Hello! My name is Craig Barton and I am a secondary school maths teacher, the TES Maths Adviser, creator of mrbartonmaths.com, diagnosticquestions.com, the author of "How I wish I'd taught maths", and a bit of a maths geek. This is my podcast!

Each episode, I interview someone from the world of education who interests and inspires me. They may be a maths teacher, such as Dan Meyer, Kris Boulton and Greg Ashman, or they may be from the wider world of education, such as Dylan Wiliam, Tom Bennett or Robert and Elizabeth Bjork. We cover issues such as lesson planning, problem solving, motivation, cognitive conflict, behaviour, memory, cognitive load theory, and a lot more.

Be warned, these interviews are intended to be long and in depth, and are probably best digested across a few journeys to work or a few laps of the park with your dog. At lot of people are using them as CPD on the move! I hope you find my guests as interesting and inspiring as I do, and please help spread the word!

Jack McPhail ,

Brilliant resource.

As a non-specialist coming in to teach Maths in September, these podcasts and the conversations in them are invaluable. Not only do they give real insight into the teaching of Maths, they also make me reflect on my practice in general. Thanks Craig and guests for helping make me think further and deeper.

There is not a good reason not to listen

CPD on the move. What’s not to like? There are some amazing teaching books on the market at the moment and I’ve bought many following a Mr Barton podcast. The thing I find is that reading needs me to stop everything else. As a father of three and a teacher that’s a big ask, but a podcast whilst commuting, cleaning, cooking or exercise is far earlier to digest. I am a teacher with better ideas and understanding for listening to these programmes. Thanks Craig.

Mr Barton Podcasts

I listen in the car commuting to work. Really useful. Sometimes wish I had a pen to hand to capture some of the great ideas!
What is best is that it feels like I am in contact with other like minded teachers and I am exploring areas of teaching that really interest me. Excellent!
