Another compilation this week, this time of updates to this and some companion blogs.
A consistently popular page on this site has been Rich Tasks – this has now been split into two separate pages, one for age 11-16 and the other for age 16+. The 16+ page has been updated with considerably more detail. With the UK new A Level specifications having a greater emphasis on problem solving and more challenging questions, activities such as those here should be a natural part of our regular teaching.
Do explore the brilliant Underground Mathematics site as well as Jonny Griffiths’ various sites. Further resources are provided in the presentation at the end of the page.
In last week’s Mathematical Miscellany #5 I included Jonathan Hall’s MathsBot.com site with its many excellent Tools for Maths Teachers. With some great starters and a bank of GCSE questions with solutions more detail has been added to this post on Mathematics – Starters and Plenaries. The Collections page on the same site has also been updated and checked. As the name implies these are sites with a fantastic supply of starters.
