Episode details

Ollie Lovell is a maths and science teacher from Australia, an author, and my longtime, bitter podcasting rival. We have decided to get together once a month to share three things we have each learned and get the other’s take on it.


  1. Be explicit about connections (05:27)
  2. A quadrilogy for worked examples (14:07)
  3. Expectations of teacher knowledge have fallen over time (29:44)
  4. The best use of iPads I’ve seen (41:21)
  5. Buy some timer dice! (52:02)
  6. Rewards for revision (54:55)
