I enjoyed so many excellent sessions and presented a session at each conference myself, one for the ATM Conference considering how elements of the Great teaching toolkit: Evidence Review can be applied in Mathematics teaching and the other for the MA on exploration and investigation with technology.
I have created a page for each of these, each page includes all the resources I included in these sessions. I will add further explanations to these pages. I hope they will be a useful resource for maths teachers generally.
This page includes links to updates, results statistics archives including November 2020 as well as links to the various examination boards and the support from each.
Note the very useful Exams Office updates, a good read for anxious students from Professor Kevin Woods and psychologists at Manchester University and several posts recently published as well as their results analysis series from fft education datalab.
It’s nearly Easter time again, so time for some Mathematical Easter treats!
Also a post for students – a puzzle from Mathisfun which is just an excuse to solve some simultaneous equations (and how to do it on Excel with the neat MINVERSE function!) The post also includes some notes and examples for students on simultaneous equations.
From Chris Smith, try his great Easter relay and note the whole set. I have used many of these very successfully – have fun whilst doing plenty of Maths!
On Teachit Maths, we have an Easter Chick withEaster Coordinate Pictures and Easter Bunny Race. With Easter Bunny Race, watch a race between the Easter bunnies and determine their speed. I like the questions to check understanding, including some harder questions – watch those units!
