Secondary Maths Collection – Teachers TV – Excellent Practice and Ideas

TES Secondary maths resource collections

Collection Author: Craig Barton - Maths AST and creator of (TES Name: mrbartonmaths)

Teachers TV was a fantastic resource. It was jam-packed full of videos of excellent teaching practice across all subjects, age ranges and ability levels, stimulating and engaging in-class resources, examples of maths in the real world, studies of how children learn and the most effective ways to address this, behaviour management issues and strategies, and much, much more!

The bad news is that in the midst of all the budget cuts, funding for Teachers TV was removed, and the website closed. The good news is that TES now hosts 3500 Teachers TV videos, so they are available to watch again, completely free.

Due to rights issues, not all of the videos are here – most notably the Maths for Real series, featuring a young Ben Shepherd has been withdrawn by Channel 4 – but there is enough quality to make this a quality set of resources.

Below I have assembled all the best Teachers TV videos that demonstrate excellent practice and ideas to help the teaching of maths. I hope you find them useful.
