March Mathematics

It seems appropriate to start this post with these brilliant March Calendars from Wayne Chadburn.

For a little bit of Maths each day students can use one of these March Calendars.
There are calendars available for Foundation, Foundation+ and Higher. All the calendars can be downloaded from the above link. All are designed to be non-calculator calendars. You can check your answers with the solutions provided.

National Careers Week runs from 1st-6th March. amsp are offering two free online enrichment events for Year 10 students to coincide with National Careers Week and British Science Week, both events will look at some of the varied careers which use maths. Further details are here: Which Career? – Meet people working in different roles and Which Career? – How maths is used in different roles. As amsp point out …

Attending the events will help both teachers and students link maths curriculum learning to careers, thus fulfilling Gatsby Benchmark 4.

4. Linking curriculum learning to careersAll teachers should link curriculum learning with careers. For example, STEM subject teachers should highlight the relevance of STEM subjects for a wide range of future career paths.

Check the BBC Bitesize Careers page to see what Bitesize is providing this week and note the information available here including Where could your favourite subject take you? Check out the Jobs that use Maths.

For more on linking curriculum learning to Careers see this post.

March 14th is the International Day of Mathematics. The theme for 2021 is Mathematics for a Better World. Also celebrated in many countries as Pi Day because that date is written as 3/14 in some countries.

Looking at the suggestions to decorate an International Day of Mathematics event note this Mathematical Origami from the amazing Mathigon site.
