Quibans Toticity Maths Resources Resourceaholic Last weekend I recorded a podcast with Craig Barton to celebrate my 100th gems post. I love the way @boss_maths described it: "So informative and entertaining, listening to this felt uncannily like listening to TMS as a cricket fan"! You can listen here and see what you think. The conversations we had in the podcast made me realise how much happens in a year. In this post I look back at 2018 and list some of my personal highlights, and look ahead to what's coming up in 2019. The start of 2018 saw the publication of Craig's book How I Wish I'd Taught Maths. Thankfully, opportunities for maths teachers to take control of their own professional development have continued to grow. In 2018 I attended three of La Salle's national maths conferences and loved every minute. If you missed these presentations then you might be able to catch me presenting them again next year. In addition to the La Salle conferences, I was fortunate to attend a number of excellent events in 2018.
Home | AMSP Computing Technology for Math Excellence Math = Love: Bulletin Board Ideas I've spent many a hour browsing pinterest and blogs for new ideas for decorating my high school math classroom. This summer, I'm taking some time to categorize some of my own resources so they are more accessible to readers. This page is meant to house pictures of the bulletin boards I have created over the past few years. Most (not all) are math-y, but I think they can be easily adapted to your own classroom. I've also created a page on my blog to house all of the posters I have created. Click here to find the files to create many of these bulletin boards. When you enter this classroom... Absent?

Mathshelper.co.uk A Level Resources Over the course of my teaching career I have written various revision sheets for my students at both of the schools I have taught at. I don't agree with the philosophy of cramming close to the exam, but students will be students, and I wanted mine to have a document that they could refer to the night before to ensure that they knew all the required information for the exam. Inevitably when writing them I have had in mind the set who were going to use them. I am currently teaching the new OCR Linear A Maths Course (for first Assessment in 2018).

KS5 – BossMaths.com This is a relatively new section of the site, and as such is still growing. The resources here are not designed to substitute for a good textbook—which most sixth-formers tend to have access to anyway. The content here instead centres around dynamic interactive applets with three main purposes in mind: conveying concepts more clearly than is possible with static diagrams on a page or a slide;offering several question generators that can be used in class to develop fluency e.g. through use of guidance fading, material for mini-whiteboard or oral questioning; andproviding step-by-step procedural guides for students.
