This is just a quick post to let you know about some improvements to resourceaholic.com and some upcoming events.

New Menus
Three years ago I set up my resource libraries, where I share hundreds of hand-picked resources for Key Stage 3, 4 and 5. I use these libraries everyday when I'm planning lessons. My aim is to ensure that teachers can quickly and easily access free, high quality resources for all secondary maths topics.

Over the last year I've added lots of resources for the new GCSE. I worry that my libraries are becoming hard to navigate, so I've added some new functionality.

At the top of each resource library, you will now find 'quick links'. The example below is taken from my number library. These links will take you straight to resources for each topic, which should save you time when you're planning lessons. I hope you find this helpful.

I have resource libraries for number, algebra, shape, data, core AS, core A2, statistics, further and mechanics. The best way to access my resource libraries is from the main menu at the top of the website. By September I will publish a resource library for the new A level too.

Other pages that might help you find what you're looking for on my blog include the blog archive, the gems page, and the side menus. There's a search tool on the sidebar too.

Upcoming Events
On my Conferences Page I list maths conferences in the current academic year.

On Sunday 7th May I'm going to Stuart Price's A level event Maths in the Sticks. I attended this event last year and it was really good - particularly because it includes a delicious roast dinner and a glass of wine!

On Saturday 24th June I'm going to La Salle's #mathsconf10. This is taking place in London (but not Central London like last time - those of you coming by train, note that it's all the way out in Zone 6). I always enjoy La Salle's conferences. I'm thinking about presenting at this one.

On Tuesday 27th June I'm excited to be going to Alton Towers for the JustMaths Conference. Representatives from the awarding bodies will be out in force at this event and it will be a good opportunity to take an in-depth look at the new GCSE shortly after the first sitting.

As I like maths conferences so much, I will probably go to #mathsconf11 on 8th July in Cardiff too.

I also plan to organise another maths teachers' trip to Bletchley Park - I'll provide more information on this soon.

Lots to look forward to!

Finally, just to mention that my revision posts are getting a lot of attention at the moment as exam season approaches:

And did you catch my recent posts?

Thanks for reading! I hope to see you at an event this summer.
