The Art of Mathematics
This issue explores the English artist David Hockney who was an important contributor to the Pop Art movement of the 1960s. He is considered to be one of the most influential British artists of the 20th Century. If you have an artist that you would like us to feature, please let us know.
Focus on...
We have the second in our short series of articles about mathematics trails outside the classroom as designed by students at Kingston University. This trail takes us around Wembley Stadium.
A little bit of history
This is the fifth in our series about inventions. In this issue we look at another important piece of classroom equipment – scissors! 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 of Maths to Share we look at some research carried out by Mathematics Specialist Teacher Kathryn Davies, focusing on lesson study, entitled 'Working collaboratively with colleagues to improve mathematical understanding, using the outdoors, for a group of underachieving boys in Year 2'. If you have any other areas of mathematics that you would like to see featured please let us know.
