The Mathematical Gazette

The Mathematical GazetteThe Mathematical Gazette is one of the leading journals in its field, publishing important and influential articles  about the teaching and learning of mathematics.  

It also features fascinating expositions of attractive areas of mathematics, book reviews, and a teasing problem  corner.  

Its readership spans the globe and includes school teachers, college and university lecturers, students,  educationalists and others with an interest in mathematics.




Mathematical Association 150th Anniversary Article Collection

The free-to-view articles in this special anniversary collection have been chosen to illustrate a diversity of topics in pure and applied mathematics, ranging from the history of mathematics to pedagogy, from geometry to problem solving, and from sport to knitting. Several feature in the list of the most popular Gazette downloads from Cambridge Core. The authors include some of the most celebrated mathematicians of our time and four are past Presidents of the Association.

It is to be hoped that these will provide a taste of the breadth of material which has made The Mathematical Gazette a point of reference in good writing about mathematics for the last 127 years and a jewel in the crown of the 150 year old Mathematical Association.

What you can expect in each issue:

Articles – each of six pages or more in length, covering a wide range of topics.

Notes - these are shorter than articles and cover a wide range of topics.

Problem Corner – problems are set and readers are encouraged to solve them. Solutions to previous problems are  included alongside credit.
