Math is extremely useful, but is it real, or is it simply a figment of the human imagination? This fast, fun, smart video is an episode of PBS's Idea Channel. It's also part of the 10 Unanswered Science Questions series. There's lots of food for thought here, entertainingly introduced by host Mike Rugnetta, and this could easily be used in a classroom to spark discussion about math, science, or the philosophy of those fields.

Good maths questions help practitioners know more about their learners’ learning and help them to address misconceptions.
An excellent resource to help practitioners do just that is Craig Barton’s and Simon Woodhead’s Diagnostic Questions site.
The site already has in excess of 1300 multiple choice questions with carefully designed responses to address common misconceptions.
Questions are clearly categorized, and there are numerous sub-categories under the main headings of...
- Number,
- Algebra,
- Shape,
- Space and Measure,
- Data and Statistics and
- Post 16 – Pure.
Registering allows practitioners to create their own quizzes and save them for later use.
