Dr Jamie Frost has taught maths for 7 years; he was previously a PhD student at Oxford University (winning a Teaching Excellence Prize), prior to which he coded trading algorithms for an investment bank. His teaching resources have been downloaded 4 million times with 5 million page views a month. He was recently a Gold winner at the National Teaching Awards, and appeared on BBC2 in October on 'Britain's Classroom Heroes'. His passion is to to inspire and engage all maths learners across the ability spectrum and regardless of financial background, and both his resources and online platform continue to be completely free to all.

In these CPD events, Dr Frost will provide a practical workshop for teachers to get to grips with the DrFrostMaths online learning platform, as well as highlighting some of the key resources on the site (including in-class videos of teaching ideas). This will include a tutorial on getting started, as well as a look at functionality for setting homeworks/formal assessments, managing schemes of work, analysing/exporting assessment data and organising and creating worksheets. There will also be an exploration of case scenarios with regards to how the platform can be used for intervention, mentoring programmes, whole-year examinations, competitions and usage within lessons. The day will finish with a game of 'Dr Frost Live!', involving all attendees!

All attendees are strongly encouraged to bring a laptop. It will also help to register with www.drfrostmaths.com if possible in advance of the day. The workshop is designed to be suitable for those with differing (including no) experience of the DFM platform. There will also be opportunity for feedback on the platform, noting that many of the features on DFM are the result of requests at such workshops.

Can you host an event?

I am grateful to schools to offer to host such events. Costs are kept to a minimum in order to make the events either free or £10 for attendees, in order to encourage a large attendance as possible. The events typically take place just after lunch to avoid food expenses, although provision of tea/coffee would be a bonus. I do not aim to profit from these events and I only claim a small amount, if anything at all, to compensate for loss of income. These events are usually scheduled for mid-May onwards, when study leave would have started for many students, to minimise disruption. If you wish to discuss, including potential international visits, please contact jamie@drfrostmaths.com.

As a thank you to hosting schools, I offer to give a talk of up to an hour to a large student group at your school (e.g. a year group), with an exploration of 5 mathematical problems I have encountered in real-life situations (with audience participation!), a history of DrFrostMaths (including a bit about my life experiences), and how to make the most of the platform for independent study.

Event booking is usually done via the EventBrite platform. This means I can easily set up the booking system for you; the only input required from your finance team is to provide details that allows ticket payments to be transferred directly to your school. I choose hosts based on how strategic their location is, as well as the capacity offered. Attendance at the Dulwich, Manchester and Birmingham 2019 events for example were 145, 80 and 100 respectively.
