5 things to do this fortnight

orange circles
How to ensure progress for all in maths is a series of three events being hosted by the SSAT. The first of these took place in November but there are two more, one in Birmingham on 10 December and the final event in London on 26 January. The day will comprise a mixture of showcases from teachers in leading schools and a chance to discuss progression in maths via round-table rondevals.

If you’re near the University of Surrey on 11 December then why not head along to the STEM event GMES – Using science from space to safeguard the future on Earth, a masterclass with Anu Ojha. Anu Ojha is Director of Education and Space Communication at the National Space Centre, Leicester, and GMES is Global Monitoring for Environment and Security. The National Space Centre and University of Surrey have developed a range of new activities and innovative teaching approaches that use GMES topics as contexts for post-16 science and mathematics curriculum areas. Current GMES scientists have worked with Advanced Skills Teachers and other outstanding educators to produce a series of intensive, all-day teacher masterclasses and extra resources to help bring GMES into the classroom. Although these sessions are primarily aimed at science and mathematics teachers in further education and sixth form colleges, they are also open to post-16 science and mathematics teachers in other institutions. The event is free and a bursary is available to cover supply and other costs.

The Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME) recently launched a paper designed to provoke discussion on the future of post-16 mathematics. An online community has been created which aims to stimulate discussion on the paper and to collect your views on the proposals. ACME then intends to digest those views with the intention of producing a position statement in spring 2010 on the issue of Level 3 mathematics. Get involved and have your say.

What maths has surprised you recently? In this video David Acheson (who will be President of the Mathematical Association in 2010-11) talks about some of the mathematics that has surprised and inspired him. Remember, we looked at some tricks that you might use to surprise your students in Issue 41 of the Secondary Magazine.

Have a great last couple of weeks of term but remember to get your cards and presents in the post! The last posting dates are 18 December (second class) and 21 December (first class).
