Secondary Magazine Issue 67

Welcome to Issue 67 of the Secondary Magazine. 


From the editor
How are we preparing for the new school year?
It's in the News! Big Burger
This fortnight’s It’s in the News! explores the idea that television advertising exaggerates in order to convince us that the product is bigger and better than it is in reality. A recent advertisement for a chicken burger was banned by the Advertising Standards Agency because its size was “considerably less” than that implied. 
The Interview - Barbara Jaworski
Barbara is Professor in Mathematics Education at Loughborough University. Discover how she has sought alternative approaches to teaching mathematical topics, and how, in the process, she has inspired, and continues to inspire and support, teachers.
Focus on...learning with pegboards
Pegs and pegboards are useful, often overlooked, resources that can stimulate productive mathematical enquiry.
An idea for the classroom - polygon puzzles
We suggest some ways of exploring regular polygons in which the thinking of students is challenged and their minds may be surprised.
5 things to do this fortnight
You might start preparing for the next ATM Easter Conference, apply for a grant to assist you in your professional development, plan to attend some lectures, from a variety on offer, about mathematics and mathematics teaching, or watch the video of a lecture that has already happened, and that you might plan to use with your students.
