'Every teacher of maths should read this book! It helped me realize why some children are struggling with doing simple word problems' -Amazon reader review

If you are a teacher or student teacher in a nursery or primary school, you need a secure understanding of the mathematical ideas behind the material you will use in the classroom.

-Pauses to reflect and discuss your own mathematical knowledge and experience
