Stuck for Schools (http://www.stuckforschools.com) is a new and unique GCSE Maths online resource that combines flexible and engaging teaching, assessment and performance tracking for the digital generation. Stuck for Schools Maths Hub combines high quality video lessons with GCSE & IGCSE style practice questions that are set, answered, marked and reported online.
Teresa Watts, Managing Director of Stuckforschools said “We have developed Maths Hub in response to requests from teachers following the launch of Stuckonhomework - our GCSE maths revision website. As a result, we’ve created a unique and engaging resource that offers a complete package of high quality teaching and online question practice with student performance tracking.”
Stuck for Schools has been designed for both teenagers and adults, and is tablet and smart-phone friendly. The video lessons are also available as a separate package to upload onto a school’s VLE (Virtual Learning Environment).
Stuck for Schools recently exhibited at BETT, the UK's largest Education Technology Show at Olympia between the 11th and 14th January. Following the successful exhibition and positive feedback, Stuck for Schools are now offering all schools and colleges who are interested in testing the new GCSE Maths resource Maths Hub a 30 day free trial.
Available to all schools and colleges, the trial allows full, unlimited access to Stuck for Schools, giving them plenty of time to try it out with their Maths Department or test it with their students.
Stuck for Schools includes over 200 high quality video lessons taught by an experienced Head of Maths. Each lesson is between 2 and 11 minutes long and they cover the entire GCSE and IGCSE Maths curriculum at Foundation and Higher level. This highly flexible teaching resource can be used in class or at home on all computers and mobile media.
The video lessons are supported by over 1500 online questions including functional skills, created by a current Maths teacher who is also an examiner. They are set, answered, marked and tracked online with each question supported by helpful hints and the relevant video lesson.
Student performance tracking is provided by way of a unique grid that presents student results by assignment and group in one view. These are colour-coded to highlight passes and non-passes and collated to provide ongoing average student scores across all assignments. Stuck for Schools also provides a student reporting tool that collates results by assignment, assessment, student and group, tracking their progress across the entire school year.
