# Tes Maths: CIMT collection

## Make even the trickiest of maths topics accessible with the help of these CIMT teaching materials

For years, CIMT have been my first port of call when looking for high-quality practice questions, but not enough maths teachers seem to be familiar with them! So, this month I have made it my mission to change that.

I’ve selected some of my favourite CIMT resources, arranged by year group from Year 7 right through to GCSE. From lesson plans and teaching notes, to mental tests and mini-investigations, each unit is jam-packed with ideas. Surely there’s no better way to prepare students for the demands of the new GCSE....
