Bare Faced Maths

Videos and tools for confidence through understanding.
Self-marking exercises for enjoyment through practice.

Learn confidently:

Use our videos and tools to understand a Maths topic.

Most are free, the rest can be made very cheaply, and ALL are designed by very experienced Maths teachers. Different options suit different people's brain, age or experience. Watch the video first, to decide which will suit you best RIGHT NOW. You may find a different tool suits you better next time!

As your understanding and confidence grow, you should:

  • USE the tools to WORK OUT the answer to each question
  • Start PREDICTING the answer then using the tools to CHECK it
  • Rapidly find you KNOW almost all of the answers and just use or imagine the tools when needed

Most people find that by the end of one of these paperless exercises, they are already working towards that last stage!

Enjoy Practising:

Once you understand the topic, you can start to enjoy practising it! Work through our self-marking exercises in Excel. Note: they also work in LibreOffice and MS Excel Online or apps!

Save your exercises, to review your progress! If you are a techie type, you could even get fancy and accumulate them all into a growing pdf book!

We are building a programme of single-task exercises and multi-task exercises so that you become confident at picking the right Maths tools to master any problem!
