These are the show notes for episode 7 of the Travels in a Mathematical World Podcast. 7 is prime, and the numbers on opposite sides of a regular six-sided die always add to 7. More about the number 7 from thesaurus.maths.org.

This week on the podcast we hear from Neil Goldwasser. Neil is a maths graduate who works as a dyslexia support and adult numeracy tutor in a FE college. He talks about his career and his work teaching maths in a vocational context. You can find out about mathematics teaching from the TDA, and more information from Teachernet. Good resources for maths teachers are the NCETM and nrich. Some more information on dyslexia support is available from the British Dyslexia Association.
