Head of Mathematics and also a teacher of Economics. My previous roles have seen me teach abroad as well as an AST, so lots of experience looking at how pupils learn and structuring teaching to promote progress. My passion is teaching and learning, quite simply. All my resources are very systematic, attractive, organised and should be easy to follow and use.

This contains 82 whole lessons and resources to teach the different aspects of the entire Economics course. UPDATED! Also included is a two zip files with all the different worksheets and handouts of which there are LOTS! Most of the articles though are all available FREE in my shop under handouts. When I originally created the majority of the presentations/lessons was when I was teaching the Cambridge IGCSE and A -Level spec, and the book we used was by Moynihan and Titley, and was called the 'Complete Economics for Cambridge IGCSE and A-level'. However, I have taught the A-Level course since and it should cover the entire Edexcel A-Level syllabus and obviously the OCR GCSE course. I have used the PowerPoint slides to structure the lesson, specifically slides to prompt/force myself to ask those key questions at the right moments, slides to explain keywords with short and easy explanations, prompts for me the teacher when to use the different activities, games, handouts, articles etc... all lessons include answers, starters, plenary's and learning objectives . These resources have helped me as a teacher to be very organised, structured and stress-free... !! NOTE: please browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources.

Statistics: Histograms 1 - Drawing (+ worksheet)

This is a whole lesson introducing the topic of histograms. This is suitable for GCSE, IGCSE and S1 Statistics! This is a lesson that I got observed as outstanding. I have a follow-up lesson building upon this one !! This is arguably my favourite PowerPoint?

This part of the PPT is very clear and helps pupils not only know how to draw./ calculate them, which comes later, but what histograms are! 19 slides. It follows on with some excellent hinge questions, a quick question to check understanding and a very open worksheet, that could have several correct answers and raises some good questions!!

This is first lesson looking at negative numbers using the four different operations (add, subtract, multiply and divide) and lots of different real-life contexts. 16 slides. Lesson 1: looks at negatives in real life and starts to build on some of the rules for negatives. It comes with a handout (good for differentiation within classes) and a worksheet with answers.

Geometry: Area 6 - Compound Area / Compound Shapes

This is the sixth in a 7 lesson series on learning different area rules (extension being circles - which I teach as a separate series). This is available now as a bundle at a reduced price. I have found over the years, that teaching these lessons over more lessons than less pays dividends!! That it is often a subject skirted over quickly and then has to be retaught year after year. It is often a subject that even at KS4, pupils struggle over. To address this each of the lessons is very thorough on the different rules, with activities, handmade worksheets that are differentiated with trickier examples with answers, exam questions, problem-solving starters and plenaries.
