Secondary Magazine Issue 89

Welcome to Issue 89 of the Secondary Magazine!
Summer is here? The question mark is needed because of the extremely variable weather we have been having recently, from drought warnings to floods! Whatever the weather, it is the summer term, external examinations are over and you just might have time to reflect and plan while dodging the raindrops. The two predominant themes in this issue are the recent Ofsted report Mathematics: made to measure and the forthcoming games – neither of which can be ignored. Happy reading!


From the editor - Made to Measure
The latest Ofsted mathematics report is now available. Have you read it yet? Which paragraphs caught your eye? What challenges does it pose for you?
A resource for the classroom
The games are nearly here. These resources use the idea of the overlapping hoops to stimulate work in the mathematics classroom. 
Focus on...differentiation
This issue marks the start of a series of Focus on... features considering pedagogical issues in mathematics; there are some thoughts and sign posts to stimulate your thinking about differentiation in the mathematics classroom.
5 things to do
No summer would be complete without sunflowers – those bright and cheerful yellow heads not only bring a smile to one's face but also contain vital data to enable scientists to test questions posed by Alan Turing and others. Other things to do include making a response to the draft proposals for the primary curriculum, and some more games-themed resources.
Tales from the classroom
Does your teaching improve procedural fluency, provoke curious and confident learners or develop conceptual understanding? Perhaps you have never categorised your lessons under these headings? This tale relates one such experience.
