Such Wonderful resources, seriously love it - your site makes me want to come and work at your school

I'm a big fan of this website…It's absolutely fantastic.Hundreds of really nicely thought out activities made by teachers who have used them in the classroom.

TeachMathematics - a handsomely crafted site, crammed with practical and authoritative ideas, straight from the mathematics classrooms of the dynamic trio from Toulouse I.S.! Don't hesitate to subscribe.

The resources you've gathered and created are fantastic. Clearly a lot of time and effort spent. Very useful, thanks.

I love the fact that the activities make students: think; interact with the Maths (ie dynamic geogebra files); discuss and debate ideas; see links to the real World. Most importantly though the activities promotes Maths as more than just skill practice out of a text book.

The lesson, activities, and ideas on Teach Mathematics are so wonderful because they require students to think deeply about the mathematics.What AMAZING work you all do! see more...(Link to testimonials page)"
