Learning Mathematics at Home

Are you studying Mathematics at home?

Several posts and pages here may be useful. See:

Back in 2014 I was using free samples from Bring on the Maths resources with my students. A whole series of activities where you must pick out the correct answers is provided. Activities are available for young children right through to Advanced Level.

I must recommend the free samples from Bring On the Maths, the Core 3 activity – Logarithmic equations worked really well with my Year 13 class and next week I’ll use the C4 Binomial Expansion resource when we are talking about the validity of a given expansion. I have used the Trigonometric Ratios resource before – and will again; there are several other great resources in that list of samples – explore!

Kangaroo Maths
Bring on the Maths Logarithmic Equations
Free access is available to the complete set of these resources on the old Kangaroo Maths site. Log in with the user and password as above to access all the resources. This will give access to all the activities for students from Key Stage 2 right through to A Level – note that this being the old site, the resources are aligned to earlier schemes of learning but still so useful.

Looking at the old level 5 and 6 Algebra resources for example, we could try Simplifying Expressions  or Constructing and solving equations.


Distance Learning will be demanding, it’s certainly a chance to read more or perhaps get away from screens and listen to a story. For as long as schools are closed, Audible are providing stories which are free to stream on a desktop, laptop, phone or tablet. An extensive collection of stories, including titles across different languages is available. No accounts or passwords are needed. See Audible’s ‘How to Use Stories‘ and start listening; note the menu where children can select by age.


White Rose
White Rose Maths has so many free high quality resources, see for example Secondary Schemes of Learning and Assessments for End of Block or End of Term. Check their Home Learning, the White Rose Maths Team has prepared a series of five maths lessons for each year group from Year 1-8. More will be added each week for the next few weeks. Every lesson comes with a short video showing  clearly and simply how to help children to complete the activity successfully.

The summer term includes work on consolidation for the year, see this collection from Nicola Whiston who has started a collection of Knowledge Organisers which followAlgebra KO extract Nicola Whiston

the White Rose Schemes of Learning, she is sharing the collection here, via Dropbox. These are really attractive.


CK-12 Foundation has created a resource page with hand-picked lessons in math and science popular during the month of March.

And of course you will need a break, maybe a puzzle? Try Futoshiki and other puzzles.
