Common Core Problem Based Curriculum Maps The following Problem Based Learning (PrBL) curriculum maps are based on the Math Common Core State Standards and the associated scope and sequences. The problems and tasks have been scoured from thoughtful math bloggers who have advanced our practice by posting their materials online. The Scope and Sequences for Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Math 9 (Integrated), Math 10 (Integrated), and Math 11 (Integrated) are from Pearson. 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?
GCSE Revision mats - MathedUp! 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.

Nuffield Foundation This site provides resources for teaching the use of mathematics and statistics. 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.
