentiated support materials, topics covered include Bearings, Pythagoras and Trigonometry, Algebra, Vectors and Speed, Distance and Time.

Some topics also include online interactive assessments, built within the LGfL Assessment Maker. Students can complete these on any internet-enabled device to receive immediate feedback on their understanding.

The online assessments are designed to help teachers and students identify possible misconceptions and gaps in the required knowledge. Pupils may sometimes question the excitement or relevance of plotting an accurate triangle and calculating its sides, but what if the three points are a helicopter, a lifeboat and a sailor in distress, with only minutes left to save a life?

Access to Learning Resources both in and away from school site is freely available with a TRUSTnet Core Service subscription.
