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.

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. 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.
MathNEXUS: Mathematics Portal For the past 29 years, I have taught a mathematics history course, and was even the creator of the course at my university. During this time, I have learned not only a great amount of the history of mathematics, but also have gained experience on how to integrate math history ideas into my normal teaching of mathematics. In an attempt to share some of this gained knowledge and experiences, I now announce the release of a new website Teaching Mathematics History. It is a collection of materials directed at either teaching a math history class or including math history ideas in other math courses. 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.

CME Project About the Program. The CME Project, developed by EDC’s Center for Mathematics Education and published by Pearson, is a coherent, four-year, NSF-funded high school mathematics program designed around how knowledge is organized and generated within mathematics: the themes of algebra, geometry, and analysis. The CME Project sees these branches of mathematics not only as compartments for certain kinds of results, but also as descriptors for methods and approaches—the habits of mind that determine how knowledge is organized and generated within mathematics itself. As such, they deserve to be centerpieces of a curriculum, not its by-products. The Program’s Structure. The CME Project uses the traditional American structure of algebra, geometry, advanced algebra, and precalculus.

Coping With Math Anxiety What Is Math Anxiety? A famous stage actress was once asked if she had ever suffered from stage-fright, and if so how she had gotten over it. She laughed at the interviewer’s naive assumption that, since she was an accomplished actress now, she must not feel that kind of anxiety.
