Don Steward – sum and product, March 2013

There can only be one post to write this weekend; I was so sad to hear of the death of Don Steward, such an inspiration to Mathematics teachers, I’ll simply share some resources as **Jo Morgan has suggested**.

I was delighted to meet Don Steward at the event Jo mentioned in her own post, a Saturday morning she organised at her old school, **#mathsmeetglyn with Don Steward **(Jo has included all the slides from his presentation in her post), and again later at the 2018 ATM – MA London Branch Summer Conference; he was such an engaging presenter, his passion and enthusiasm for Mathematics shone through each time I heard him.

ATM in this **news item** have included an early **article from Mathematics Teaching **giving an account of a lesson and his reflections on it.’

On Don Steward’s Median blog, his posts are carefully tagged so for example, for a superb collection of ideas and student exercises for solving linear equations see all **Don Steward’s posts tagged linear equations**. Many of these outstanding resources use a very visual approach with very clear diagrams to help students’ understanding.

In all his posts, Don takes a problem and develops it so well, really getting students thinking. As with many posts a PowerPoint is available, check the **diffy PowerPoint** for some brilliant ideas.

Don Steward has so many outstanding resources on his **Median blog**, including multiple choice quizzes, see this on **rearrangement** for example. Note that he also has a separate **blog for GCSE practice resources. **many of these quizzes are multiple choice.

A lovely tribute to Don, who will be sorely missed. Some of us remember him in his role as Shropshire Maths Advisor in the early 1990s, a role which he filled superbly.
