Equals Online
 
The last edition of Equals, written three months
into lockdown, began with a whole series of

For the first time, the Association’s flagship event will be delivered virtually, enabling you to join from anywhere. There will be an exciting programme of keynote speakers and interactive breakout sessions, focused on this year's theme of ‘Building Mathematicians for the Future’.
 
Book your place from as little as £10
 
 
 
Perhaps you would like to submit a proposal. We welcome sessions pertinent to mathematics education. Have you had a 'wow' moment in your own classroom, carried out some intriguing research or experienced something else that people would like to hear about?

Pack up a Penguin by Chris Pritchard
 
 
A brand new book by MA President Elect Chris Pritchard, Pack up a Penguin completes the journey through the geometry of common shapes and the calculation of area that began in A Square Peg in a Round Hole and continued in The Room in the Elephant.
Written to be accessible to an able and interested 18-year old, it aims to appeal to students and teachers of mathematics and to anyone with a fascination for the subject.
How should penguins huddle together to keep the Antarctic winter at bay? What has the Dutch artist, Theo van Doesburg, got to do with summing infinite series? Discover the easy way to find the area under a parabola and see how area can be used to demonstrate the standard results of algebra and trigonometry.
