      Comments about Teaching Mathematics:

      Considering this is a book written for teachers, looking at how they can teach maths effectively, the book is not useful for teachers to use.

      The book seems to puts forward viewpoints that are at odds with the majority of mathematics education professionals and lecturers.

      While some sections of the book are useful for initial planning and diagnostics, but in terms of concrete examples and resources for ongoing units, the book fails to provide these. Its theory which is full-on and not user-friendly.
