Primary Magazine Issue 19soup can

Welcome to the 19th issue of the Primary Magazine. In this issue we look at the life and achievements of the famous historian Ada Lovelace, the artist Andy Warhol, and our Focus is on water. 


From the editor
In this issue we have the career profile of an advanced skills teacher (AST) from Richmond, we remind you of the various areas of the portal that have recently been developed and launched, and give you some dates for your diary.
Up2d8 maths
The next Up2d8 will be in Issue 20. In the meantime, we would love to know how you have used Up2d8, if it has worked well and how it can be improved. Please post your comments and suggestions in the Primary Forum.
The Art of Mathematics
This issue explores the art of Andy Warhol, an American artist best known for his exploration of Pop Art, an art movement that emerged in the 1950s, characterised by themes drawn from popular mass culture. 
Focus on...
Our Focus is on water. This article gives ideas for the numerous activities and opportunities to explore in this topic and also some of many of the interesting facts about the oceans that cover most of our world.
Starter of the month
To complement the focus on water, we give some suggestions for links with the measurement of liquid capacity.
A little bit of history
We look at Ada Lovelace who, over 150 years ago, suggested a plan for a machine that would calculate a special sequence of numbers. This plan is now thought of as the first computer program, and Ada as the first computer programmer and software designer.
Maths to share - CPD for your school
We continue our series on mathematics subject knowledge. This time we explore algebra! Before the meeting, print enough copies of the following Mathemapedia articles for teachers to discuss during the meeting: Expressing Generality, Algebra, and Acknowledging Ignorance
