Welcome to my 158th gems post. This is in which I share some of the most recent information, thoughts and means for maths teachers. 1. Revision Sources
Back in 2018 I developed 3 sets of ‘breakfast revision’ means for the two Basis and Increased GCSE (notice: they do not have to be applied at breakfast!). Jess Prior (@FortyNineCubed) has edited these for the Edexcel State-of-the-art Facts 2022. Many thanks Jess!

Look at out the Twitter feed of @1stclassmaths for superb revision assets in a comparable structure for both of those AQA and Edexcel Basis and Better.

@1stclassmaths has also began to share a series of topic booklets for AQA Certification of Even further Maths. Their first 1 is on matrix multiplication.


Thank you also to @DrBennison for sharing an AQA A Stage Maths Exercise Paper 1 dependent on the 2022 Sophisticated Information and facts.

2. ExamQ

Thanks to a remark on my GCSE revision blog site submit, I uncovered the new web site ExamQ from @ExamQbyMrWatts. This is a extremely very well built site where you can find test questions that match each of the matters outlined in the Progress Information. It covers GCSE, AS and A level. The web site has a lovely format – it can be person-welcoming and it is really absolutely free!

3. Maths Universe
@JakeGMaths has designed a genuinely good teaching device. mathsuniverse.com/whiteboard has plenty of great features. For instance, say you are circulating spherical the classroom and you spot some thing attention-grabbing in a student’s reserve that you want to share with the course. You can consider a photo of it on your cell phone or tablet and it just pops up on the board quickly. No require for exclusive software, gear or logins. Then you can create on it, both from your telephone or at the board. The person interface is beautiful.

Yet another good characteristic is prompt replays. You can use this instrument to model answers on the board and replay your modelling in a person simply click. It’s so quick to use.

I also like the way you can effortlessly show a PowerPoint that’s on your Personal computer and then use all the performance – pens, timer, fast replay and many others – over your slides.

While you’re checking out mathsuniverse.com, have a search at the techniques grid creator way too. All over again, a seriously intelligent interface – you can speedily
make a sequence of linked starters and it automatically generates sensible printable variations and worked remedies.

4. Ratio Tables
@alcmaths has gone by way of the full White Rose Important Stage 3 and 4 curriculum and developed a brilliant tutorial to exactly where and how ratio tables can be employed.


I’ve been swamped at get the job done lately so I have not bought substantially to report!

If you instruct Yr 11, very good luck in excess of the coming weeks! Fascinating moments.

I’ll depart you with this extraordinary article “An Interactive Introduction to Fourier Transforms” from @jezzamonn. I have by no means seen a sophisticated strategy described so clearly. It really worth examining for two factors: 1. to see how to assemble a great created clarification and 2. to understand about Fourier transforms.
