Industry Reviews

'A refreshing and inspiringbook with updated sections that take account of current issues in practice inrelation to functional mathematics, assessment and the use of technologies tosupport learning. Thought provoking, accessible and relevant to both teachersin training and practising professionals.'Jenni Back, Associate Professor of Mathematics Education, University ofPlymouth, UK 'After morethan a decade of teaching maths "successfully" I was introduced to some of thetasks found in this book, by a much younger colleague. The impact of using suchtasks was enormous and learners were readily engaged and showing signs of enjoyment. I can only describe the experience as anepiphany. This book shows how Mike's pedagogy can be implemented into a school- we have a long way to go, but there is no turning back!' Jeanette Denton, 2nd in Maths, MillHill County High School, UK 'Everything Mike writes is underpinned by a fundamental belief in the natural powers innate in each and every learner. This is as true of the latest edition of Getting the Buggers to Add Up as it is of anything else he is written, and this philosophy has profoundly affected me as a teacher of mathematics. This book should be read and reflected upon by everyone involved in maths teaching beginner and veteran alike: an invaluable resource.'
