Maths Teaching

About Me

I am Assistant Head of Mathematics at a Grammar School in Berkshire. I have been teaching maths for over 5 years and am trying to make my life easier by cataloguing all the various resources I have used with my classes. I do not believe in re-inventing the wheel and therefore if you like any of my resources, please feel free to use them.

Y9 Set 5 2007 2


  1. This may be a bit young for your students however we are getting quite a lot of use from secondary schools. It’s free, has no ads and we have recently built in several new teacher features (reporting, class sign up etc). Have a look and if you want to know more please let me know. If you like it a link would be fantastic as I really like your blog.

  2. Hi Richard

    Thanks for the link – it looks quite good for lesson starters for Y7 or lower ability sets. Getting pupils to learn their times tables can be quite difficult sometimes, and this could really help.

    I will link to it for sure.
    Glad you like my site.

  3. I’ve poked around a bit on your site, and I’m fairly impressed with what I see. If you have a minute, I’m interested in your take on Investigations Math. We’re dealing with it in my school district, and I’m looking for as many comments on it as I can find. Thanks!

  5. By the way, I’m a PGCE, just towards the end of my first placement. I want a tie to wear that has something like a Mandelbrot or other mathsy design.
    Know of anywhere that does geeky but nice stuff?

  6. Good stuff.
    I have used the volume resources and they were brilliant.
    I have also created a website and I hope you may find it useful also.

  10. I was just reading your blog and thought you may be interested in checking out a new math resource that my nonprofit organization, Facing the Future, has just released.

    Real World Math: Engaging Students through Global Issues is a supplementary math text that puts math in an interesting context that relates to students’ lives. The teacher’s guide and corresponding student workbook contain 15 lessons that engage students in learning foundational algebra and geometry through real-world data on global issues such as climate change, population, and financial literacy.

    Each lesson in the teacher’s guide includes:
    • A complete lesson plan including an activity based ‘hook’ to engage students
    • Masters for student lesson handouts
    • Masters for practice worksheets

    All lessons were inspired, researched, designed, reviewed, and pilot tested by educators in the field.
    You can read more about this resource and download sample lessons on our website. If you would like to receive a review a complementary copy of the teacher’s guide, please send me your mailing address.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions about this resource or our organization in general.

  13. Hi Maths Chick
    Please have a look at my maths comedy videos – i’ve done ones on set theory, a circle theorem and the quadratic formula.
    I hope you like them.
