As an ex-maths teacher, I was interested to read that Carol Vorderman, the former co-host of Channel 4 gameshow Countdown, is to head a maths task force...

She has been asked by David Cameron to assess teaching methods in England, how to tackle the "fear" of maths and if tests have got easier. A package of proposals aimed at improving numeracy is to be unveiled later.

Do we need yet another review of maths teaching in this country. We have some incredible work going on across Leeds. Don't we simply need more great maths teachers to inspire our young people and show them that maths is fantastic and actually dead easy!
