London Mathematical Society

This Blog is maintained by the London Mathematical Society and  provides the academic mathematical community with a forum for discussion of issues in mathematics education and education policy. Its aim is

  • to encourage academic mathematicians to reflect on current issues in mathematics education at all levels—from primary school to graduate studies,
  • to encourage them to explore links between higher mathematics and elementary mathematics,
  • to examine significant policy implications which may affect the wider mathematical, educational, or scientific community.
The general editorial control of the Blog belongs to the Education Committee of the London Mathematical Society.
Posts and papers already published here illustrate, but are in no way exhaustive of, the intended range of themes. If you wish to submit a contribution or a full paper, click here for instructions.

  1. Hi there,

    I wanted to get in touch to let you know about a new maths website, a site that we’ve built to support a brilliant new book collection that explains how maths shapes the world around us. I can send you a PDF of the first book, ‘The Golden Ratio’ to preview, so please let me know whether this is of interest.

    Presented by Marcus du Sautoy, the 44-part series is aimed to introduce you to a range of mathematical topics in an approachable style, and is aimed at young and old alike – in fact the only requirement for enjoying these books is a curious mind and a thirst for understanding. The series approaches the subject of mathematics in a completely new, fresh and reader-friendly way, and covers a range of topics such as: the Golden Ratio, Prime Numbers, the Fourth Dimension, Fermat’s Enigma, the Secrets of Pi and Chaos Theory.
    We’ve also built a website that goes along with the series that will feature news, videos and puzzles from the world of maths, as well as stories about maths innovators and heroes. We’ll be updating this every week, so please check it out.

    We will be setting a weekly video maths challenge, the first of which is presented by Marcus du Sautoy, and will post the solution a week later. Visitors to the website will be able to enter a competition every week.

    The first challenge video can be found here:

    We were wondering if you would like to review the series for us, and we’d like to offer some copies of some books from the series to give away as a competition prize on your site or blog? We would love it if you wrote about the books and the site, as well as checking out the challenges and solutions on the website.

    It would be great to hear your thoughts on the site and series, so please drop me a note and let me know what you think.

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon,
    Kind regards,
