The final edition of our Secondary Magazine for the school year has been published.
Our partners, Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI), have recently collaborated with The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) to create a new collection of resources for maths teachers, and students. In this issue, Stephen Lee, Research and Evaluation Manager at MEI, gives a brief rundown of the new series of new apps, videos, and short contextualised KS4 problems, together with a few tasters.
This month sees the first cohort of Secondary Mastery Specialists attending their third and final residential NCETM/Maths Hubs training. We've got a snapshot of what some of the teachers have been trying in their own classrooms - and you can watch them in a new collection of video interviews.
Finally, in a bonus article, particularly of interest to our FE readership, we have a feature on Citizen Maths.
And some other things to draw to your attention:
- Currently thinking about the new A level? You may like to take a look at two blogs: alevelmathsthoughts documents one department’s journey as they navigate the issues in preparing for the new A-levels, while this entry from sxpmaths compares what the different exam boards are offering schools.
- In your NQT or training year and interested in getting your A-level knowledge and pedagogy polished up? ATM’s FREE three-day courses in the summer holidays are now full but they are inviting expressions of interest for October
- Harry Baker, mathematician and poet, writes hilarious maths poetry. Here’s one of our favourites, A love poem for lonely prime numbers.
Each magazine can be downloaded as a PDF document, and you can catch up on any previous issues you may have missed in the Secondary Magazine Archive. We have an RSS feed for each of our online magazines so you never need miss another issue.
