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

Chanting activities and interactive maths
Chanting activities and interactive maths
Chanting activities involving a unison response can be a good way to practise aspects of maths that involve some sort of repetition. It is fun to do, but needs to be well managed by the teacher and this includes identifying the areas of maths it works best with and careful planning to include all abilities in this whole class activity. 
 
Misconceptions in maths - breaking down the problems
Misconceptions in maths - breaking down the problems
An aspect of teaching mathematics that can be very satisfying is spotting the reason why a child has misunderstood some maths and then being able to deal with it quickly so they are put back on the correct path in their learning. This all involves a teacher having a good subject knowledge – an understanding of the curriculum, the small steps of progression, the way a concept or procedure is represented, the connections there are and the best way of interacting with the child. 
 
Maths around a Roman theme
Maths around a Roman theme

Multiplication - exploring Gelosia and Russian methods
Multiplication - exploring Gelosia and Russian methods
As a follow up to the article on Napier’s Bones, I thought it would be useful to look at other historical (and interesting) methods for multiplication. There were two in particular that I used in my own teaching - the Gelosia and Russian Peasant methods. They were both great for exploring different ways of handling numbers when calculating and practising key skills, but I wouldn’t necessarily use either as a chosen standard method.
