**Underground Mathematics Review Questions**

A project started recently to look at the various **review questions available on Underground Maths** to support teaching of the A Level specification now has further review questions added.

Read about the **use of Review questions in the classroom** on this Teacher Support page. The fact that these questions are designed to test understanding of one or more topics, exercise problem-solving and proof skills and help students make connections make them ideal for use in the A Level classroom. They can be used to introduce a topic or are also ideal for review, something which should be a regular part of linear courses.

For further questions to challenge your older students, see **Challenging Mathematics Questions**.

**Posters and Displays**

Looking at my blog statistics, I see the **poster collection** is very popular, it’s that time of year I think! I realised there were some missing gems and have added Ed Southall’s wonderful **Mr Men collection**** **(Note the **two posts with poster packs** and his delightful **colouring book**!

Also added is **Clarissa Grandi’s display suggestions** on her wonderful **Artful Maths**. Linking these two together, I do like the “Today I’m feeling…” collection!

Whilst there is much debate about classroom displays, see **Mark Esner’s thoughtful TES article on the subject**, we still may have corridors we would like to add some displays too or events where posters can be helpful. Many of the resources in the poster collection such as the **Nrich collection** or Joey Kelly and Xi Yu’s **Play With Your Math** display very well on the whiteboard.

**Puzzles
**

Earlier in the holiday I noted some puzzles in the post

**Puzzle Time**; to add to those puzzles, some further puzzles for consideration from two favourite websites,

**Transum Mathematics**and

**Mathisfun**. Many of these would work as lesson resources.

For those still on holiday (the numbers are diminishing I know!) remember the **#SummerMathsPuzzles** from the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences. Each weekday throughout August the Institute publishes a maths-based puzzle. Whilst the puzzles do not require sophisticated maths to solve, they are not be easy. A new puzzle becomes live each day in August and answers will be provided at the end of the month.

**Mirror Writing **

Visiting the Leonardo Da Vinci A Life in Drawing exhibition one sees many examples of his mirror writing. Curious to learn a little more, I came across **information and additionally a lesson plan from the Museum of Science, Boston**. Something a little different when teaching reflections perhaps?

**UK Examination Results**

I am keeping my **Results 2019 page** updated. The page includes links to all the results statistics and grade boundaries as well as links to ofqual’s apps and other news items.
