Secondary Magazine Issue 101'Back to School' by Timothy Boyd, some rights reserved

Welcome to Issue 101 of the Secondary Magazine (incorporating FE)

The Back to school signs were displayed in the supermarkets from the beginning of August! As the beginning of term approaches this may be the time to brush off the sand and focus on issues professional and mathematical as you reset your thinking for the year ahead. Have a good year.


From the editor - why do we teach mathematics?
As the new school year starts, it might be appropriate to consider the answer to this question. Would all of your department give a similar answer? Why not ask them?
A resource for the classroom - Bongard problems
These intriguing problems may be perfect to get your new classes thinking mathematically at the start of term. At the last count there were over 280 problems so take the time to have a look now…
Focus on...Collaborative Teacher Projects
Here is an opportunity to read about some of the professional development activities undertaken by mathematics teachers in the past year. Their findings as they worked collaboratively on fractions and algebra are featured. You could think about tackling a collaborative project yourself this year...
5 things to do
A Geoboard tool, ROGO puzzles, sand patterns, applying for a mathematical conference, and some changes to the NRICH website are all featured in this issue.
Tales from the classroom
How do you work with NQTs in your school? How do pupils perceive the mathematics team? Our Tale from the classroom is more of an observation from the office in this issue but considers the positions and dispositions that contribute to successful learning in mathematics.
