Welcome to Issue 93 of the Secondary Magazine (incorporating FE)

This issue provides some articles to think about our pedagogy in particular the principles underpinning outstanding lessons, discussion in the classroom and making links across the mathematics curriculum. Additionally there are some suggestions and resources for mathematical stimulation before the Christmas season is upon us.


From the editor - Outstanding mathematics lessons: what do they look like?
As teachers, it is our responsibility to ensure that our pupils get the very best mathematical experiences, so what does that outstanding lesson look like in practice?
A resource for the classroom - solar panels
After one of the wettest summers on record, this resource uses the data generated by the meter attached to an array of solar panels to bring the real world into the mathematics classroom. 
Focus on...discussion in the mathematics classroom
This issue contains the fifth in a series of Focus on... articles looking at an aspect of pedagogy in mathematics. Pupils usually say that they appreciate the opportunity to work with other pupils and to discuss their work so here are some suggestions to promote mathematical discussion in the classroom.
5 things to do
The journey of an MP3 player, the Olympic legacy, research into learning about probability, a clever crow solving problems, and some amazing origami are featured in this issue.
Tales from the classroom
How do you make the links between different areas of mathematics explicit to your pupils? In this tale, the idea of proportionality linking similarity, transformations and compound measures is explored with the use of a number square making those links more tangible for pupils.
