Dr Jamie Frost has taught maths for 9 years; he was previously a PhD student at Oxford University working in AI (winning a Teaching Excellence Prize and the Microsoft Research Prize for his undergraduate dissertation), prior to which he coded trading algorithms for an investment bank. His teaching resources have been downloaded over 10.5 million times with in excess of 3 million page views on his site a day, and students have answered over 200 million questions online on his online platform, DrFrostMaths. He won a Gold Pearson Teaching Prize, appearing on BBC2's 'Britain's Classroom Heroes'. He reached the Top 10 for the Varkey Foundation Global Teacher Prize, and was awarded the Global Teacher Prize Covid Hero Award in special recognition of "someone who has gone above and beyond to keep young people learning during the COVID-19 pandemic". His passion is to inspire and engage all maths learners across the ability spectrum and regardless of financial background, and both his resources and online platform continue to be completely free to all.
The site is run by Dr Jamie Frost (resources, coding, feature development, training) and Mr Gaetan Dupont-Panon (Question Database Manager, support, Key Skills coding), both full-time teachers, with code contributions from others.
Update: DrFrostMaths is now a registered charity. We are currently in the process of setting up our operations and hope to start hiring staff soon.
