Primary Magazine Issue 27Notting Hill Carnival - photograph by Cristiano Betta used under the Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 Generic licence

Welcome to the 27th issue of the Primary Magazine and welcome to the new school year! Our famous historian is Bernhard Riemann, we look at Aboriginal art and our CPD opportunity aims to develop subject knowledge in division. It’s in the News! features something cheerful for a change – the Notting Hill Carnival. 


Editor's extras
Thought the World Cup was over? Well nearly, we have some numbers that you might like to play around with. We also have case studies from of a couple of our regional projects, including an interesting one to do with setting, and an article by a Numbers Count trainer.
It's in the News!
In this issue we look at carnivals, in particular the Notting Hill Carnival which takes place over the August bank holiday. The slides provide opportunities for work with such mathematical concepts as measurement, money and data handling, as well as cross-curricular links with geography, D&T and music.
The Art of Mathematics
This issue explores Australian Aboriginal art from dot paintings to turtles and tortoises to didgeridoos. Have some fun getting to know the history of this type of art and trying the mathematical art ideas suggested!
Focus on...
Eighty-four years ago in August, Gertrude Ederle, American daughter of a German immigrant, decided it was the perfect day to swim across the English Channel: so we think it is a perfect month to focus on swimming!
A little bit of history
In this issue we look at a potted history of Bernhard Riemann, a German mathematician who studied under Gauss, and was asked by him to prepare a habilitationsschrift, the highest academic qualification a person can achieve, on the foundations of geometry.
Maths to share - CPD for your school
We continue our series on mathematics subject knowledge by exploring division. Before the session you might like to consider your own knowledge in the calculations section of Mathematics Content Knowledge in the Self-evaluation Tools
ICT in the classroom
We look at engaging children in collaborative problem solving using the interactive whiteboard (IWB). As you will see, the IWB can provide rich opportunities for reasoning, communicating and supporting each other's learning.
