In the previous blog post, I mentioned about the publication of **Mathematics Question – Number 18**. Now **Mathematics Question – Number 19** has been published. Download it here. It is the third question in, “*The skill of thinking*” series. As with **Mathematics Question – Number 17** and

**Number 18**, it is written for

*Grades 5 to*

*8*. It asks students to think about different ways that four friends can spend time at a ten-pin bowling alley, over a six month period.

Also in the previous blog post, I mentioned about upcoming webinars and a week-long mathematics course. The dates for these have now been published:

*Tuesday 12th October 2021* **16:00 GMT** *Free ICT Toolbox to Help in Your Classroom*

*Tuesday 19th October 2021* **16:00 GMT** *Teaching from a Single Computer with No Internet Access*

*Wednesday 20th October 2021* **16:00 GMT** *Helping Students Learn Subjects Through English as an Additional Language*

*Monday 25th to Friday 29th October 2021* **16:00 GMT** *Developing a Mathematics Professional – 5 Days Training*

As with all the training *nilsbird training* tries to provide, the fees for attending the above events are being kept low so that teachers from different economic backgrounds can attend.

The standard price for a webinar is **$7 **(£5.11). However, until **48 hours** before the training is due to take place, it is heavily discounted to the amazing price of **$2.50** (£1.82). The standard price for *Developing a mathematics professional* is **$35 **(£25.54). However, until **48 hours** before the training is due to take place, it is heavily discounted to the amazing price of **$10** (£7.30).

Finally, *nilsbird training’s* first live stream event of this Autumn will be at **16:00 GMT** on *Wednesday 6th October 2021* on it’s

*YouTube channel*. The topics will include

*CPD*(continuous professional development) and

*active learning*: https://youtu.be/je0DgWZZRP0

So, apologies for another information-sharing blog. My next post will be about the mathematics questions so, hopefully, there will be something of interest for you in that. During October I would like to continue to discuss the idea of thinking skills, mentioned in the previous blog post.

Bye for now,
