For a little bit of Maths each day students can use one of these **March Calendars**.

There are calendars available for Foundation, Foundation+ and Higher. All the calendars can be downloaded from the above link. All are designed to be non-calculator calendars. You can check your answers with the solutions provided.

**National Careers Week** runs from 1st-6th March. **amsp** are offering two free online enrichment events for Year 10 students to coincide with **National Careers Week** and **British Science Week**, both events will look at some of the varied careers which use maths. Further details are here: **Which Career? – Meet people working in different roles*** *and **Which Career? – How maths is used in different rol****es**. As amsp point out …

Attending the events will help both teachers and students link maths curriculum learning to careers, thus fulfilling Gatsby Benchmark 4.

4. Linking curriculum learning to careers | All teachers should link curriculum learning with careers. For example, STEM subject teachers should highlight the relevance of STEM subjects for a wide range of future career paths. |

Check the **BBC Bitesize Careers page** to see what Bitesize is providing this week and note the information available here including **Where could your favourite subject take you?** Check out the **Jobs that use Maths**.

For more on linking curriculum learning to Careers see **this post**.

**World Book Day** is on 4th March.

March 14th is the **International Day of Mathematics**. The theme for 2021 is **Mathematics for a Better World**. Also celebrated in many countries as Pi Day because that date is written as 3/14 in some countries.

Looking at the suggestions to **decorate** an International Day of Mathematics event note this **Mathematical Origami** from the amazing **Mathigon** site.
