A-Level Maths Resources for Teachers and Students

January 2011

Welcome back to the MathsBank newsletter for another new term. Here's a quick message to bring you up to date with the latest news from the site.

Discounts for referrals

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.

New Functionality for Question Pages

Following the recent change of design on the site, some users pointed out that some of the features they knew and used regularly were no longer as easy to find. We've added a new Actions menu to the question pages to help with commonly used functions. From this menu you can enlarge or reduce the question text, activate the timer and step through the solution to the question.

See it in action, for example, here.

You will need to be logged in to do either of the last two.

Please continue to let us know if you spot anything missing or broken on the site, or if you have any general comments. Your feedback is most appreciated.

MathsBank Blog

Meanwhile, what's been happening on the MathsBank Blog? Well there are a couple of new articles worth mentioning.

  We celebrate the life of Erwin Schrödinger, who died 50 years ago this month. He was one of the great mathematical minds of the 20th century and some of his ideas are now beginning to seem as important as anything else from the last 100 years.

  Secondly, we've got an article on a brief history of randomness, with a link to the BBC Radio 4 programme In Our Time, which aired last week on the same subject. Well worth a read (and a listen).

That's all for now. Wishing you all the best for the new term.
