5 things to do this fortnight

orange circles
Maths Inspiration is one of the largest maths enrichment programmes for teenagers in the UK – reaching over 10 000 students in 2008/09! It's a chance for Year 11s and sixth-formers to experience the UK's most inspiring mathematics speakers live, in big venues, presenting mathematics in the context of exciting, real-world situations.
On 19th November at Chatham Central Theatre, Simon Singh, Hugh Hunt and Rob Eastaway will be the star attractions!
The content is ideal for Year 12s and for more motivated Year 11s.
More details of this and other Maths Inspiration events can be found on their website.

On Saturday 14th November Professor Malcolm Swan will lead the Meridian branch of the ATM/MA meeting looking at developing mathematical concepts and processes through discussion. Malcolm will lead interactive sessions for all participants and also for primary and secondary colleagues separately, using group activities that encourage pupils to:
  • classify, define and compare
  • formulate and simplify, analyse and solve, interpret and evaluate, communicate and reflect.
More details can be found on the event flyer.

Maths meets comedy on Friday 13 November at St James’ High School in Exeter, where stand-up mathematician and finalist of NESTA Famelab 2009, Matt Parker is performing from 7pm. Contact the school for details and tickets.

How are you preparing for the 2010 changes to Key Stage 4? Many of the exam boards are touring events giving details of the changes. This round of the Edexcel events finishes on 4 November with an online session running in the afternoon. On the same day OCR start their round of meetings in Preston.
red circles
Friday 20th November is BBC’s Children in Need. Don’t worry, you’ve still got time to work out how you’re going to make a fool out of yourself in front of your students in the name of charity!
