In Editor’s extras we have details of various events that are happening during the rest of this term. We provide a link to collections of all the different types of articles that have been published in the Primary Magazine over the last four years, plus an introduction to Dr Rachel Marks, whose research we are looking at in Maths to share.
The Art of Mathematics
This issue explores the art of Faith Ringgold, an African-American artist and author, best known for her large painted story quilts. She was born on 8 October 1930 in Harlem, New York City, the youngest of three children. If you have an artist that you would like us to feature, please let us know.
Focus on...
As we are now into December and fast approaching Christmas, we focus on the month of December with a few weird and wonderful facts and links to Christmas around the world and food.
A little bit of history
This is the second of our short series on famous explorers. In this issue we look at Sir Frances Drake, the Elizabethan sailor and navigator who was the first Englishman to circumnavigate the globe. If you have any history topics that you would like us to make mathematical links to, please let us know.
Maths to share - CPD for your school
In this issue we look at the research of Dr Rachel Marks, Well-meant intentions: ability-grouping in primary mathematics. You will need to print out copies of this research for colleagues to read prior to your meeting.
