New site from a UK maths teacher who wants to share the many resources he has created to aid conceptual teaching. Files are for interactive whiteboards (Smart Notebook and ActivInspire Flipchart format) and the majority come with a Word document lesson plan (these are great!), a PPT, and a worksheet.
There is also a section on proof and some Tarsia PDF resources.
Lots of interactive maths resources categorised by level, topic and context. Content includes videos, Hot Potatoes, Quia activities, quizzes, tarsia puzzles, links to other sites. Very useful to help find activities on a particular topic/level. Covers levels from E1 to L2.
The National Learning Network materials have found a new home on the LSIS web site. Masses of onscreen interactive learning activities along with extensive tutor guidance. Although the materials were created quite a few years ago there is still much useful content. Covers numeracy from Entry 3 – Level 3, ESOL (E1-L2), Literacy (L1-L3), family learning, and a host of vocational subjects including care, beauty, business, and floristry (see pop up picture for details).
I have found this site very useful for understanding maths. There are clear explanations of basic maths concepts such as geometry, algebra, etc. I think tutors will find it useful if they need a ‘brush up’ and I have also recommended it to my students as there are interactive exercises, games and maths puzzles. There’s also an illustrated maths dictionary and small worksheet section.
32 interactive maths activities (fantastic if you have an interactive whiteboard or large screen) written for the National (Primary) Numeracy Strategy (2002 onwards). All have a mind-blowing range of options and possible customisations. You will find something here for all levels from E1 to L2: symmetry, multiplication (grid method), place value, fractions, measuring cylinders, scales, thermometers and much more. Fantastic and invaluable.
PlusMaths is a great online magazine covering all sorts of different things. I love the Maths for Skills poster and the puzzles.
Some of the ideas can be used in a classroom setting, or to create debate about maths in ‘the real world’. The packages are fab for this and can really help reinforce your own knowledge and understanding if you’ve ended up teaching Maths/numeracy without really having a firm background in it.
