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

Enlarging shapes to explore their properties
Enlarging shapes to explore their properties
A good way for children to understand the properties of polygons is to construct them precisely and accurately. Using a sharp pencil, a ruler and a protractor to draw and measure different shapes, they can then compare and ask questions about them. One issue with this for teachers is that progression in geometry is not clear, often because of the difficulty in breaking down the broad statements in the NC Programmes of Study. My Small Steps of Progression for geometry may help, which is followed by an 'enlarging shapes' activity.
 
Ratio and egg sandwiches - give it a try for Easter
Ratio and egg sandwiches - give it a try for Easter
Teaching ratio is better understood when demonstrated, so start with a practical activity of making egg sandwiches and watch the maths roll on.

It also shows that maths is useful in everyday life and how ratios are used in cafes and kitchens to calculate quantities of ingredients.

More testing in schools - is there an alternative?
Trials for the new multiplication tables test in Year 4 start this month in selected schools, ready for a roll out in 2019 and compulsory testing in 2020. March 2018 also sees the start of a £10 million contract to develop and run Reception baseline assessment - only 2 years after trials were scrapped. There are many critics of these new assessments and the amount of national testing in primary schools. So what can be done?
 
Using Flip-Flops to practice multiplication facts
Using Flip-Flops to practice multiplication facts
Flip-Flops are a great resource for practising multiplication facts– simple to make and fun to use. I have had them as part of my maths kit for years (I think they first appeared in Number Work for Infants by Thomas and Bannister in 1974) and when I used them in a school recently the teacher had forgotten all about them, even though they had been one of her favourite resources in the past. So here’s a reminder.
