Deep down inside, Mr Knott had always wanted to be a maths teacher
“It’s a great way of keeping in touch with the latest thinking and developments” “The NCETM portal provides a one-stop shop for teachers and leaders of mathematics” “Communities are an excellent way of finding out what others are doing as well as a good place to get advice on maths teaching ” “The resources are really useful too” “It can give you great comfort when you feel you are the only one with a certain problem and – hey presto, you find you are not!” I am enjoying using this portal, especially because when I need some inspiration to prepare sessions well, it helps me. “All in all, a very useful site”
