A very quick one (5 minute blog post?).. Firstly I want to thank @TeacherToolkit for the 5 minute series and @DaK_74 for the fantastic idea of using it for a test analysis. My fantastic year 11s did a PPE (Pre Public Exam) recently... Read more » Due to popular demand, I have created a set of 5 “Essential Skills” sheets for Core 1. They are aimed at the AQA syllabus but could easily be adapted to suit others.

The resources are self-contained and can be used for any lessons where the context or skills are relevant. Nuffield Mathematics resources are divided into three levels and can be used to support a wide variety of qualifications, including Free-Standing Mathematics Qualifications (FSMQs), A/AS Use of Mathematics and the new Core Maths qualifications. We provide schemes of work for using the resources to support Use of Mathematics and FSMQs. We have also outlined which resources are relevant to each of the six new Core Maths qualifications.

It’s that time of year again where we are in the thick of GCSE revision lessons. Some of this time, quite rightly, should be dedicated to exam paper practice but I find that the repetitiveness of this often leads to stale lessons and it is difficult to monitor how much progress students are actually making. My current group of brilliant, hard working, year 11s are quite mixed ability with some students who are working towards securing a C grade and others aiming for Bs, As and A*s. I have put together a set of graded revision mats (with a bit of help from @climbingjack and @zebfriedman) that cover most areas of GCSE mathematics from F to A* grade. I have had these printed back to back on A3 paper and laminated and are being shared across the department.

NRICH Teachers Primary Pupils Secondary Students Events and PD "It gave me some good ideas to use in the classroom and ... a link that I can get all of the activities from." Book NRICH Bespoke PDBook Forthcoming EventsBook our Hands-on Roadshow Animations for A level Last week I presented on A level resources at Stuart Price's 'Maths in the Sticks' event. I spoke briefly about how we can use animations to support our explanations of mathematical concepts. Many teachers already make use of programmes such as Geogebra, Autograph and Desmos, but here I'm talking specifically about animated gifs that teachers can simply paste into a PowerPoint. Gifs run on a loop so students can watch them for a while, providing 'thinking time' in the lesson and allowing new ideas to click into place. I use gifs alongside physical demonstrations where possible, for example when I teach Volume of Revolution I show animations and use paper props too (see Gems 45). So where can you get animated maths gifs?

MEDIAN Don Steward secondary maths teaching: surds watch the youtube clip Golden Section IV by Jo Niemeyer establish that the lengths indicated are in a 'golden' ratio if you fit three identical circles inside a semicircle: it is not too difficult to show that the ratio of the bigger radius to the smaller one is twice the golden ratio the golden ratio occurs in various ratios of sides in a pentagon

Surds When we can't simplify a number to remove a square root (or cube root etc) then it is a surd. Example: √2 (square root of 2) can't be simplified further so it is a surd Example: √4 (square root of 4) can be simplified (to 2), so it is not a surd! Have a look at some more examples: Passports I originally stumbled upon Maths Passports when searching for ideas for departmental displays. I was lucky enough to find lots of pictures on twitter and came across Mr Collins Blog. I took the idea of the passports and edited them to make it work for my school. The videos link to several youtube maths tutorials, which I am hoping to gradually change with videos of my own. (Pupils seem to prefer videos made by their own teacher). I have also attempted to incorporate @MathedUp's passport mats within the design.
