    How many streets or place names near you use a mathematical term? Freedom Square, Polygon Road…this website offers a collection of 46 starting points for rich mathematical activity in the classroom. The site lists each of these activities via an intriguing title (e.g. Beach, Polygon Road, Tissues, Coffee cards). It then links the title to three further pages: the ‘beginning’ page, which is an image illustrating the concept behind the title, a ‘prompt’, which offers suggestions for students to start asking mathematical questions, and a ‘teacher’s notes’ page which helps teachers to identify possible problem-solving contexts. The brains behind this practical site is Dr Colin Foster, Assistant Professor at the Centre for Research in Mathematics Education at the University of Nottingham, and with this website he shares his enthusiasm for the art of effective questioning.

    This entertaining podcast is presented by physicist Professor Brian Cox and comedian Robin Ince, who synthesise their talents to produce an informative and lively mixture of science and humour. Each episode features different guests - usually a combination of two scientists and a comedian - and the show’s structure often takes the form of a dialogue between scientist (usually an expert in his or her particular field) and comedian, with the comedian asking deliberately naive questions in order to elicit an enlightening response from the scientist.
