Welcome to Issue 106 of the Secondary Magazine

In this issue of the Secondary Magazine, New Year's Resolutions and the opportunities they provide for fresh starts are considered alongside the second of our series of articles in the Key Ideas in Teaching Mathematics series and the last of the thought-provoking articles focusing on the Numbers Count programme. Even if outside is wet and wintry, enjoy the mathematical comfort provided in this issue.
