A-Level Maths Resources for Teachers and Students

March 10

Newsletter March 2010

 

We're tired of talking about ourselves. What about all those other great maths sites out there? Surely they deserve a mention! Here are just a couple.

Firstly, the National Centre for Excellence in Teaching Maths (ncetm.org.uk) provide a one-stop-shop for all things teaching maths, including discussion forums, CPD ideas and occasional opportunities to benefit from teaching project grants. There's also a great magazine. There are a series of RSS feeds available (https://www.ncetm.org.uk/feeds). What are RSS feeds? NCETM even explain that for you: https://www.ncetm.org.uk/news/about_feeds .

NRICH is another of our favourites (http://nrich.maths.org). You can find a maths problem here for any topic you'd care to imagine, then some more. Questions appropriate for A-Level are in the 'Stage 5' section. This month the site is looking a little different, with a focus on student projects, since as you know, investigation can be such a powerful way to develop understanding.

I hope these come in helpful and I'll try to mention a few more next month.

Until then, all the best.
