Careers with maths

Plus Magazine have launched a brand new Careers section, bringing you all you need to know about the wide range of careers that use mathematics - from avalanche research and planning the Olympics to designing computer games or saving lives in developing countries.

The section gives you easy access to career profiles and in-depth career interviews, as well as advice from employers and useful information on how to enter a career with maths.

Find it on the Plus website


More money for extra-curricular STEM activities!

STEM Directories will be launching an exciting new grants scheme for schools. Teachers will be able to apply for up to £500 to help cover the cost of booking an activity listed on the website.

Visit the STEM Directories website to find out more.


LMS Popular Lectures

The London Mathematical Society Popular Lectures present exciting topics in mathematics (and its applications) to a wide audience. Each year, the LMS Popular Lectures feature two lecturers, who have been chosen for their mathematical distinction. Usually, there is one pure mathematician and one applied mathematician.

Details of this year's lectures can be found on the LMS Website

It can be useful to use different ways of looking at mathematical ideas. This month we look at how alternative representations and models help us to develop understanding of the underlying mathematical concepts.

Read this article by Jenni Back to explain the thinking behind this month's theme.
