What do teachers think?

I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your website. It is such a great resource and a great help to a not-very-maths confident subject leader. I keep discovering amazing and super helpful gems and wanted to say thank you!    Maths Subject Leader, North London

Inspiring your class with maths - give a problem within a context
Inspiring your class with maths - give a problem within a context
Giving a mathematical challenge to your class can provide purpose to the maths and sparks children's interest, particularly if set in an inspiring context. The problem solving process involves reasoning and thinking mathematically, while applying the skills or concepts they are learning. That’s all great, of course – but finding appropriate problems to match the learning objectives is not always easy and they are rarely set within a context that suits your class. So where can you begin?
 
How to make your maths displays engaging and active
How to make your maths displays engaging and active
A lively and engaging maths display is an important element of the classroom, helping children understand the concepts, skills or procedures of a particular maths topic and providing opportunities to celebrate their achievements. Many governors, heads and subject leaders use learning walks to get a feel of the maths going on in a class and the obvious place for them to look first is the maths display.
 
Learning objectives, expected outcomes and small steps of progression
Learning objectives, expected outcomes and small steps of progression
When planning a unit of maths using a mastery approach, the learning objectives are a key starting point. Teachers begin with a set of objectives, with many teachers then using statements of expected outcomes to determine the learning that has taken place. I also like to use small steps of progression alongside these. I am going to take a look at the purpose of each of them, to make the most of these linked aspects at the start of the planning process.
 
Points of view - plans and elevations of 3-D shapes
Points of view - plans and elevations of 3-D shapes
In our everyday lives we make a wide-ranging use of diagrams, maps and floor-plans which all assume an ability to interpret plans, elevations and aerial views. Giving children the opportunity to explore plans, side elevations and front elevations of 3-D shapes, and represent them in different ways, is a useful step towards developing these skills, as well as helping to cover these NC Programmes of Study:
Year 3 – ‘Recognise 3-D shapes in different orientations and describe them’
Year 5 – ‘Identify 3-D shapes, including cubes and cuboids from 2-D representations’
