Welcome to Issue 75 of the Secondary Magazine. 


From the editor
Will this short Christmas issue provoke discussion about students’ acquaintance – or lack of acquaintance – with appealing mathematical proofs?
The Interview - Aaron Sloman
Until 2005 Aaron was Professor of Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science in the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham. He believes that too many computer experts are products of a disastrous educational mistake, and have no idea what has been lost.
'Christmas lecturer' discusses mathematics teaching
Four mathematics teachers talk with Professor Sir Christopher Zeeman about teaching and learning mathematics.
Christmas Puzzles by Dudeney
Seasonal puzzles from Amusements in Mathematics by Henry Ernest Dudeney, published in 1917, can be starting points for mathematical exploration.
Subject Leadership Diary
Our diarist reflects on a White Paper, and dusts off ‘Christmaths’ activities.
Contributors to this issue include: Mary Pardoe, Peter Ransom and Aaron Sloman.
