It's been along time between posts - just a short note to regular readers to say I'm still breathing. It's been a very hectic year so far - teaching Year 12 Extension 2 mathematics for the first time (18 hours a week of very intense mathematics just with one class), and this term taking on the role of relieving head teacher. So not much time for reading blogs let alone writing them. Hopefully I will get back to blogging next term - lots of posts I would like to write based on recent experiences.
Some forthcoming topics I think readers may find interesting:
- Helping students (and parents) when faced with a poor result in a Year 9 half-yearly exam,
- The joy of the binomial gnomes - and the mystery of Yang Hoi's triangle,
- Teaching ideas for geometric series and inverse functions.
