Mathematical Miscellany #52

Congratulations to Corbettmaths – 200 million views. 200 million views because it is so good; certainly a go-to site. As well as the brilliant 5-a-day resources the videos and worksheets are also excellent. Do check the ‘More’ menu also, where you will find additional resources including a very comprehensive set of videos and worksheets for level 2 Further Maths.

I do like the collection of Practice Papers, note the Revision resources, including A Bit of Everything Papers; the Foundation papers with 116 questions provide very comprehensive syllabus coverage! Each paper includes a contents list with the relevant teaching video.

Returning on 21st June is Calculator Crunch from MEI. To quote MEI:

On each weekday from 21 June – 1 July we will tweet an engaging question for children to work on – that’s nine questions in total. They all involve using a calculator (basic or scientific) to solve an interesting problem. The problems are designed to deepen children’s mathematical thinking skills in a fun way.

Simply follow @MEIMaths on Twitter and get involved by using the hashtag #CalculatorCrunch.

You can still access all the 2019 and 2020 Calculator Crunch questions.

Matt Woodfine continues to update the brilliant Maths White Board; I see new content added recently, Stem and leaf diagrams and Equation of a circle; I have linked to the recall boards in each case, one of my favourite features of the site is the extensive collection of retrieval practice boards.
