About us

Updated 29-Jul-2010
Welcome to our Maths blog!
This blog is being written for teachers of AQA GCSE Maths.
It’s being written by the Maths publishing team at Longman (part of Pearson Education).  We started the blog in October 2009, and we post about 2 or 3 times per week.
We’re writing it for three reasons


  • FREE RESOURCES: We’ve been sharing heaps of free resources with our readers.  Sometimes we generate material themed around a topical event – for example, several posters during the World Cup – and sometimes samples from our books.  We also run competitions and free deals.  We’re offering a FREE Middle Sets Student Book to all new subscribers.


  • YOUR VIEWS: And, finally, we’re writing it because we want to hear teachers’ views.  We’re publishers, and we have resources to sell, and it’s in everyone’s interests that we make our books as relevant and as helpful and as engaging as they can possibly be.  Please let us know what you think we should do, and what you think of what we’ve done!

    Our dept have been targeting year 9s for a functional skills assessment this term – on a break between KS3 and GCSE. I have really appreciated the topical sources of data – World cup and Chelsea flower show material (garden planning) to name just two. I have also used my copy of AQA text book (Longman) to source some great material which the students have enjoyed.

    Thanks to all of you for your kind comments – we’ve worked hard on this year’s GCSE & Functional resources, and on this blog, so it’s wonderful to hear positive feedback.
    That said, we welcome all forms of feedback (including criticism), so let us know where there’s room for improvement…

    The functional maths books looks good. I’m sure it will provide much needed help to our pupils and teachers.
