Mathematics Across the Curriculum Reviews


'The term "mathematics across the curriculum" can all too easily result in children engaging in relatively low-level mathematical tasks. This book, however, considers how mathematics can be used and applied in a variety of cross-curricular contexts so the integrity of mathematics is maintained. Sue and Liz offer teachers, from trainees to experienced practitioners, a wide range of practical, accessible ideas that will enable children to deepen their understanding and their experience of learning mathematics. I shall definitely put this book on any mathematics education reading list.'
Mike Ollerton, experienced teacher, teacher trainer and consultant, UK
