Welcome to Issue 70 of the Secondary Magazine. 


From the editor
We need to focus on what produces an effect on standards – connected teaching for understanding.
It's in the News! Store wars
A recent study has found that retail rents on London’s New Bond Street are the highest in Europe, with a prime location costing £925 per square foot per year. This resource uses the context of a retail space to give students the opportunity to develop work on length and area, as well as develop problem solving skills. 
The Interview - Margaret Brown
Professor Margaret Brown has directed over 25 research projects in the teaching, learning and assessment of mathematics, at all levels from early years to undergraduate. She has been involved in national policy development in mathematics for over 20 years, and has been president or chair of several national organisations.
Focus on...change ringing
Bell ringing is a context in which students can explore connected mathematical ideas such as the concepts of order, change and system.
An idea for the classroom - 'the same' and 'different'
If you show two examples of something and ask ‘what is the same?’ or ‘what is different?’ about them, all students are able to respond.
Discussion about multiplication
How well do we understand why teaching multiplication through scaling may help students?
5 things to do this fortnight
You may like to be at the first weekend Gathering in the UK inspired by the biennial international Gathering for Gardner. What do you know about George Boole, a forgotten genius? There is a competition and another conference to consider, and we remind you of a new book by Marcus du Sautoy, who will be the subject of our interview in the next issue.
Subject Leadership Diary
Allocating students to appropriate teaching groups, target setting and ensuring that all marking of student’s work is in line with department policy, all demand the subject leader’s attention. And Isambard Kingdom Brunel stimulates ideas for STEM teaching.
Contributors to this issue include: Margaret Brown, Rebecca Hanson, Mary Pardoe, Richard Perring, and Peter Ransom.
