Secondary Magazine Issue 111'under the sunshade' by Claus Rebler (adapted), some rights reserved

Welcome to Issue 111 of the Secondary Magazine

The sun is out! During the warmest half term of the year, do take time to sit in the shade with a long cold drink and sip the delights of our latest issue of the Secondary Magazine. And by the way 111 x 111 = 12321 – which seems pleasing!

This article explores the emerging role of the mathematics 'teacher-educator' and the support available for people working in this area.

Focus on...research
The proceedings of the most recent day conference for the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics (BSRLM) include a paper about the calculation skills of Year 8 pupils. How successful would your Year 8 pupils be in performing these calculations?

As football fever engulfs the nation, invite this excitement into your classroom by using our simulation resource.

5 things to do

You might also like to look at a recent Google Doodle, information about Bowland small grants, and preferred A level entry requirements for STEM courses, and some problems involving Freedom and Constraints.

What motivates you to keep going, week in, week out to improve the mathematical education of your pupils? Our author considers the moments that help him to answer the question Why do you do it?
