MathsClass is about teaching and learning in a maths classroom.
2014: In recent years my online focus has been in developing a network of maths websites, "the MathsLinks Network".
When I first started this blog (2007), my intention was to write about using technology in the maths classroom. However, using technology in the classroom wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. This blog shifted focus to being more generally about teaching in the maths classroom.
This site will be a place for gathering ideas, sharing what works and listening to the experiences of others (i.e. you, feel free to comment).
Posts will be a mix of…
and more generally
I’m a fairly practical person, and this will be obvious in this blog. Most posts will hopefully be something you can use tomorrow, or the next day.
MathsClass is written by Simon Job, a teacher in his ninth (2014) year of maths teaching in a public high school in Western Sydney, Australia; previously an electrical engineer working in telecommunications and IT.
