Secondary Magazine Issue 143At the beach (adapted) by Sai Kiran Anagani, in the public domain

Hello, and welcome to the last secondary Magazine of the school year. In here you will find Secondary Mastery Specialists talking about changes they’ve made to their practice in their first year, and we hand over to our partners at MEI to tell you about their exciting new resources.

As a bonus extra, particularly of interest to our FE readership, we have a feature on Citizen Maths.

Don't forget that all previous issues are available in the Archive.

New, practical, interactive resources, from MEI and IET – FREE
part of MEI resourceApps, videos and short contextualised KS4 problems – in this article, MEI will give you a brief rundown of them all, with a few tasters. And of course, links to where you can find them.
Exploring mastery in secondary maths teaching
Jose Salinas July sees the first cohort of Secondary Mastery Specialists attending their third and final residential NCETM/Maths Hubs training. We caught them in between workshop sessions and asked them to describe changes in their practice.
Citizen Maths – Powerful Ideas in Action

And some other things to draw to your attention:

  • Currently thinking about the new A level?  You may like to take a look at two blogs: alevelmathsthoughts documents one department’s journey as they navigate the issues in preparing for the new A-levels, while this entry from sxpmaths compares what the different exam boards are offering schools.
  • In your NQT or training year and interested in getting your A-level knowledge and pedagogy polished up? The UCL's FREE three-day courses in the summer holidays are now full but they are inviting expressions of interest for October
  • Harry Baker, mathematician and poet, writes hilarious maths poetry. Here’s one of our favourites, A love poem for lonely prime numbers.
