MT229, July Issue, has now been published

Mathematics Teaching 229 - July 2012The Latest Journal, Mathematics Teaching 229 - July edition, has just been published and distributed to members.  

This is a special edition on Geometry;  the MT Editor said, "We decided, some time ago, that this edition, July 2012 would focus on Geometry.  In reality this meant it would be prepared after the conference so we would be able to use some of the material from conference sessions that related to Geometry".

Some of these articles are:

  • GPS: geometry, probability and statistics by Mike Field.  "It might be said that for most occupations there is now less of a need for mathematics than there was say fifty years ago.  But, the author argues, geometry, probability, and statistics constitute essential knowledge for everyone .....".
  • On learning Geometry for teaching by Dietmar Kuchemann and Melissa Rodd.  "The title is that of a course with the same name designed for teachers of mathematics.  The rational for a course specifically on geometry was that 'many of those currently teaching mathematics in school had little geometrical education....'.
  • Experiential learning by Christine Jones and John Mason. 
  • What is the risk of major surgery? by Geoff Faux
  • Geometry challenges by James Robinson

  • First time conference  by Anushka Fitzherbert
  • Spirals, spots and continued fractions by Robert Dixon
  • Miss is there a rule for 3D shapes? by Jocelyn D'Arcy
  • Doing and Construing re-visited by Alf Coles
  • Engaging with Islamic patterns by Ian Sugarman
  • 3-D proofs of 2-D Theorems by John Mason
  • Length, area and volume - or just geometry really by Derek Ball
  • Using Autograph to explore the geometry of Calculus by Douglas Butler
