Essential, essential resource banks that I have found invaluable and a good starting point for lesson planning, inspiration and ideas.
The TES teaching resources in particular Mr Barton‘s Secondary Maths Collections. It is free and easy to sign up and the possibilities are endless!
2) Mr Barton
Although already mentioned, Mr Barton is such a great website it needs a mention of its own. This website is run by a UK mathematics teacher. Great resources including bingo, collective memories and an impressive collection of tarsia puzzles suitable for key stages 3 to 5. This website is free, no sign in is required but please support Mr Barton by linking to Amazon through his page!
In particular the mathematics resources are great. The site is easy to navigate, signing up is required but easy to do.
This part of the site is free, unbeknown to many. It has many resources organised by topic, many downloadable Powerpoints, Smartboards and printable worksheets.
Wow, this has it all. Their schemes of work are available but the great thing is they include many resources that are innovative. Look out for their collect a letter resources. We loved this idea so much that we have created many collect a letter or joke resources (links to our resources to follow soon). Thank you Hemsworth Arts and Community College mathematics faculty for sharing your inspiring teaching approaches. No sign up required.
Among many great resources look at the revision and exam material, great for practice and/or homework sheets. No sign up required.
7) Mathed Up
Resources, including teaching Powerpoints for key stages 3, 4, 5. Key Stage 5 material is a great starting point for anyone who is new to teaching A Level mathematics (as I was two years ago). No sign up required.
Do not miss the interactive schemes of work available to download for free from Kangaroo Maths. Each scheme of work links to ready to use resources, I have found the level ladders very handy!
These website is a must for puzzles and developing pupils lateral thinking skills. We particularly like the posters for there great aesthetics, copy and display on the whiteboards or add to school newsletter/website.
Although aimed at Key Stage 2 (i.e. level 4 and below), I have found resources here useful for teaching SEN (Special Educational Need) pupils and some great starters to keep those basics fresh in pupils minds.
These ten sites are few of many websites I use on a regular basis. There are also some great blogs I have read detailing their best online resources. Check out Colleen Young’s latest Top >10 websites and Mr Barton’s links to the best websites in the world.
