The Cambridge Branch of the MA

The Inaugural meeting of the MA/ATM Cambridge branch took place on Wednesday 26th March at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge. 50 delegates joined in, coming from schools and colleges in the immediate and wider area. There was excellent representation of each phase - primary, secondary and post 16, plus additional colleagues from the local authority, ITT and local maths ed. projects. Refreshments were available on arrival and this social half hour proved a valuable time to chat with old acquaintances and meet some new faces.

The formal part of the evening began with an update from Lynne McClure (primary), Rachael Horsman (secondary) and Peter Thomas (post-16) on the latest information on changes to the funding, curriculum, assessment, etc.

Fran Watson, the organiser of the NRICH roadshow, then led us in an hour of entertaining mathematical origami.

Good fun was had by all and several attendees have already reported back that they have since used these ideas in their classrooms.
