100 IDEAS: QUICK - EASY - INSPIRED - OUTSTANDING Teaching mathematics in the secondary school can be very demanding especially with the extra pressure of 'no notice' Ofsted inspections. In this fully updated book Mike Ollerton offers strategies and activities for you to integrate into your everyday teaching to ensure your lessons are consistently outstanding and include all the mathematics skills secondary students need to study. Topics include algebra, fractions, geometry and measurement, as well as domino and dice games and an exciting study of Fibonacci. Many of the ideas start from a very simple concept that can be developed into more challenging mathematics, allowing you to differentiate your teaching to inspire, challenge and motivate every student in your class. The book includes step-by-step instructions, diagrams to exemplify the techniques and teaching tips for the best ways to put the activities into practice. Your biggest problem will be deciding which idea to use first! Mike Ollerton has taught for 25 years in secondary schools and is now working as a teacher trainer.

These wonderful, rich lesson ideas offer powerful ways to learn mathematics and have the potential to engage every student in purposeful and enjoyable mathematical thinking. * Colin Foster, Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education, School of Education, University of Nottingham, UK *
One of the things I particularly like about the activities in this book is that they provide equality of opportunity in the classroom as they are accessible to all whilst allowing for differentiation by outcome. * Andrea Pitt, Senior Teaching Fellow Centre for Education Studies University of Warwick *
Mike's ideas don't depend on the teacher's style or personality. Anyone will be able to integrate them into their teaching. Their initial simplicity hooks the students and helps to establish the idea that everyone can do maths. * Corinne Wolfe, Maths Teacher and Maths and Creativity Workshop Leader *
If you're the kind of Mathematics teacher that notices palindromic dates and refers to factors of numbers as 'gazintas' then '100 ideas for Outstanding Maths Lessons' is the book for you. Ollerton's book is packed full of enriching ideas to provide your students with the challenge and intrigue that underpins any outstanding Mathematics lesson. I'll be planning dominoes, 99-squares and Geoboards into my upcoming lessons, based on just some of the ideas presented in this book, thank you Mike! * Paul Collins, Maths teacher @mrpcollins *
