Welcome to the 30th issue of the Primary Magazine. This issue is a special edition, we are having a break from many of the regular items. Instead, we are bringing you an opportunity to consider maths across the curriculum by looking at some of the different environmental regions of the world. Our aim is to give you various facts and provide rigorous mathematical links to mountains, rainforests, cities, the polar regions and deserts that you can include in your topic work should you wish. We recommend that you read the Environments around the world article as an introduction to the rest of the features.
It’s in the News!
We do however have It’s in the News! Following the exciting story of the rescue, after 69 days, of the 33 Chilean miners from the gold and copper mine in the Atacama Desert, we are bringing you some slides to discuss and plenty of mathematics to go with them.

Back to our special edition!
We hope that you enjoy this issue and find it helpful. We would be grateful if you could give us feedback on what you thought.
