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!

Maths Hubs Shanghai Lessons Introduction (1/3)

In January 2018, colleagues from across the North Mids and Peaks Maths Hub were invited to observe Shanghai teachers delivering lessons key stage 1/2 students at Outwoods Primary School, Burton-on-Trent. This video provides the background to the teacher exchange and outlines the impact of a mastery approach.

“If the ‘why’ and the ‘how do you know’ and ‘how to decide’ is not a core part of your teaching and explanation, it can’t possibly be part of the pupils’ responses!”

Welcome to my Twitter feed

Hi @MaryBourassa - I was hoping to talk to you about recording an interview with you about the rather awesome @WODBMath website!

I record interviews about useful websites that maths teachers can use for free, and I think it would be really interesting to chat to you about it! 🙏

Has anyone got any experience of using Cornell note taking with KS3-5 students in maths?
