Welcome to Issue 104 of the Secondary Magazine (incorporating FE)

With the countdown to Christmas well advanced, and the summer holiday a distant memory, this issue tries to capture some of the reasons why we teach mathematics. Starting with some of the mathematics that hooks us in, touching on a possible link with the science curriculum, and considering work supporting learners who struggle to make sense of mathematics - these articles give a perspective to the work of the mathematics teacher. And don’t forget to read the jokes to complete the picture. Enjoy your teaching.
