Welcome to Issue 86 of the Secondary Magazine.
As the autumn term is well under way and the summer holidays are just pleasant, distant memories, this edition of the Secondary Magazine includes some articles to focus on work in the classroom. 


From the editor - A world-class mathematics education for all our young people
This article considers how the recent ‘Vorderman’ report provides a stimulus for professional debate in school. Have you read it yet?
It's in the News!
This September, Channel 4 and E4 finally stopped repeats of Friends after showing the comedy since its first broadcast in 1994. This resource uses the worldwide pervasiveness of the show as a context to explore estimation and problem solving, with a focus on identifying any assumptions that are necessary. 
The Interview - Dave Pratt 
Dave is Professor of Mathematics Education at the Institute of Education, University of London. In this interview he talks about his work, past and present, and concludes that he would have been better off financially as an actuary.
A resource for the classroom - Football Crazy
This issue’s resource is a logic puzzle used as a context for logical thought in Year 7 pupils.
5 things to do
Some topical resources for the classroom and some stimulating professional development events are featured here.
Tales from the classroom
What sort of lessons do you do when you are being observed? Do you take some risks in the classroom and show the high quality learning that can happen as a result? In this issue’s Tale there is a description of a lesson that did just that.
