A compilation this week …
….is my favourite Microsoft program both for its use in Mathematics teaching and for data analysis. In 2013 at the TSM Conference I was very fortunate to meet and be trained by Mike Hadden. I had already discovered and often used Mike’s Excel files for my teaching; in 2013 thanks to Mike I discovered the joys of Excel macros which save me a serious number of hours in my job!
GCSE New Content
I have created a new page for GCSE resources for the new content which I will add to as we discover more! Note the addition of some resources at the end of the list under Further Resources. A list of changes is available on a separate page.
Further Resources – GCSE new content
- AQA Bridging the Gap for students who have studied the current (2007) Key Stage 3 Programme of Study and are preparing for the new Mathematics GCSE (8300 specification).
- Transition Units – Cambridge
- OCR Check in tests scroll down to Teaching and Learning Resources
- Resourceaholic from Jo Morgan – links to support the teaching of new topics in GCSE Mathematics.
For problem solving, Brilliant…is just that, brilliant – I’ll return to this in another post but do have a look.
Rereading my post on the TSM conference reminded me of this wonderful entertainment – ‘Katie’s bad science’. I love this!
