|The De Morgan Journal aims "to encourage academic mathematicians to reflect on current issues in mathematics education at all levels, from primary school to graduate studies; to encourage them to explore links between higher mathematics and elementary mathematics; and to examine significant policy implications which may affect the wider mathematical, educational, or scientific community." Freely downloadable articles, which date back to 2011, have included "Perceptions, operations and proof in undergraduate mathematics"; "Induction and Recursion"; "Multiple choice exams in undergraduate mathematics"; "Utter elitism: French mathematics and the system of classes prépas"; "Hungary: Search for mathematical talent"; "Nurturing able young mathematicians"; and "Acceleration or enrichment." Blog posts, which also date back to 2011, have included "The role of supervisors in PhD studies in pure mathematics"; "Finland's School Success"; "Fazekas, a specialist mathematics school in Budapest"; "Wolfram Alpha, a year later"; "Circle in Box: quality books for mathematical circles"; "Word problems and the Khan Academy"; "'Gold' open access: implications for mathematics education research"; "In Praise of Pick's Theorem"; and "Aaron Sloman: Is education research a form of alchemy?" and "Blame the teacher?" The London Mathematical Society also posts policy documents here, such as "Position Statement on Use of ICT in teaching of mathematics at HE institutions," "Vision for Science and Mathematics Education 5-19," and "Bridging the Mathematics Gap."|
