Welcome or just welcome back..

If you’ve recently joined our mailing list, have seen us at one of the many conferences and events we’ve attended, or have just met one of us – welcome to the Cambridge Mathematics community, which now extends right across the world. This month has so far already seen us host a very successful seminar on professional development in mathematics education as well as representation at ResearchED16 and a recent University of Cambridge Faculty of Education seminar with Prof David Clarke and Esther Chan. We are also delighted to welcome Vinay Kathotia to our Cambridge Mathematics Framework writing team.

Please follow us on Twitter @CambridgeMaths or continue to check our website for updates and information.

Best wishes


International Seminar

Our latest seminar, ‘Teaching as a learning profession’, was extremely well attended and included thoughtful and lively debate on professional development issues in maths education. Thank you to Peter Nystrom, Akihiko Takahashi, Geoff Wake and Mary McAteer for their presentations and all who attended.

Mathematical Salad

We have been publishing blogs thick and fast under the umbrella name 'Mathematical Salad', which are fresh, hand-picked, and bite-sized. Our latest offerings range from a short history of dice to how to build a Macro simulation in Excel; from some surprising properties of A4 paper to the thought-provoking idea of maths ‘as an enabler for a fairer and more moral society’. We welcome comments and discussion via the website.

New Cambridge Mathematics Book

We are delighted to announce the publication of the first book endorsed by Cambridge Mathematics - the superb 'Teaching Probability' by Jenny Gage and David Spiegelhalter, with a foreword by Lynne McClure.

Did we see you in Utrecht?

Our team was at the International Society for Design and Development in Education (ISDDE)  conference in Utrecht last week discussing educational design issues – very pertinent for our current work. We will also be attending the CIDREE (Consortium of Institutions for Development and Research in Education in Europe) annual STEM conference – also in Utrecht – in November. We are looking forward to seeing some of you there!
