JustMaths was born from the passion and spirit of three full-time teachers who have a genuine belief in the power of collaboration and sharing ideas and best practice. We originally wanted to create a set of resources based around key topics – the main thing we have learnt over the years is that students need a highly focused, carefully targeted support package, giving them 200 video clips just doesn’t work! JustMaths Online was originally based around “The Top 40”, but it exploded (to support the 9-1 GCSE) into “The Big Fat 50”, and then “The Super 60”.
In the 12 months leading to the first sitting of the 9-1 GCSE, being so unsure of the tier of entry for our 3/4/5 students, we focused on the ‘Crossover’ topics from the DFE programme of study and the exam boards material. Covering the key topics that overlap the foundation and higher tiers is what really helped us deliver a stunning set of GCSE results in 2017. The brand new JustMaths Crossover package is almost expanding on a daily basis, with Seager’s voice and Mel’s resources becoming central to supporting fellow maths teachers across the country.
Through working with exam boards and other associations we’re ensuring that the work we’re doing at JustMaths is not only current but will also support us teachers through the evolving curriculum.
Whether this is your first visit to the site, or if you’re returning to catch up on the latest news from Mel’s blog or you decide to join the JustMaths Online family, we’d love to hear from you so please get in touch…
