Maths resource of the week 23


Each week Craig Barton, creator of www.mrbartonmaths.com, picks out a TES maths resource that has caught his eye and records a short video about it. These videos will attempt to explain why Craig likes the resource, and offer up a few ideas about how it might be used in the classroom. If you have watched the video, downloaded the resource, and then used it in a lesson, it would be fantastic if you could return to this page to share your thoughts and ideas in the Comments section below, or to simply pass on your thanks to the author!

I am a massive fan of the theory behind Bloom's Taxonomy. The problem I have, however, is that it all sounds well and good in theory, but it is then often difficult to transfer this to practical resources that will have a positive impact on learning in the classroom. This is where DaveGale and Thoughts and Crosses come in. This is a resource structure that provides differentiation, and encourages students to attempt a whole range of different questions, challenging them to analysis, evaluate and apply. Dave has kindly produced examples of Thoughts and Crosses for Probability and Simultaneous Equations, and also provided a template for users to create their own. If you do, please share on TES as I think this resource is simply excellent.
