About Craig Barton

​Craig Barton loves teaching, doing, speaking and thinking about mathematics. He taught maths in secondary schools for 15 years, and was TES Maths Adviser for 10 years. He is now the Head of Education at Eedi. Craig is the author of three best-selling books: “How I wish I’d taught maths”, “Reflect, Expect, Check, Explain” and “Tips for Teachers”, the host of the Mr Barton Maths podcast and the Tips for Teachers podcast, and the creator of far too many websites, including mrbartonmaths.com, diagnosticquestions.com, variationtheory.com, ssddproblems.com, dqaday.com and mathsvenns.com. In 2020 he was appointed as Visiting Fellow at the Mathematics Education Centre at the University of Loughborough. Craig has been lucky enough to teach maths and work with teachers and students all over the world. His two proudest achievements are convincing Kate to marry him (and stay married), and being the father to our wonderful boys, Isaac and Jacob.
