Let’s talk about maths 
A group set up to challenge negative attitudes towards maths wants to hear the views of parents’ and young people. The Making Maths Count expert group, established by  Education Secretary Angela Constance, has launched a short online questionnaire to find out how people feel about maths and how they use their maths skills. The group, which brings together expertise from industry, academia and science, has been tasked with identifying which factors can create negative attitudes towards maths, before making its recommendations on how to improve the nation’s enthusiasm for and participation in the subject. Teachers, parents, carers and young people are all encouraged to contribute their thoughts as part of the group’s call for evidence.
Further information and the online questionnaire is at www.gov.scot/makingmathscount

The school newspaper site surpassed 10,000 hits on Saturday. Since our launch at the end of September the newspaper has published 112 articles on every topic under the sun, and we have sold 450 paper copies in two editions. This is all down to the remarkable talents of our sizeable group of S1 – S6 journalists.
