Planning to teach secondary maths

Recorded by experienced teachers, these videos offer advice and ideas for colleagues, especially less experienced colleagues such as NQTs, or non-maths specialists, and TAs/tutors teaching small groups.

Particularly useful for Covid recovery, they cover key learning points, assessing prerequisite knowledge, key questions, language, representations and common misconceptions and pitfalls. They also include lesson ideas and activities for students.

Each video is accompanied by a supporting document of notes, explanations and further resources, and the PowerPoint slides used in the video. These resources are below the video playlist and can be downloaded as zip files.

“I have found these extremely helpful. As an NQT, these resources have been very useful to help me sequence topics so that students can gain a better understanding, and they also give me really good ideas for the language to use when explaining.”
