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.

When calculating the volume of a pyramid we can substitute the values of the length, width and perpendicular height into the formula V = 1/3 lwh. In my experience this is often provided for the students with little explanation as to why a volume of a pyramid is exactly one third the volume of a […]
When teaching solving 3D problems using trigonometry we begin the lesson with a recap of Pythagoras’ Theorem and the three trigonometric ratios. We do this by matching the ratio and equations to the respective right-angled triangle. Students are encouraged to work in pairs and to show the diagrams as part of the working out on […]
When I teach rounding to a significant figure, I ask the class to discuss in pairs or small groups a definition for the word significant. It is a word that all the students have heard before but not all are able to define. After 2 or 3 minutes of conversation I ask the students to […]
