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.
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!!
