What is it?

It has been an honour and a privilege to review and make videos on some of the absolutely outstanding resources that have been uploaded to the TES Maths website in 2014. More importantly, it has been great fun and of great value using them in the classroom with my students. Before we embark upon another year of top quality resources, I wanted to reflect upon 12 of my favourites:


ROTY12: Core 1 & 2 Revision notes are ideal for independent revision

ROTY11: Fantastic collection of lesson starters on Excel 

ROTY10: Gnomes Homes is a wonderful, engaging lesson 

ROTY9: San Gaku geometry problems are ideal for GCSE students 

ROTY8: A lovely lesson on comparing box and whisker plots 

ROTY7: Longer GCSE questions broken down for students 

ROTY6: This Guess Who game is engaging and versatile

ROTY5: Over 100 investigation ideas for GCSE and A Level 

ROTY4: I love this loci activity where students create the problems 

ROTY3: An entire library of resources for your maths department 

ROTY2: PRET Homeworks are interesting, useful and challenging

ROTY1: Lessons, worksheets, investigations & more all beautifully organised 


How can it be used?

In each of the videos that accompany these resources I have tried to suggest way they could be used and adapted in the classroom. Often, this comes from my own experiences of trying the activities out with my students and follow-ups, support and extension ideas naturally occurring. If you have any ideas yourself to share having used some of these resources, please share them in the Comments section.


Thank you so much to everyone who shares their resources, and let’s see what 2015 brings!
