Questions to stimulate Mathematical thinking
To aid consistency in my team and to make sure students were all given the same levels of challenge from their teachers i wanted to display prompts at the back of classrooms to act as easily accessible questions for my department to pose to students when involved in discussions.

I was inspired by this excellent article written by Jenni Way, available here: and her subsequent addendum: and set about using these questions as my prompts for classrooms. These have now all been laminated and are all placed on washing lines at the back of every Maths classroom in the school.
