MathsPad Whilst looking at some TES Resources I came across an excellent interactive from MathsPad, a site with a growing collection of resources for teachers and students. The site is easy to navigate with a clear menu at the top of the various pages. The various interactives are attractive and display very well on the interactive whiteboard. Many of these would make excellent starters or plenaries. To access all the resources requires an annual subscription but there are free resources available in each section; I like this on matching surds for example This is a site well worth exploring.

reflectivemaths's Blog | A place to share teaching and learning ideas. Sometimes with a Maths theme. dy/dan maths sandpit Well folks, the end is in sight! Soon Y11 will be on study leave. Sure, there will be those conscientious few who come in for help or revision sessions, but the majority of pupils need the next month to considate their learning and be ready for their exams. Are these teenagers buzzing with energy and keen to work? No. They are tired of being told about exam technique and interpreting questions. How can you make yet another GCSE paper interesting? It’s time to cut up the exam paper (see Foundation GCSE analysis for first scissor session). Now this task will need some prep work. Equipment *Enough copies of a GCSE paper for 1 between 2 or 3. Optional: A spreadsheet with the pairs of students in the first column Prep Work You need to slice the papers into individual questions. Activity Each pair is given the first question face down. Correct: it is ticked and they are issued with the next question.Wrong: it is crossed and they try again.Wrong twice: they are issued with the next question.
e to the i pi - …mathematical investigation ideas by Kevin Bertman Musings of a mathematical magpie If you’ve had a look through this blog before, you might have read the “about me” section at the side where I explain that I did a history degree before going on to become a maths teacher. This information mildly interests some people, worries others, and sends a select bunch into a heightened state of moral outrage. This last group – the righteously indignant - are of course the most entertaining, and I’ve learned to develop a thick skin when they air their short-sighted opinions. Upon hearing the news that I had a history degree, one man abruptly stopped the perfectly pleasant conversation we were having and started spluttering “I wouldn’t let you anywhere near children” before walking off. Another person reacted by saying that I could never be taken seriously as a professional and surely I should be teaching primary school children. So I’m taking the opportunity to answer these two questions about myself. For me, there have certainly been benefits to this approach.
