Secondary Magazine Issue 132extract from diagram in 'It Stands to Reason' feature

Welcome to Issue 132 of the Secondary and FE Magazine

Can it be nearly the end of April already, with the exam season almost upon us? Despite the importance of this term for all secondary teachers, we hope you’ll have time to delve into the inner reaches of our monthly magazine. Let us know what you think, by email to info@ncetm.org.uk or on Twitter @NCETMsecondary.


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, @NCETM.

Sixth Sense
We eavesdrop on a conversation (thanks to an article from the ATM archives) between a couple of mathematicians about cutting up a toad-in-the-hole to share between three people, but only by making cuts that divide any given piece in half.

From the Library
A look at the research linked to the aim of helping pupils make connections between different areas of mathematics when encountering algebra.

It Stands to Reason
How pictorial representations can help students develop deep understanding of multiplication.

Eyes Down
Thoughts prompted by a student’s apparent blind spot when it comes to rounding to significant figures.
