M4 Magazine


M4 Magazine is a collection of mathematics teaching and learning ideas, resources and activities compiled by MEI for use by teachers and other colleagues in education. From September 2015 the magazine will be published every half term.

 

July/August M4 Magazine

In this half-term's issue

The final edition of the academic year includes summaries of general GCSE changes, GCSE legacy resits and new A level resits.

There’s an update and gallery of photos from the recent MEI Conference that took place at the University of Bath.

Teaching and Learning Resources

Our final teaching resource for this academic year is a replica of the delegate challenge from MEI’s Annual Conference. You should find some questions are suitable for KS3 students whilst others will challenge A level students. The order of difficulty is hard to ascertain since the mathematical content of one question might be judged as simpler than the content of another, but the amount of problem solving or ‘juggling with maths’ required makes it more challenging.  However, we have attempted to present them in approximate order of difficulty, for you and your students to enjoy.

Hints, ideas and solutions, as well as ‘just answers’ are given in the teacher notes included at the end of the PowerPoint so that you can download the file and remove slides as required before sharing it with your students. Enjoy!
