Maths resources for teaching, CPD and backed up by research and over 30 years experience.

A 22 slide PowerPoint that situates charts/graphs in the data handling cycle.
It covers collecting, presenting, sorting and analysing data along with bar charts, line graphs, pie charts, decision tree diagrams, two-way tables, flow charts, Venn diagrams, stem & leaf diagrams and scatter graphs.
There is at least a weeks material for GCSE lessons and will be useful for revision classes or an overview of the concepts involved. So, far instance, much greater depth would be required for averages. Please review it if you download it and do put it to good use.
The PowerPoint allows the teacher to introduce the key ideas to students via animated slides. Most of the ideas are easier to access through animation and slow reveal.

A 22 slide PowerPoint showing some really important maths concepts in concrete form and which pupils should be aware of. Cuisenaire rods are the main focus but enhanced with the counting stick to produce a powerful arsenal for additive reasoning.
It covers equivalence, inequalities, decimals, factors, primes, composites, fractions, squares and algebra.
There is at least a weeks material for all ages at primary school and applicable to secondary students who have gaps in their understanding. Please review it if you download it and do put it to good use.
The PowerPoint allows the teacher to introduce the key ideas to students via extensive use of animation. Most of the ideas are easier to access through animation and slow reveal.

A printable and editable bank statement for use in Key Stage 3 and GCSE Mathematics.
Created in Excel so different figures can be used. Two statements are given, one with negative entries and one without.
Please review since this is my first ever resource and I feedback would help me improve.

A single slide PowerPoint showing the main entries of a monthly wage slip.

A four page booklet bringing various approaches together that aim to improve how questions are asked in the maths classroom.
It is designed to be used for Maths Dept CPD rather than for teaching students although some slides would be useful for teaching.
It encourages teachers to ask better questions and to develop student questioning in Mathematics. It includes a modified Bloom’s taxonomy as a prism through which to see questions in Maths.

A short PowerPoint including examples, sheets and solutions of 3-dimensional (3D) combinations of cubes drawn on isometric paper as an introduction to plans and elevations. Some slides contain advice in the notes section.
If you feel this is useful do please provide feedback particularly for any improvements that could be made.

A progression of mental maths strategies for addition and subtraction from a basic level to GCSE level.
The strategies are grouped as ‘Change’, ‘Split’ or ‘Jump’. It invites students to change a problem, to an easier form, before splitting numbers or/and jumping along the virtual number line that exists in their heads.
This is a useful resource for Maths teachers of all age groups to see what are the next steps for their students and also to see the range of different possible strategies available.

A progression of mental maths strategies for multiplication and division from a basic level to GCSE level.
The strategies are grouped as ‘Change’ or ‘Split’. It invites students to change a problem, to an easier form, before splitting numbers, if necessary, to carry out a calculation.
This is a useful resource for Maths teachers of all age groups to see what are the next steps for their students and also to see the range of different possible strategies available.

A pdf of a 22 slide PowerPoint that shows some really important maths concepts in concrete form and which pupils should be aware of. Cuisenaire rods are the main focus but enhanced with the counting stick to produce a powerful arsenal for additive reasoning.
It covers equivalence, inequalities, decimals, factors, primes, composites, fractions, squares and algebra.
There is at least a weeks material for all ages at primary school and applicable to secondary students who have gaps in their understanding. Please review it if you download it and do put it to good use.
If you think this is good, think about purchasing the PowerPoint. It allows the teacher to introduce the key ideas to students via extensive use of animation. Most of the ideas are easier to access through animation and slow reveal.

A fantastic way to introduce number bases and reinforce place value. Based on the wonderful Global Maths project at https://www.explodingdots.org/.
The 32 slide PowerPoint includes animations, blank templates and mini explosions!
Please review if you download and use it.

One of a series of PowerPoints that use a card sort activity with Wacky Races characters.
The aim here is to position characters according to ordinal clues such as “Penelope Pitstop finished four cars ahead of Peter Perfect”.
High quality with gifs.
Please review if you put the ppt to use.

Isometric background in 5 colours. The backgrounds are not images copied from the internet. High quality. (Dotty paper, isometric paper).

The aim of this unit is to develop an understanding of some of the basic principles around personal money management.
Personal debt is a growing concern and understanding some of the basic principles when working out take home pay and budgeting principles for a household income helps develop an understanding of the value of money
If you use it please review.

A pdf of a 22 slide PowerPoint that situates charts/graphs in the data handling cycle.
It covers collecting, presenting, sorting and analysing data along with bar charts, line graphs, pie charts, decision tree diagrams, two-way tables, flow charts, Venn diagrams, stem & leaf diagrams and scatter graphs.
A Powerpoint version is available here:

Very useful techniques for GCSE Maths and GCSE Further Maths using the CASIO fx-83GT or fx-85GT CLASSWIZ calculators.
Don’t forget to provide feedback if you find the pdf useful.

A 33 slide PowerPoint showing an approach to multiplication for teenage students who have not rote learned them. It combines the Operational Principles with the area model of multiplication to empower students to apply a small number of tables to calculations (x1, x2, x3, x5 and x10).
It also covers the area model of division and mental strategies for multiplication and division.
It is aimed at Maths Dept CPD rather than for school students. It is pedagogical for Maths Teachers although some slides would be useful for teaching.
Years of experience of training Maths teachers, research and thinking has gone into this resource.
A free pdf of the PowerPoint is available.

Masters Dissertation September 2017
The findings of this 78 page research suggest that the age-effect plays a role in enrolment with older students more likely to access grammar schools and that the effect has a bearing on outcomes for GCSE English in both sectors and GCSE Mathematics in non-selective schools.

A 46 slide PowerPoint that introduces or utilises many mathematical concepts. Mainly for post-primary settings but elements could be used in primary.
A free pdf can be downloaded here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-12555186
There is at least a months material for lessons and will be useful for revision classes or an introduction to the concepts involved. Please review it if you download it and do put it to good use.
