The NCETM and the FMSP have set up a number of Further Maths Knowledge Networks (FMKNs)
in the East of England region. It is not too late to join one of these networks. However, even if
you are not a member of an FMKN, you are invited to attend a free training session on the use of
GeoGebra interactive mathematics software provided by the FMKN based at Longdean School,
Hemel Hempstead.

GeoGebra is free, interactive, graphics, algebra and spreadsheet software for teaching
mathematics at any level, but it is particularly useful for teaching A-Level Maths and Further
Maths.

Michael Borcherds, who will be leading the session, is a Lead Developer with the International
GeoGebra Institute and an experienced maths teacher, currently at Queen Mary’s Grammar
School in Walsall.

The session will take place at Longdean School, Rumballs Rd, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire
HP3 8JB on Friday 10 December at 2:00pm. Places are limited so please contact Mrs. Gabe
Durrant at G.Durrant@longdean.herts.sch.uk to guarantee that you have a free place!

Polite request: Please do not reserve a place if you are unsure about your availability to attend; we would like to
avoid turning teachers away in the event that all places are filled only to discover on the day that some teachers
who have previously booked do not turn up!
