My vision is to help children experience maths – visual, open, deep maths – in all its richness. An overwhelming number of the teachers that I meet share this passion. I’m also acutely aware of the huge time and energy constraints that we operate within every day. That’s why I See Maths was set up: to provide practical ideas and resources to enrich lessons.
My plan for achieving this is simple: work with people who make me a better teacher; teach loads of lessons in all age-groups; share the things that have worked well. The reaction to the I See Reasoning eBooks (LKS2 and UKS2) has been quite overwhelming (the KS1 eBook is in production) and there’s lots of free resources on iseemaths.com
Future plans, your help
Over the next few years, I’m totally committed to designing a range of affordable (and many free) resources to make it easier for teachers to deliver great lessons. There’s I See Reasoning – KS1; I want to make a range of EYFS/KS1 apps; I’m working on an app that work like the calculation flipbooks; a range of rich problem-solving tasks are in the pipeline.
I’m after a team of people who will trial these ideas in their classrooms, let me know what they think of them and tell me how they can be improved. I’m going to email out new ideas to people on each mailing list (EYFS, KS1, LKS2, UKS2) to trial. No strings attached, it’s all free, there’s no obligation to reply. The ideas won’t be polished, but I hope people will find them thought-provoking.
There will only be emails to the KS1 list whilst the next eBook is in production, then I’m going to start working on the other projects. If you’re up for it, sign up here. Thanks!
