    Nothing on earth could make Maths engaging to me, and this book certainly didn't succeed. It waffled on endlessly and was (considering Maths is supposedly all about figures) incredibly wordy. Whilst reading this I quit my SCITT course due to the already impending sense of doom and increasing stress. I am glad that I did - after researching online the experiences of others who have had a similar experience (most graduate teachers apparently quit within five years) I feel I have made a lucky escape Nothing on earth could make Maths engaging to me, and this book certainly didn't succeed.

I will be selling this on ebay, even so I am sure there must be clearer/easier books on the market which just demonstrate the bare bones required to teach, not chapters and chapters of unnecessary meanderings.

    This is a must-read for students and teachers teaching mathematics. It offers invaluable teaching points which can really change your view of teaching. It doesn't matter whether it's the 3rd or the 4th edition; this book will definitely extend your pedagogical knowledge. (Just beware of the outdated curriculum knowledge on the 3rd edition.)

    This is a fantastic resource for those of us who struggled with math as children and are interested in facilitating and encouraging our children's learning. I wish math was taught to me this way!

    I ordered this book for my PGCE and I'd say this is a very helpful book for primary teachers, or parents who wish to help their children with Maths, but who may not have the confidence to do so. The book is broken down into sections covering, Mathematical Understanding, Reasoning & Problem solving, Numbers & Calculations, Further Number Concepts, Algebra, Measurement, Geometry, Statistics & Probability.There are also online links to help you along the way with self assesments.

    Urgh!!!!!!!!!! Awful book. Confusing instructions, a typo which threw me off balance completely with an exercise. Went to my AQA books in despair in the end to complete the self-assessments necessary for course. (Similar reports from peers.) AVOID at all costs.
