- "Twitter Chats" (@DrBennison) ~ A pretty comprehensive guide to Twitter chats and how to get involved if you're a Twitter newbie.
- "Ban the Future" (@Sue_Cowley) ~ A short but amusing blog about the tide of technology, which gets bonus points for reminding me that computer mice used to have balls!

- "Changes to primary curriculum" (@MichaelT1979) ~ A guide for secondary teachers about the changes to the primary curriculum.

OCR GCSE support materials (via @mathsjem) ~ In response to my #mathsTLP question about baseline assessments for Year 10, Jo linked to OCR's GCSE resources, which include 44 Topic Check-In tests (at the bottom of the page) - while not quite what I was looking for as a baseline, these look invaluable for use throughout the course.

- Integration by a flowchart (@DrBennison) ~ A great flowchart showing all integration methods and model of a sensible thought process for solving integration problems.

- Play with your Math (via @Craigos87) ~ A superb site with lots of rich problems encouraging pupils to get enthusiastic and "play with" their maths; there's a new problem every two weeks.
