Secondary Magazine Issue 62Rhombus tiles

Welcome to Issue 62 of the Secondary Magazine. 


From the editor
Working together to develop professionally is a complex, but interesting, human activity.
It's in the News!
It’s in the News! uses the context of the recent oil spill in the United States to pose questions for students to work on, and provides the opportunity for teachers and students to explore a number of objectives.
The Interview - Dylan Wiliam
Dylan is the Deputy Director of the Institute of Education at the University of London. He is amazed that addition is not necessarily commutative, and he once managed to design an “angle-poise” lamp-stand that required only a single spring.
Focus on...Martin Gardner
The great inspirational Martin Gardner has died.
An idea for the classroom - making parallel rulers
Challenge students to design parallel rulers, and then use them to devise routes using bearings, and explore angles and loci.
Maths comes alive with 'Maths in a Box'
A new resource helps motivate students to carry on studying mathematics.
5 things to do this fortnight
Help your students find out how Alan Turing contributed to the dawning of the computer age, and we remind you of four imminent mathematics conferences that could inspire you.
Diary of a subject leader
Issues in the life of an anonymous subject leader
Our subject leader plans a STEM centre course, mentors students, and acts as a flight sergeant in the 1943 Dambusters raid on the dams of the Ruhr Valley. 
Contributors to this issue include: Hazel Kendrick, Sue Madgwick, Mary Pardoe, Peter Ransom and Dylan Wiliam.
