I thought this poll might give us some quick, easy data to create discussion with.

What subjects are more 'popular'? Why?

What can we do to 'discover' the potential in any topics we do not like, or try to avoid!

Can technology help us do this?

Actually algebra is my favourite topic but I cannot pretend that it is the favourite topic of my pupils.

I like teaching probability - or gambling as I usually call it.

I put together four of the best Maths web sites on

http://mathweb.tk I find the problem with Maths web sites is not that there are too few but that there are too many.

From my point of view the best ones are interactive like the BBC bytesize.

I agree with Degsy - I like a flutter :)

David perhaps you would like to try this poll out in New Student Education Forum

Geometry was always my favourite. As I have been teaching some maths to a Year 7 class this year it has been really good to dabble a bit again! (Sad that 'proper' maths teachers seem to be fewer and fewer on the ground though.)

I have also, coincidentally, just been reading about the mathematicians in history who first tried to measure the size of the Earh and its distance from the Sun using triangulation. Best of all was the French astronomer/scientist who delighted in the name of Jean Picard. Any trekkies amongst us? :)
