Thank you for visiting Purposeful Maths!

We have created this website as a way of sharing our resources with the mathematics teaching community.

We both have a passion for improving the teaching of mathematics to young people through ensuring thorough understanding of subject content.

Between us we have over 15 years of classroom experience across very different schools.

Currently we are Head and Second in Department at a Secondary Academy in York.  The Department has undertaken huge improvements as a result of some of the ideas you will find on our site.

Our philosophy has always been to use the best educational research to improve the mathematical experience of all students regardless of background or prior attainment.

We hope you find the site useful and please feel free to subscribe to our updates and follow us on Twitter at @pbrucemaths and @mrgreen_maths.

All the best.

Phil and Martin
