Selecting maths resources
Selecting maths resources Career Stage - Highly Accomplished Main Focus area - 3.4 School - Pleasant Street Primary School The teacher uses a ‘whole-part-whole’ teaching strategy in a year 3/4 mathematics lesson in which students are learning to add, subtract and divide whole numbers and parts of numbers. To support the learning, the teacher uses a software program in which students can apply the skills in a ‘real life’ situation. While most students are using an interactive learning object, the teacher works with an extension group who are learning about decimals. A teacher colleague supports the teacher in the classroom. http://www.aitsl.edu.au/australian-professional-standards-for-teachers/illustrations-of-practice/detail?id=IOP00170

Learn fraction with easy activity A fraction (from Latin fractus, "broken") represents a part of a whole or, more generally, any number of equal parts. When spoken in everyday English, a fraction describes how many parts of a certain size there are, for example, one-half, eight-fifths, three-quarters. A common, vulgar, or simplefraction (examples: {\displaystyle {\tfrac {1}{2}}} and 17/3) consists of an integer numerator displayed above a line (or before a slash), and a non-zero integer denominator, displayed below (or after) that line. Numerators and denominators are also used in fractions that are not common, including compound fractions, complex fractions, and mixed numerals. The numerator represents a number of equal parts, and the denominator, which cannot be zero, indicates how many of those parts make up a unit or a whole. For example, in the fraction 3/4, the numerator, 3, tells us that the fraction represents 3 equal parts, and the denominator, 4, tells us that 4 parts make up a whole. The picture to the right illustrates {\displaystyle {\tfrac {3}{4}}} or ¾ of a cake. Fractional numbers can also be written without using explicit numerators or denominators, by using decimals, percent signs, or negative exponents (as in 0.01, 1%, and 10−2 respectively, all of which are equivalent to 1/100). An integer such as the number 7 can be thought of as having an implicit denominator of one: 7 equals 7/1. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgiOcIh-xp6jeiBRyvft5vA https://m.facebook.com/Keep-Learning-Keep-Growing-1445959175502505/?ref=bookmarks Thank you

The Ministry of Maths - a maths resource for sparky teachers
This video is part of 'The M Files' - a creative maths resource from the folks at Sparky Teaching. The aim of the resource is to get your pupils reading maths questions more carefully. The idea is that the people who write maths questions (The Ministry of Maths) are cunning individuals with one aim - to catch out pupils. 'The M Files' is a series of leaked documents from the Ministry, showing your pupils some of the "tricks" they get up to and encouraging them to read maths questions more carefully as a result. We hope it sparks your imagination.

What else could there be? Remember that playing gags is an artform. It must be done with love in your heart.

Algebra revision race: TES Maths Resource of the Week
What is it? I love a relay race. Okay, it can become a little bit on the hectic side, but in my experience this is more than made up for by the fact that students seem to get through considerably more work than they would in a normal lesson. There is something about the increased levels of engagement and focus that such competition brings. And this relay activity is particularly impressive given that it covers most of the key algebra skills that students will need for their GCSEs. Throughout the 10 rounds we cover expanding brackets, factorising, substitution, solving linear equations and identifying expressions, equations and formula. The choice and progression through the questions is outstanding. Best of all the answers are also provided, saving us busy teachers a good amount of precious minutes. How can it be used? This activity is perfect for GCSE revision, but also more than suitable for younger year groups. The rounds increase in difficulty, so there is no problem chopping off a few of the later rounds if they prove too challenging. The author provides some really nice suggestions and variations for running this activity, and I can do little better than to share their thoughts: Depending on ability I give different guidance. For top groups I say how many are incorrect but do not identify which ones and for lower ability I point out the questions they need to work on. Makes for a very fun and competitive lesson. Feel free to make up your own rules to direct the game. I use time outs for cheating (or running!) and give a merit to the pair who has completed the most rounds. For some groups I create an accuracy prize as well so it's not all about speed.

Teach for understanding: TES Maths Resource of the Week
What is it? I dread to think how many department meetings I have say through over the course of the last 13 years, and likewise what proportion of that time has been spent doing painful admin - filling out forms, checking dates, writing predictions, etc. Bringing meaningful, effective CPD into such meetings can be a tricky business, but this lovely resource offers one possibility. It is called “Teaching for Understanding”, and its stated aim is to encourage discussion amongst maths teachers about how to teach for understanding instead of tricks. A variety of topics are presented, including fractions, indices and negative numbers, and teachers are challenged to write down: 1. The method - the basic approach 2. The understanding - why does the method work? 3. The bigger picture - how and where does this topic fit in the real world application? How can it be used? I am a great believer in the power of habit. Too many times I have seen a good teaching idea, hammered it to death for a couple of weeks, and then never returned to it. Students only really see the benefit once something become habitual. I believe the same is also true for something like this resource. Use it once in a departmental meeting, and you are unlikely to see much long-term benefit.; However, make this a regular part of meetings - it should only take around 10 minutes to fill-in and discuss once colleagues are used to how it works - and the benefits could be significant. It is an opportunity for colleagues of all experiences and backgrounds to share their knowledge, expertise and opinions in a positive, structured way,. And it is fascinating to see the different approaches.I highly recommend giving it a try.

