Some of you will have already started and some are still waiting (with bated breath) to return, I hope all are looking forward to your return and that yours is full of success.
Some students have started to take advantage of using shared on-line notebooks in session. Both Microsoft OneNote and Microsoft Whiteboard have been successfully used by my students. These have the advantage of enabling both the tutor and the student to write, draw and insert onto the same document. The notes created are then available from then on in one place. Students can insert pages containing prep for marking and then both student and tutor can go through any issues looking at the same document. If any others wish to take advantage of these shared notebooks then please reply. Further details can be found at https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/microsoft-365/onenote/digital-note-taking-app/. Others, who don't use OneNote, may find Microsoft Whiteboard more useful.
Those who have access to "Study Information Centre" on my website may have already seen the page on recommended calculators. Currently the most useful calculator on offer is the Casio fx-991 EX CLASSWIZ. This calculator will cover most students needs for I/GCSE, A level and beyond. Do you know of a good calculator?
