If you haven’t seen the SMILE resources you certainly should have! SMILE (Secondary Mathematics Individualised Learning Experiment) resources were produced and used from the 1970s onwards but don’t think that because they are old that their time has passed. There are some wonderful activities and worksheets in the collection.
You can now download every one of the SMILE resources from the National STEM Centre website at this link. There are 2403 worksheets, times tables booklets, a ‘Makes Sense Series” of resources that feature even more worksheets and activities and much more.
When I look at how wonderful some of these resources are I think to myself that we are reinventing the wheel somewhat everytime we make our own worksheet.
I have written to the National STEM Centre website to ask if they would give us permission to make the SMILE resources freely available on the Great Maths Teaching Ideas website in the same way that the Mathematics Enhancement Programme did. For now you’ll have to visit the link above.
