"I genuinely believe I have never taught mathematics better, and my students have never learned more. I just wish I had known all of this twelve years ago..."

Barton also launched my Mr Barton Maths Podcast in 2015, allowing him to talk to people from the world of education who interest and inspire me, including DylanWiliam, Doug Lemov, Daisy Christodoulou and Dan Meyer.
