Like you, I know that setting cover work is such a hassle, that the conference or meeting that you’re invited to attend, or the recovery time needed from illness becomes much less appealing, and it’s easier to just plough on.

Well, if you’re in need of a quick cover lesson or two, these videos may well fit the bill – so just give the students some paper or a whiteboard, and they’ll have a themed problem solving lesson with minimal fuss. I’ve also provided the answers to these videos too – so you don’t need to worry about your Maths knowledge either.
