“A place for everything, everything in its place”Benjamin Franklin
Where do we put things so we can find them again?! I have been organising posts and pages in an attempt to make things easier to find – an ongoing mission, still in its early days! Just a few examples of recent organisation:
Added to the A Level (16+) series of pages is a page for GCSE to A Level Transition. One of the A level pages is on University Admissions Tests, added to that page is Mr Bowler’s Problem Solving Booklet for University Preparation which contains 151 questions to help prepare students for undergraduate admissions interviews in mathematics, answers are also available; the booklet is available on Dr Frost Maths.
On the subject of Starters, added to the Collections category, is Julia Smith’s (@TessMaths), wonderful collection of Mathematical Hooks. The Starters library can be found on the first of the top menus – Lesson Planning.
Also added to Lesson Planning is a page for Misconceptions in Mathematics.
George Stone (@DrStoneMaths) is producing one slide summaries of interesting educational research papers, this information has been added to both Research – Learning and Teaching and Research – Mathematics Learning and Teaching, both part of the Reading series available from the top menu.
Older, but still with many useful examples – see these Exemplification Examples which were written by the National Strategies for the then Secondary Framework for Teaching Mathematics. The examples illustrate what students should be able to do within a particular strand of objectives by the end of each year. Examples are in the four categories number, algebra, statistics and geometry and include examples for Year 7, 8 and 9. There are many excellent examples here still relevant for KS3.
