Secondary Magazine Issue 124'A Nice Place To Sit' by Richard Walker Photography (adapted), some rights reserved

Welcome to Issue 124 of the Secondary and FE Magazine

When you read this, you’re probably nearer the end of the holiday than the beginning, so let this new issue of the secondary magazine cheer you up. Grab a piña colada from the poolside bar (or a mug of hot soup and an extra scarf if you’re holidaying in the UK), pull up a deckchair and settle down with a slightly different set of articles this month: we’re Building Bridges in person at maths conferences, Sixth Sense is looking into the future for students going off to college following their GCSE results, and the library is closed for the vacation so there’s a dispatch From The Classroom instead. Altogether, more food for thought than a Cornetto!


Heads Up
The return of the radio programme that always has something to make us (and our students) think, and think mathematically; a helpful list of maths-related Twitter hashtags; a pointer to the NCETM’s newly published materials to help teachers assess pupils’ mastery of mathematics; and a new type of tessellating pentagon.

Building Bridges
How three maths teachers have used their out of school time, at conferences and online, to build CPD bridges between them and colleagues from across the country.

Sixth Sense
Thoughts on where we are, and where we’re going, with those post-16 pupils who haven’t yet got that Grade C at GCSE Mathematics.

From the Classroom
A fortnight out from the new term, some ideas on mathematical classroom displays, provided by our magazine readers.

Eyes Down
A troika of holiday snaps that prompt mathematical thinking.
