I came across Amanda Austin’s site recently, her resources site, **Dr Austin Maths** has a very comprehensive collection. Aimed at teachers of GCSE and IGCSE, each of the many clearly indexed resources has several examples, all very clearly and attractively presented. . Editable Word documents are provided as well as pdf versions and all the answers are provided. With copying in mind the practice strips are very efficient with two to a page.

A site I so often recommend is **Transum Mathematics**, I noticed recently a useful addition to the **Ratio activity**, a new Level 6 has been added with problem solving questions. I noticed this in the recent Transum **newsletter**; useful practice at problems students can find challenging.

World Book Day has proved popular this year with many contributions to reading lists for Maths, a further update is this addition from MEI for younger readers. Mathematics reading lists are always useful, so I have added all the Mathematics reading lists from the World Book Day post to this page, **Mathematics Book Recommendations**.

One to watch out for this coming week….

In **Linking Curriculum Learning to Careers** I mentioned the very valuable **Where maths meets the world of work**. from AMSP. These videos showcase the maths in different careers; each video is paired with a resource for the classroom or for use online, so students can get a real taste of what the job may entail. A comprehensive set of resources is available including lesson plans. Keep an eye on this excellent growing collection.

Watch out for MEI’s Maths Mondays!

If that is a puzzle, a little **further reading**.

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.

Note the **resources and competition from MEI** for the International Day of Mathematics. In the run up to Easter you will find a chocolate theme on the **AMSP webpage**. Three activities are provided, each aimed at a different age group, Comprehensive documentation and teaching resources with teacher notes is provided for each activity.

I’ll end with some brilliant student art shared by Libo Valencia, a timely reminder how appropriate this kind of activity can be.
