5 things to do this week
Each week this section of the Secondary Magazine suggests some things you might like to be thinking about over the course of the coming week. Contact us to share your ideas and thoughts on items you think we should feature.
1. Further investigate the use of technology in your classroom
by visiting last week’s website of the week, Maths-IT. Consider how you could incorporate some of the ideas and resources into your lessons to enhance the learning and teaching.

2. Use the exemplification of the TDA Professional Standards
Have you or the members of your department looked at this yet? It is designed to support the career progression of teachers of mathematics, by providing non-statutory guidance. The examples given illustrate what the standard might look like typically for teachers of mathematics.  Click here to read more.  This is an ideal tool for those looking to move on to the next step in their career or those who wish to consolidate their current skills.

3. Find Moonshine... through Mathematics
What makes much of the world so beautiful? Is it simply subjective and in the eye of the beholder? Or, is it based on mind-boggling objective intricacy that can only be discovered via a mathematician’s journey through symmetry.
Marcus du Satoy, Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford and pretty good football player, will be appearing at the Swindon Festival of Literature, on May 15, discussing this and other themes explored in his new book, 'Finding Moonshine'.

4. Contribute to the Secondary magazine
You can e-mail info@ncetm.org.uk with feedback about publications, suggestions for articles, ideas for the 5 things to do,  a suggested website of the week or to put forward a proposal for consideration as a new feature.

5. Look ahead to the Bank Holiday.
at the start of May and book a few days away.
