Teaching sequences

Every now and again I post one of my favourite teaching sequences (note: nothing to do with mathematical sequences) on Twitter. They seem to go down well, and it was suggested I collate them into a blog post. Here is the collection so far.

Hopefully, at some point, I will try and explain the logic behind each of them, but the aim and drive when writing them was simple: to maximise the chances of all students being successful. You may notice that there are some common themes occurring in these sequences, however.

Note: I am in no way suggesting this is how these ideas should be taught. These are merely sequences from our curriculum that I’ve enjoyed thinking about, playing around with, and teaching.

A new sequence designed to address a relatively new topic to GCSE Maths which our students seemed to be struggling with. A more detailed explanation can be found here.

That’s it for now. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
