#GWRDay15 – The World’s Largest Maths and Science Lesson (3rd November 2015)

On Tuesday 3rd November 2015 Bubbly Maths are trying to initiate the world’s largest ever maths and science lesson. See the tweet below from Richard Cowley (@RiCowley):

It sounds like an exciting idea with the 100 minute lesson being designed collaboratively between the writers of nrich.maths.org and teachers from the Cambridge Maths Hub school. There may also be a possibility to be involved in the World’s Largest Balloon Class – learning to twist balloons and join them together to make a DNA double helix!

I like the idea of participating and have suggested it to my school. You can register your interest here.

First blog post

I am strongly in support of sharing ideas and resources and believe it to be an important factor in developing as a teacher. I also think that making use of research can help to inform our practice and widen our mind sets and ideologies. As such I hope to make use of this blog (irregularly) as a way of sharing some of my ideas, discussions and resources for use in mathematics education.

I am only entering my NQT year in September, so I don’t claim to know all (or in fact much!) about mathematics education, or teaching in general. I am, however, constantly expanding my knowledge and developing my practice and so I hope some of my ideas will be well received and made use of. I will be open to comments and feedback on all of my posts and hope it is useful!

In the meantime here are a list of some of the mathematics education blogs I have recently come across via Twitter:

These are all excellent and there are so many more out there too!!
