5 things to do this fortnight

Why not consider some professional development for next year? Maybe aim to become a Chartered Mathematics Teacher? The Chartered Mathematics Teacher (CMathTeach) designation reflects the balance between teaching skills (pedagogy) and mathematics knowledge that is necessary for a professional teacher to educate and inspire today’s students.
The CMathTeach designation can also:
  • Identify you as being at the forefront of your profession
  • Encapsulate standards of professional excellence across mathematics teaching in the 21st century
  • Benchmark you at the same level as a Chartered Mathematician, Chartered Scientist, Chartered Engineer, Chartered Science Teacher etc.
Why not join a discussion about the designation?.

What are you going to be working on next year? The Departmental Workshops are a good place to go for something to think about – maybe you’d like to work on simultaneous equations or sequences.
Do you fancy finding out about Hollywood’s hippest mathematics? Or how a hamster can survive falling out of a plane without a parachute (and how they found out that this was possible?!)? If you’re in the Birmingham area then why not put the London Mathematical Society 2009 Popular Lectures in your diary? The free lectures take place on 15 September but you’ll need to apply for tickets by 10 September.
What’s going to happen to mathematics education in the next five years? This question was put to professors John Mason and Anne Watson at the ATM conference. View their thoughts, along with others, on the ATM website.
The London Mela on Sunday 16 August is one of the biggest celebrations of Asian culture and creativity in Europe. Mela is a Sanskrit word meaning 'to meet', used to describe all sorts of community celebrations and festivals in the Asian subcontinent. A long-standing tradition in South Asia, the Mela strengthens communities by bringing people together in a festival atmosphere where everyone can enjoy food, music and dance.
The London Mela has grown to be regarded, nationally and internationally, as the most significant event of its kind. It's a truly family-friendly event, and one for all of London to enjoy.
