Aimed at the 16-20 age group, this new mathematics publication "provides teaching re sources for . . . the A-level curriculum." Because it is devoted solely to mathematics, Mathematics Review lacks the emphasis on physical science applications of its American counter part Quantum. But the topics are interesting, the articles are short and lively, the design is very attractive, and the editorial board is distinguished (Christopher Zeeman, lan Stewart, and colleagues from Warwick). Each issue includes articles (such as determining the date of Ramadan, and the contribution of music to mathematical discovery) plus columns on research news (unsigned but probably written by master expositor Stewart), exam tips, a cartoon series (by Cosgrove), Q & A, and more.
