Tom Manners - Loves Talking Maths Teaching


I’m an SLE that loves discussing pedagogy with teachers and leaders and enjoy sharing my knowledge and interest as often as possible. I hope that the CPD, research, videos and interviews on my website give you access to just some of my enthusiasm.

We know that passion is key when delivering maths lessons – and if you have that, then you will want to work with me, as I have it in spades!

Guest video of the month

I regularly come across teachers who have no idea why “completing the square” is so-called. Representation allows everyone to see and understand this more easily. In this video, Eddie Woo demonstrates why the method has that name – a great example of conceptual understanding supporting prodcedural fluency.

Variation is… “a necessary component in teaching in order for students to notice what is to be learned ”

From Kullberg, A., Runesson, U. and Marton, F. ‘What is made possible to learn when using the variation theory of learning in teaching mathematics?’ (2017)

Welcome to my Twitter feed

So I've been told I now need glasses for reading/ close things. Never needed them before!

Is this an aftereffect of a year of constant Zoom calls and such the like?

Hey ho.... I like them 🙂

Decided to focus on family recently but all my #mathscpd videos remain free on my website

Includes videos on the @NCETM 5 big ideas & 20 episodes of my ResourceFULL series looking at fab maths resources.

Please share! I hope they can be useful to many!

*Pls RT so all schools, colleges, universities, teachers, SENCOs and parents w/ children who stammer can benefit*

I've created a series of posters on what stammering is and what you can do to support young people that stammer. Please let me know if you'd like a copy.
