• The Starter called Cat Face is new today (4th December 2014). It is more of a standard reflection activity with controls to allow the teacher to select vertical, horizontal or a diagonal mirror line. There is also a choice of four different comic faces intended to motivate pupils to make a good job of the task. Transum subscribers also have access to a button which superimposes the answers onto the diagram.

Hello World

You are buying a (driverless) car. One vehicle is programmed to save as many lives as possible in a collision. Another promises to prioritize the lives of its passengers. Which do you choose?

Welcome to the age of the algorithm, the story of a not-too-distant future where machines rule supreme, making important decisions – in healthcare, transport, finance, security, what we watch, where we go even who we send to prison. So how much should we rely on them? What kind of future do we want?

Hannah Fry takes us on a tour of the good, the bad and the downright ugly of the algorithms that surround us. In Hello World she lifts the lid on their inner workings, demonstrates their power, exposes their limitations, and examines whether they really are an improvement on the humans they are replacing. more...
