Welcome to the February MathsBank newsletter. Here's a quick message to bring you up to date with the latest news from the site.
Discounts for referrals
According to our Google Analytics, it has been the busiest month ever on both the main site and the MathsBank Blog. This is also reflected in the number of positive comments we've had from our users.
As we said last month, we will soon be opening up a referrals scheme. Users will be able to refer a friend or colleague, who will then get their own subscription at half price. If you are interested in the referral scheme, there will shortly be more information about it on the MathsBank website. Alternatively, you can email us and we will send you some information on how to get started.
Please continue to let us know if you have anything to say about MathsBank, good or bad, e.g. if you spot anything missing or broken, question topics you'd like to see included, etc. Your feedback is most appreciated.
So, what's been happening on the MathsBank Blog? Well:
We look back on the life of Carl Friedrich Gauss, who was producing his best mathematical works 200 years ago. He was one of the most versatile mathematicians of the last few centuries, making groundbreaking discoveries in statistics, astronomy and number theory.
Secondly, we continue to chart the painful progress of the education secretary Michael Gove in his various reforms of our education system here and here .
I think the word they'd use on the news is 'beleaguered'.
That's all for now, Luke.
