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.
In my experience, students, in general, find the concept of a mean straightforward to calculate and understand. However, the mean alone does not provide a complete picture of a set of data. To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]
Solving problems with angles in parallel lines is like solving a murder mystery. One clue leads on to the next and the next until the murderer is found. However, it doesn’t end there. The detectives need to explain their reasoning in court using the relevant laws and procedures should the murderer plead not guilty. If […]
An equation is when one expression, or term, is equal to another. To solve an equation means to find the value of the variable (represented by a letter) that makes the two expressions equal. There are two types of equations for secondary school mathematics, linear and none-linear. In this blog I write about how I […]
