Hello, and welcome to another episode of the Mr Barton Maths Podcast, with me Craig Barton.
This is another Conference Takeaways podcast, this time from the 2018 JustMaths Conference at Alton Towers! I am once again joined by my co-host Jo Morgan (@mathsjem on Twitter and the creator of the online bible of maths resources, resourceaholic.com) to share our key thoughts and takeaways from the selection of workshops we were lucky to see.
We discuss the following things, and much more besides:
- Jo’s new favourite maths resource sites
- How AQA are using exam questions in interesting ways
- How Mel and Seagar get their incredible GCSE results – including the Foundation Paper challenge!
- Why I am both dangerous and clueless?
- What Ofqual had to say about last year’s GCSEs?
- How Edexcel reacted to Year 11’s amazing tweets about their exams
I really hope you find this discussion useful, whether you attended the conference or not. Thanks so much for Jo for taking the time to talk to me, to the JustMaths team for putting on such a fun event.
Thanks so much for listening, and I really hope you enjoy the show!
I am a maths teacher, currently teaching at Thornleigh Salesian College, Bolton, UK. Here are links to some of my work:
