Secondary Magazine Issue 128'Brújula - compass' by Verónica Villa Agudelo (adapted), some rights reserved

Welcome to Issue 128 of the Secondary and FE Magazine

Since no doubt you’re surrounded by a frenzy of tinsel and Slade and mince pie fragments, we’ve tried to keep this month’s magazine as soothing as a scented candle twinkling in the frosty calm of a silent night – so no flashing gifs or unexpected Rudolph-related pop-ups, just some ideas about tables (multiplication and binomial probability, not place settings for 12 including those relatives you don’t like but feel you have to invite), solving problems (mathematical ones, not long-festering family tensions that always emerge after an eggnog or three), and visual representations of LCMs (that, being cuboidal, may inspire your present-wrapping). Festive cheer, and all that – see you next year.


Heads Up
Here you will find a checklist of some of the recent, or still current, mathematical events featured in the news, by the media or on the internet: if you want a “heads up” on what to read, watch or do in the next couple of weeks or so, it’s here. If you ever think that our heads haven’t been up high enough and we seem to have missed something that’s coming soon, do let us know: email info@ncetm.org.uk, or via Twitter, @NCETMsecondary.

Building Bridges
How to make time for times tables.

Sixth Sense
Last month we reached Binomial Base Camp, so now we’re ready for the climb to the summit that is hypothesis testing.

From the Library
Want to draw on maths research in your teaching but don’t have time to hunker down in the library? Don’t worry, we’ve hunkered for you: for this issue, the librarian has pulled together research about problem-solving.

It Stands to Reason
Last month we were drawing HCFs, so this month we’re visualising LCMs.

Eyes Down
A picture to give you an idea: it's all in the detail.
