Maths and Maths Teaching
Here is a selection of blogs and pages I like based around maths, and maths teaching:
Firstly I’d like to mention Dave Gale’s (@reflectivemaths) Reflective Maths Teacher Site It is one I have gathered many ideas from and have been entertained by no end. This was one of the blogs that inspired me to write my own.
Jo Morgan (@mathsjem) over at Resourceaholic has a great blog which includes the “Maths Gems” series, and again the wider site has plenty of stuff there. Jo also curates the nice “Maths Pret Homework” page.
Another excellent, blog is this from Andy Lyons. Mr Lyons Maths, as the site is called, has a great collection of pedagogy, esources and policy.
Sam Shah (@samjshah) has a great blog, with the best name, Continuous Everywhere but Differentiable Nowhere, full of excellent discussion on maths and maths pedagogy, and he also presides over the excellent Betterqs which is contributed to by many excellent teachers.
Another that I have learned a lot from is Emily Hughes’s (@ilovemathsgames) I love maths games which is a great place to discover teaching ideas and resources, and a fantastic place to investigate puzzles, maths games and solo taxonomy.
Don Stewards “median” is phenomenal for resources and rich tasks.
Jennifer Writes about maths, is a great little site with some awesome stuff on it.
The Aperiodical has some great stuff on there from all areas of maths by many authors.
The Math Less Travelled by Brent Yorgey is a fantastic blog with some great explanations and discussions on maths.
For a comprehensive list of over 300 maths blogs (that I have not yet managed to visit all of, but I do intend to) then visit ( http://davidwees.com/content/mathematics-education-blogs ). David’s blog has some great stuff, so don’t limit yourself just to the list!
There are also 2 Maths blog “Carnivals” which move from guest host to guest host. Both are definitely worth checking out. There is the “Carnival of Maths” which host anything maths based, and “Math(s) Teachers at Play” which is restricted to pre university level stuff.
TES Maths podcast (hosted by THE Mr Barton! – who also tweets as @TESMaths) ): great podcast aimed at maths teachers, discussing maths teaching and resources.
Also Numberphile is a great website including many, many videos about maths.
There are many great ones, and I’ve probably missed some I love, I will try to keep adding more as I remember and as I discover more.
