Dr Bill Barton, University of Auckland 'This is one of those rare texts which one can wholeheartedly recommend to teachers across the whole spectrum from idealistic novice to fatigued veteran. It is intellectually provocative and intensely practical.' Dr William Higginson, Queen's University Canada Mike Ollerton is Senior Lecturer in Mathematics Education at St Martin's College, Lancaster.
