Guidelines for Authors
Mathematics in School is aimed mainly at teachers of school and college pupils of 10 to 18 years of age and for those working with students who are preparing to enter the teaching profession.
We attempt to attain a balance of articles reﬂecting this age and ability range and look for pragmatic articles; ready-to-use materials; discursive, possibly philosophical articles; speculative, reﬂective, and sometimes retrospective pieces. Newsworthy items have a place, but the average two-month lead time sometimes precludes this. However, book and equipment reviews have a very important role to play. There is also the opportunity to stimulate - and even amuse - otherwise hard-pressed and very busy teachers. If you can submit an original article (i.e. usually, one that has not been published elsewhere) that ﬁts this brief, then the Editors will be very happy to consider it for publication. Few articles used are over 4 pages long when typeset. Half-page 'ﬁllers' are always welcome. They can be odd hints and tips, items of news, letters, cartoons or photographs with oneČline captions. Please note that this is not a refereed journal, but a second opinion is usually sought. An article may be rejected, but a suggestion may be made as to where else it could be submitted. An Editor may suggest changes, but that in itself cannot guarantee eventual publication. Naturally an Editor may also cut or otherwise modify an article themselves, but the Author alway has the opportunity to see the result at the proof-reading stage. Prompt return of the corrected proof is essential.
Always include at the top of the article:
Title - If you have alternative titles in mind, include them, in particular, an amusing or clever title usually beneﬁts from a more descriptive subtitle as well.
Author(s) names in full.
Spelling Mathematics in School uses British spelling, according to The Oxford English Dictionary.
Illustrations, Illustrations, or suggestions for illustrations, are always welcome as MiS needs to be visually, as well as professionally and academically, stimulating. Preferably, Illustrations should be supplied in digital form. Photographs that have been scanned or taken from a digital camera should be saved to a TIFF ﬁle: colour images should be saved in CMYK format; mono images should be saved as greyscale. The resolution of both colour and mono images should be roughly 300 dpi. Line drawing scans should be saved in bitmap format at roughly 1000 dpi. File size should not exceed 15 MB. If you are not able to supply digital ﬁles any hard copy artwork needs to be clear and of the best quality.
