Primary Magazine Issue 22ballot box

Welcome to the 22nd issue of the Primary Magazine. Our famous historian is Euler, our artist is Kenneth Noland and our CPD opportunity aims to develop subject knowledge in the area of visualisation. 


Editor's extras
In this issue, we tell you about some Ofsted findings, give information about the latest round of MKNs and share a great little interactive programme on the internet for creating art work.
Up2d8 maths
We look at earthquakes, following those in Haiti and Chile at the beginning of the year. The spreads provide opportunities for work with such mathematical concepts as time, angles and probability.
The Art of Mathematics
This issue explores the art of Kenneth Noland, an American artist famous for his work on large-scale square canvases of concentric circles, in bold, flat colours and also chevrons, diamonds and stripes. Great for shape work! 
Focus on...
Our focus is the looming election. We thought this was an ideal opportunity to get your class and school involved in some relevant and appropriate mathematics and citizenship activities featuring the effective use of ICT.
A little bit of history
A potted history of Euler, who is thought to be the greatest mathematician of the 18th century, making important discoveries in calculus and graph theories and introducing much of the mathematical terminology and notations that we use today.
Maths to share - CPD for your school
We continue our series on mathematics subject knowledge by exploring visualisation. For this session you will need to download a copy of Thinking Through, and By, Visualising for each participant.
