As a Head of Maths I understand the importance of a detailed, flexible and simple scheme of work. I designed the Key Stage 3 and GCSE schemes of work for maths teachers available at mr-mathematics.com to be just that. They are fully aligned with the current specifications and are suitable for study across all UK examination boards including Edexcel, AQA, WJEC and OCR.
The schemes provide a long and medium term plan for the entire Key Stage 3, Foundation and Higher GCSE courses. They emphasise helping teachers to create pace and challenge for every class as each lesson draws on and extends previous learning so progress is fluid and rapid.
Linked within the schemes are engaging, interactive and fully differentiated presentations that are designed to empower the teacher to enthuse their students. The presentations are available as a Smart Notebook, ActivInspire Flipchart and Microsoft PowerPoint. Every lesson comes with a plan to talk the teacher through the flow of the presentation and independent learning worksheet for consolidation. There are additional links to informative blogs, group work activities, YouTube videos and much more.
Every lesson and maths worksheet has been designed and used by myself. As well as a Head of Maths I am a certified teacher trainer and Master of Education specialising in Research in Mathematics Education. These schemes of work for maths teachers represent my intention to help improve mathematics education around the world.
Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach. The feeling of success is addictive. The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it. Teaching […]
To find the equation of straight line graphs students need to calculate the gradient using two pairs of coordinates and the intercept which is the y value of where it crosses the vertical axis. Examiner’s reports of past exam questions show students are more able to find the intercept of a straight line than they […]
Students learn how to generate and describe arithmetic and geometric sequences on a position-to-term basis. Learning progresses from plotting and reading coordinates in the first quadrant to describing geometric sequences using the nth term. This unit takes place in Term 4 of Year 10 and is followed by the equations of straight line graphs. Arithmetic […]
