Primary Maths and Equals Articles

The Primary NRICH Team regularly contributes to articles for teachers in subject association journals.  Here you will find a summary of articles which appear in two of the Mathematical Association journals, Primary Mathematics and Equals.

Primary Mathematics

Primary Mathematics is an A4 journal of the Mathematical Association written essentially by primary teachers for primary teachers. The content, which is often (though not always) themed, endeavours to blend ideas for classroom activities with articles about research, events and current news items relative to Primary Maths Education. There is also a reviews section for published titles and products. NRICH regularly publish articles in the magazine.

Equals

Equals Online is a publication produced by The Mathematical Association dedicated to opening up mathematics to low attainers. In practical terms it provides support through the exchange of ideas to help teachers reveal the excitement and applicability of mathematics to those who have in the past found the subject inaccessible and/or irrelevant.
