Local school websites

 

Rationale: Increasingly, mathematics teachers use a school website to support their teaching, providing they have sufficient expertise with the web in order to do this efficiently. Much of this activity is often local to a school (through an intranet) not visible to outsiders, of course. It is helpful to see some of the ways in which school websites have been used for various purposes connected with teaching, necessarily restricted to ÔpublicÕ versions of websites. A key role of school websites may be to communicate the schoolÕs work to a wider community audience. Looking at other school websites may be helpful to teachers responsible fore their own school web site.

 

Here are some examples:

 

 

Woodlands Junior School

 

Although not concerned only with mathematics, this primary school website in Kent, UK, is an excellent example of a school website, with very many nice features.

 

 

UK schools from TSM

 

The (wonderful) TSM site in the UK at Oundle School has links to very many useful things, including this list of UK school mathematics sites that contain good resources.

 

 

Philips Academy, Exeter

 

Website of a famous and independent New Hampshire school. The website makes clear the Mathematics DepartmentÕs philosophy and styles of teaching. Visitors may be interested in the Harkness Table concept and many will be familiar with Rick ParrisÕs excellent Peanuts software, accessible from the site.

 

 

BISP, IB resources

 

An extensive and impressive collection of resources from the British International School in Phuket, Thailand, directed towards the IB (International Baccalaureate). The site includes videos, exploration ideas, interesting blogs and other helpful resources for teachers and students.
