TES Maths collection: Featured author, Dr Frost
Teaching is a unique profession. I can’t think of any other job where a person would spend hours and hours creating something amazing to make their lives easier, and then feel compelled to share it with the rest of their profession, with no expectation of reward. Teachers who share their work on TES are my heroes – for years they have been saving me time, improving my lessons, giving me inspiration, and helping my students reach their potential.
For this month’s collection, I wanted to showcase a sample of the work of one particular teacher whose name may be unfamiliar to some of you – Dr Frost.
Quite simply, his lessons and activities are brilliant. They are clearly laid out, contain examples, notes, questions and answers, and cover pretty much everything from key stage 3 right up to further maths A-level. They are all PowerPoint presentations or Word documents, so can be adapted, edited and merged with your existing lessons. Our students and teachers are currently Dr Frost mad!
So, thank you Dr Frost, and thank you to all who share. You help make TES what it is.