Teachers TV: Primary Maths - Shape and Space
Teachers at Cuffley School share three of their best maths ideas about shape and space. Years 2 and 3 explore the characteristics of different shapes using elastic. Firstly they use elastic bands on their fingers. Then with long pieces of elastic they make large shapes in the classroom using their bodies. At The Wroxham School Year 1 go on a shape hunt. This school has a Jeep on the school field and a motorbike and sidecar in the library! The children are enthused by finding mathematical shapes in the real world. Back at Cuffley School Year 3 are turning 2D in to 3D shapes. Using drinking straws and modelling dough they have to construct 3D shapes from 2D diagrams, drawing on their geometrical knowledge. In the plenary the children play a game where they have to listen to the properties of a shape being described, then guess what 3D shape it is. All the activities in this programme show aspects of geometry, shape and space using creative and absorbing ideas. Licensed to CPD College Ltd.

What went wrong?: TES Maths Resource of the Week
What is it? I have always been a believer that a sound knowledge of possible students misconceptions is one of the keys to successfully planning and teaching a given topic. When we are aware of potential misconceptions, we can plan for them - arming ourselves with explanations and supporting resources - as opposed to being caught out in the heat of the moment by unexpected errors that we must attempt to diagnose and resolve with 30 expectant faces staring up as us. That is one way this exceptional resource can help. It is a collection of 90 common Key Stage 2 students errors, presented in the format of What Went Wrong? There are some absolute classics here, such as: Rebecca simplifies 4/9 to 2/4.5. What went wrong? Alexia is working out the area of a triangle. She adds the base and height and then multiplies by two. What went wrong? Mohamed is multiplying 10.1 by 100. He says the answer is 10.100. What went wrong? And although this resource has been designed with Key Stage 2 students in mind, I know it will be of great use with my Key Stage 3, and even Key Stage 4, classes. How can it be used? I can see two main uses for this wonderful resource. The first is as a planning tool. It is an excellent way to inform teachers of all experiences - but in particular those who have not been teaching for long - of where students are likely to go wrong. This enables us to plan for these errors. But it can also be used in lessons. Once students have been taught the correct way to do something, and practiced this method, they can then be presented with a selection of misconceptions and challenged to explain what went wrong. This could lead to some fascinating, fruitful discussions, as well as helping students develop the ability to articulate and argue their thoughts about mathematics. But one word of caution - I would be careful to ensure that students have experienced the right way of doing something plenty of times first, otherwise they may be just as likely to remember and reproduce what went wrong as what went right!

Connect 4 Fractions: TES Maths Resource of the Week
To access the resource and join in the discussion, or to view all the other Maths Resources of the Week in this series, just visit https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/blog/maths What is it? Students first encounter operations with fractions in primary school, and yet I have taught many Year 11s who still require practice some seven years later. In such situations, it is important to keep the practice as varied as possible, so that students who have had bad experiences with fractions in the past do not immediately assume that they also will not be able to do it this time around. That is why I love this resource. Students have the opportunity to practice all four operations - first with proper fractions, then with mixed number fractions - in the context of a gem of Connect 4. There is an answer grid provided, but students are not told which answer goes with which question, hence the opponent has every incentive to carefully check their rival’s work. How can it be used? An activity like this would work really well at the end of a unit on fraction operations, or as a revision activity for a class who have studied this in the past. The danger with games is that students think more about the game than the maths involved, but this should not be the case here. Reminding students that they need to check each other’s work is a good way to ensure both parties pay full attention for all of the game, instead of each merely being interested in their own move. I also like to give each student a Calculator Token, which can be exchanged one to check an opponent’s answer. This has the added advantage of encouraging students to carefully consider when best to use this support, which helps them evaluate the complexity of each question. Thanks so much for sharing Craig Barton

GCSE Maths Intervention Pack: TES Maths Resource of the Week
What is it? I often worry about the effectiveness of so-called Intervention in the build up to GCSE. This usually comprises of taking students out of tutor time, or even other subjects, to work in small groups or one-to-one with a teacher or teaching assistant. This is fine, and there is no doubt that any extra help can only be of benefit, but how do we know how effective the intervention has been? This is where this lovely resource, specially on Representing Data, comes into play. Not only does it provide material to use in the intervention session itself (no more frantically searching through textbooks or past papers fro appropriate questions), but also an objective way to measure how successful the intervention has been. How can it be used? There are three parts to this resource, but I am going to make a case for a fourth! There is a pre-test, which is ideal for deciding which students would benefit for the topic-specific intervention. This could be given as a quick in-class assessment, and even marked by the students themselves. Then there is the Intervention Booklet, rammed full of top-quality questions perfectly aligned to the new Maths GCSE. This could be used in the intervention sessions themselves, or taken by the student to complete at home. Finally, there is the post-test to see how much progress the student has made as a result of the intervention. This is a simple, but effective model. My only addition would be a second post-test to be given to the student around three weeks later. This would then enable you as a teacher to see which concepts have truly stuck, as opposed to simply dangling in the student’s short-term memory immediately following the intervention sessions. Such a test could easily be created by manipulating the numbers in the existing post test.

The Shanghai Approach to Teaching Maths
Professor Lianghuo Fan (Series Editor of The Shanghai Maths Project) explains the Shanghai Maths approach. Shanghai Maths is a pedagogical approach that Shanghai teachers have developed to help their students learning mathematics in their classrooms. Shanghai's One Lesson, One Exercise series has been continually refined over the last 24 years. It is a whole class teaching method that builds through understanding, develops higher order thinking and is supported by the use of high quality textbooks. Based on maths teaching in Shanghai, The Shanghai Maths Project provides complete coverage of the maths curriculum for England. Discover more at www.collins.co.uk/ShanghaiMaths
