The idea is that a teacher delivers these sessions to their colleagues in a department meeting or CPD session at an appropriate time (ideally when they are about to teach that topic).

Each pack covers subject knowledge, teaching approaches, misconceptions and resources.

The collection is growing very slowly! Please bear with me - these take a really long time to pull together. Each pack should take between 30 and 60 minutes to run through with colleagues. Please download the documents so that the animations and links work. Refer to the notes section on each slide for sources and comments.

I am very grateful to maths teacher and consultant Nikki Martin for providing a set of 'Topics in Depth' packs for primary teachers - I've shared these below.

**Topics in Depth Secondary Collection**

- Angles (straight line and triangle) and handout (first presented at #mathsconf10) +
*adapted version presented in this video with Craig Barton*

- Angles (parallel lines) and handout (first presented at #mathsconf13) +
*video version presented with Craig Barton*

- Angles in polygons (slides here) (produced for LUMEN)

- Area (first presented at #mathsconf30)

- Indices and handout (original version first presented at #mathsconf15) +
*adapted version presented in this video with Craig Barton*

- Order of operations +

- Unit conversions (presented at #mathsconf18)

- Surds (presented at #mathsconf22)

- Probability (presented at #mathsconfmini2)

- Exact Trig Values (presented at #mathsconf23: video here)

- Lowest Common Multiple (presented at #senecaCPD: video here)

- Pie Charts (slides here) (produced for LUMEN)

In the Marvellous Maths 2 course I present Topics in Depth sessions on Coordinates, Pythagoras and Decimals.

Secondary topics in depth slides contributed by other authors:

*Multiplying and dividing fractions (written by Andy Coleman)*

*Arithmetic Sequences (written by Nikki Martin)*

*Probability (written by Nikki Martin)*

**Topics in Depth Primary Collection**(with thanks to Nikki Martin @nikki_nzmartin)

A guide to using these packs

**Year 6:**Number and Place Value | Addition and Subtraction | Ratio and Proportion | Position and Direction | Properties of Shape | Statistics | Fractions | Algebra | Measure | Multiplication and Division

**Year 5:**Number and Place Value

**|**Measure | Statistics | Addition and Subtraction | Decimals and Percentages | Fractions | Multiplication and Division | Geometry - Properties of Shape | Geometry - Position and Direction |

**Year 4:**Statistics | Geometry: Position and Direction | Measure | Geometry | Multiplication and Division | Addition and Subtraction | Place Value | Decimals | Fractions

**Year 3:**Fractions | Measurement | Shape | Addition and Subtraction | Statistics | Place Value | Multiplication and Division

**Year 2:**Number and Place Value | Addition and Subtraction | Fractions | Geometry: Position and Direction | Geometry: Properties of Shape | Multiplication and Division | Measure | Statistics

**Year 1:**Place Value | Addition and Subtraction | Geometry - Shape and Space | Geometry - Position | Multiplication and Division | Measure

Hi Jo, I notice the Year 2 Measure's link leads to the same file as the Yr 2 Multiplication & Division.

ReplyDeleteOops, sorry! Fixed. Thanks for letting me know!

DeleteWow, as a starting teacher this is going to be my go to page before starting a topic! Thanks for sharing :-)

ReplyDeleteHi Jo

ReplyDeleteI know you have mentioned the newest topics are getting added soon... do you know when you hope to upload them by? I used your both of your angles resources recently in a subject knowledge cpd with my maths department and they were brilliant... Excited to see your stuff on units and circle theorems!

Thank you again.. these are great resources.

Hi. I’ll upload units after I’ve presented it at a conference on 9th March. I haven’t finished circle theorems yet - these take me so long! Sorry - slow progress!

DeleteGood job

ReplyDeleteHi! Nikki Martin's Topics in Depth seem to be password all of a sudden - do you know what might have changed?

ReplyDeleteHi. I mentioned this in a recent blog post and put a note about it on my homepage. Google changed all its security settings which broke all my links. If you want access, request it and I will action ASAP. Sorry.

DeleteHi Jo, I've enjoyed your topics in depth series, particularly your use of etymology of maths words. Just wondering if you've looked into why we use the word "term" in algebra? It doesn't seem to link to any other English equivalent meaning of the word and I can't see the connection between the word and its mathematical meaning.

ReplyDeleteAny ideas?

Hi. I have taken a photo of the entry 'term' in my book 'The Words of Mathematics'. Link below. Hope this helps!
