New lessons and homework tasks on Secondary MyMaths

We are delighted to announce the release of 11 new pairs of matching lesson and homework tasks on Secondary MyMaths!

Last term we published new “small steps” lesson/homework pairs on Circles. These resources were designed with feedback from teachers on the scope, difficulty, differentiation, and accessibility of our content.

We have recently expanded the Secondary “small steps” offering by publishing 11 new pairs covering volume of 3D shapes at Key Stage 3 and 4.
