Resourceaholic: 5 Maths Gems #161

Welcome to my 161st gems post. This is in which I share some of the most up-to-date information, thoughts and resources for maths teachers.

1. Mathematicians Display

For more classroom and corridor displays for maths departments, see my displays web page. 

2. Vectors Endeavor

It is really always wonderful to see new content on my favorite website MathsPad. They have now completed their curriculum booklets for all of Year 7, 8 and 9. These booklets are full of fantastic tasks – I use them all the time.
I also like their new free of charge Vectors & Quadrilaterals Worksheets. The thought is to operate out which variety of quadrilateral will be formed if you follow a sequence of vectors. This gives practice performing with vectors although prompting wondering about no matter whether pairs of vectors are equal in size, parallel or perpendicular, and encouraging mental visualisation. There are two stages of difficulty.

3. Certificate in Further Maths Sources

In my last put up I mentioned that I’ve set up a new web site linking to Certification in Further Maths sources. This can be accessed from the principal menu at the prime of my blog site. Since then, I have additional a few further means to this web site:

4. GCSE Revision 

In the Autumn term @MrsEVCartwright gives her Calendar year 11 college students a revision sheet per 7 days on a matter lined so significantly in the course. Every single sheet has a recap of the most important tips and tactics, followed by some inquiries to complete for homework that week. You can download this resource from TES.

Back again in Gems 155 I shared an additional GCSE revision resource – PowerPoint data files containing GCSE maths questions by subject matter for OCR, Edexcel and AQA. I subsequently awarded it a Gem Award for ‘Most Valuable Resource’ mainly because I use it all the time in my GCSE lesson preparing. @gcse_math has now shared this useful resource on its personal web page – isles. If you skipped this previously in the yr, do verify it out.

5. Area Value


Useful resource Libraries

If you’re new to training then you could possibly not know about my resource libraries which include listings of methods for Critical Levels 3 to 5, organised by topic. I use these libraries every single day when organizing classes as they supply a brief way to search top quality free means. 

I check out to hold my Vital Phase 3 and 4 libraries updated on an ongoing foundation, and when I begin instructing A degree once more following calendar year I’ll do some do the job on my A level libraries as well. One-way links in some cases get broken when men and women shift or delete their methods – if you come across a broken hyperlink then do enable me know! 

I also increase new assets rather often. For example I’ve not too long ago added additional back links to resources from Dr Austin Maths including jobs for indices, regular kind, factorising quadratics, inequalities and graphs.

The quickest way to obtain my useful resource libraries when you’re planning classes is working with the menu throughout the top of my website.


I’ve generally been accomplishing Diy over summer months and am now a bit fed up with painting. My property is in disarray (I presently do not have a bed room!) so I am looking ahead to returning to faculty on Thursday. I experienced a seriously attractive break however, which integrated a pretty sunny family members holiday break in a cottage in Cornwall, and a terrific night out with maths instructors at Jamie Frost’s home (thanks @nkl_17 for the picture!).

I am seeking ahead to meeting my new courses next Monday. I will be educating Calendar year 7, 8, 10 and 11, plus I have a Certification in Additional Maths course who will have classes immediately after school. My faculty very first opened four yrs in the past, so Summertime 2023 will be our initial at any time GCSE outcomes. It truly is a massive year for us! This yr we’ll also be placing up our new A amount courses completely ready for up coming September. In a couple of months we’ll be advertising for a Important Stage 5 Coordinator to be a part of our maths division – watch this house if you’re fascinated in making use of!

Very good luck to all people beginning in new educational facilities this 7 days, specifically ECTs, and fantastic luck to those people of you embarking on trainer coaching. September is these kinds of an exciting month.
