Welcome to Issue 91 of the Secondary Magazine (incorporating FE)

Having had a good break over the summer holidays, often despite the weather, the start of the new school term can be equally refreshing and invigorating: new classes, new staff, new ideas. This issue of our Secondary and FE Magazine can support your crisp start with some items for reflection, some interesting resources, and some things for your 'to do' list. Have a good term.


From the editor - Examination results
How were your external examination results this year? Did your pupils get the credit they deserve? And what do you do now to use the information gained to benefit pupils in your school? Here are some ideas.
A resource for the classroom - Census 2011
What do you know about 56 075 900? This is the estimated population of England and Wales in the recent release from the Office for National Statistics. Investigate the online Census tools and consider how they could be used in your classroom. 
Focus on...questioning in mathematics
This issue contains the third in a series of Focus on... articles looking at an aspect of pedagogy in mathematics. Higher order questioning has the potential to improve learning and understanding in mathematics – perhaps this could be a focus for the term?
5 things to do
If you always suspected that there was a connection between music and mathematics, there is an explanation of how a Bach canon works, but there are also some other directly mathematical suggestions to start the new school year.
Tales from the classroom
How do you start a new school year with your new mathematics classes? In this Tale we explore a possible start to the year which encourages pupils to be curious, problem solvers.
