May/June M4 Magazine

In this half-term's issue

This issue includes updates about the Ofqual blog and recent posts.

This half term’s issue is dedicated to Professor Malcolm Swan, who died in April 2017 at the age of 64. Professor Swan was described by the Mathematical Association as “one of the most respected and influential mathematics educationalists of recent times.”

Some of our staff members have written articles for this special issue, each describing a particular item connected with Malcolm (be it a resource, website, professional development session or research article) and explaining how that had an impact or influence on the writer’s own thinking or development as a practitioner, and how it has fed into their current work. We hope that this reflection helps to demonstrate Malcolm’s impact on vast numbers of members of the mathematics teaching profession.

His funeral takes place on Tuesday 23 May. There is a movement calling on maths teachers to use Malcolm Swan's materials in as many lessons on that day as possible, and to tweet pictures and examples using the hashtag #malcolmswanday. If you wish to follow this lead you may find the articles in our magazine and its accompanying classroom resource helpful.

Carol Knight’s classroom resource (at the end of the magazine) comprises half a dozen ‘starter’ activities that are ‘in the style of’ the Shell Centre resources, in addition to two activities from the Shell Centre Publications.
