You may have already seen the expectations videos I made for Year 10 and Year 11. I was considering making these for Year 12 and 13 too but wasn't sure it would work well with these groups. Then I stumbled across this infographic that I made last year and never had the chance to use. I made it using Piktochart, inspired by an infographic syllabus made by Anna Hester (@TypeAMathLand). I like this a lot, but there's two problems. Then I spotted this cool idea in Dan Meyer's post The First Day Wiki.

Quick - let's get started... 1. Hula Hoops Who needs technology when you can stick a hula hoop on the board? This simple idea, shared by @emziecampbell, is for teaching children to tell the time. It would work well for other circle-based topics too. 2. This technique stops duplication of effort and helps the teacher assess understanding, plus it has the benefit of getting students out of their seats, albeit briefly. While I'm on the subject of post-it notes, I should mention a cool new app 'Post-it Plus' that was suggested by @dazmck. 3.

Every poster is excellent so it was hard to choose three examples for this post! In addition to the posters, Mr Walton suggests revision cards in the form of ration booklets and a school broadcast by the Ministry of Maths! 4. If you were at the recent Maths Conference in Kettering then you may have been interested in Johnny Ball's parabolic multiplication. Chris Smith sur Twitter : "AH student challenged me: use three 0s,1s,2s,3s....,8s,9s and #Maths operations to make the answer 6. #SpoilerAlert.

Following on from my last post on ideas for the first Year 7 lesson of the year, here's some ideas for the start of Year 12.

Unfortunately we don't really have any time to spare in our sixth form teaching. It's a challenge just to fit enough lessons into the school year to cover all the course material before our students go off to take their exams. So, sadly, there's no time for enrichment or getting to know each other - students have to hit the ground running. Entry Assessment At my school, as at many others, we ask our students to prepare for Year 12 by doing some summer work. We expect them to have a solid understanding of GCSE topics when they start the course, particularly surds, indices and algebra. The results from our entry assessments were rather worrying. Hello and welcome to my 34th gems post.

This is where I share five teaching ideas I've seen on Twitter. The summer holidays are finally here! Let's be honest though - although it's lovely to have the opportunity to rest and play, the majority of us do a fair amount of school work over summer - creating resources, organising and tidying, preparing for September, catching up on reading... Have you read all 34 of my gems posts? Now's a good time to start! 1. 2. I love this prime clock from the brilliant Minimal Math Concepts. C1 Example Sets - Step Up to A-Level Maths. Introduction You will be starting an A-Level Maths course in September, and it is important that you are ready for the step up.

Step Up to A-Level Maths

The best way to prepare yourself is to make sure you have a firm grasp of the knowledge and skills you have already developed at GCSE level. There are a number of key skills which you need to make sure you are confident with before starting the A-Level course - these are used regularly in the Core 1 and Core 2 modules and it is essential that you are not struggling with basic skills when you are trying to learn more advanced material for the first time.
