Who should I follow on Twitter for Maths?
thecatfromjapan · 19/10/2017 22:19
I'm primary school level but interested in secondary school maths (GCSE anyway), so who should I follow on Twitter?
I have one or two at the moment (I've forgotten who they are!) and I'd appreciate suggestions for more.
DreamingofBrie · 19/10/2017 22:44
I like Resourceaholic, @mathsgem.
thecatfromjapan · 19/10/2017 22:46
Thank you, DreamingofBrie. (You're up late!)
Any more? Any Maths Hubs? Or an equivalent of 'TeamEnglish'?
DreamingofBrie · 19/10/2017 22:57
I'm marking .
Some great problems which really made my GCSE and A-level students think, from @ukmathstrust
@mrcartermaths has a great website for differentiated tasks. Also @drfrostmaths has brilliant resources for the new A-Level.
@mrbartonmaths has a nice Diagnostic Questions website for GCSE and @whiterosemaths has some great stuff for lower school and GCSE.

MathsTrust and WhiteRose I think I have - and like - so double thank yous for these, I suspect I'll love them.
Hope you're enjoying the marking.

A very new account which has only posted 2 Tweets so far, but it's run by a friend who would be encouraged by getting more followers.
thecatfromjapan · 19/10/2017 23:17
Happy to oblige, Third .
Babypythagorus · 19/10/2017 23:21
And anyone he chats to about maths
TheFallenMadonna · 19/10/2017 23:22
#mathscpdchat on a Tuesday at 7pm.
MsAwesomeDragon · 19/10/2017 23:22
There is a "team maths". I like resourceaholic and mrbartonmaths too.
Corbettmaths hasn't been mentioned yet, I like their 5aday stuff for GCSE revision.
thecatfromjapan · 19/10/2017 23:41
Ooh, thank you.
This is looking fab!
Many thank yous to you.
DreamingofBrie · 19/10/2017 23:56
I also like the geometry problems from @solvemymaths.
@piximaths has a comprehensive list of resources but I've found a few errors lately in her scatter diagrams and stem and leaf diagrams worksheets,
thecatfromjapan · 19/10/2017 23:59
Thanks for these.
My Twitter feed is going to be a strange muddle of English, Maths, Fashion and Politics (mainly Brexit!). I may have to send out an SOS in 'Chat' for kittens.

Gareth Metcalfe maths is good. He does a lot of great reasoning tasks.
noblegiraffe · 21/10/2017 12:02
I think DreamingofBrie posted most of the ones I would have!
@Just_Maths resources and blogs about maths issues
@studymaths Jonathan Hall writes the mathsbot and formtimeideas websites.
@EmathsUK Mark McCourt - Ex-Director of NCETM, very critical of how Mastery is being implemented, trying to solve the qualified maths teacher shortage by building a fully resourced maths curriculum (Complete Maths).
@MrMattock Maths head, retweets interesting stuff, good blog as well
@MathsEcho - maths echo chamber account retweeting any good maths blogs
@MrBartonMaths was mentioned upthread, he also does podcasts where he interviews prominent maths teachers (and others like Tom Bennett, Dylan Wiliam), including most of the tweeters on this thread. They are long, but usually interesting mrbartonmaths.com/podcast/

This is fantastic - you are all so great.
I hope you're all looking forward to a lovely, restful but fun-filled half term (with no marking, planning and resource-making. ).
thecatfromjapan · 21/10/2017 19:57
I'm really excited now.
noblegiraffe · 21/10/2017 21:34
Why GCSE maths in particular?
thecatfromjapan · 21/10/2017 21:59
noble, because our PGCE instructors insisted that we needed to be on top of our own Maths to at least GCSE level to ensure we could properly teach primary Maths - so it's to keep my hand in, really. I'm also a. interested generally and b. I like to know what's going on at that level in secondary.
thecatfromjapan · 21/10/2017 22:01
Oh, and why Maths, rather than anything else? Well, I looked at my Twitter feed and I have a lot of English already. Other subjects, I'm happy to be general interest about (don't want Twitter overkill).
