Secondary Magazine Issue 37ice lolly

Welcome to Issue 37 of the Secondary Magazine. Are you enjoying the summer? As we are preparing for the end of term it is time to reflect upon the achievements of the academic year and start to plan for September. Perhaps you will find some ‘things to do’ to help your planning, or perhaps you will be inspired by our interviewee. Happy reading.


From the editor
Isn’t it fantastic when the librarian comes to you with money to spend for the school library. Here are suggestions for two very different books which earn their places on the shelves.

Up2d8 maths
The fortnightly Up2d8 Maths resources explore a range of mathematical themes in a topical context. A huge jellyfish shape recently appeared in a field of crops in Oxfordshire – who did it and how did they do it? This Up2d8 resource uses the context of crop circles to explore geometric reasoning and construction on a grand scale.

An idea for the classroom - Plans and elevations
Do you get some satisfaction from solving difficult problems? This highly addictive computer-based resource invites you to construct a 3D solid based on three different views.
