Maths bargain

TEACHING MATHEMATICS AT KEY STAGE 2. By William Rawson. Chris Kington. Pounds 10.95.

William Rawson's book wears its learning lightly and has a real classroom feel. A splendid survey of key issues in mathematics is followed by a section on interpreting and implementing the national curriculum, another on the role of information and communications technology in maths, and one of photo-copiable supplementary resources. The last section would be useful if you felt, as I did, continually inspired to go away and try out some of the many excellent practical suggestions.

The section on ICT is both stimulating and accessible enough to get non-specialists started, yet still interesting to teachers for whom computer use is normal.

The book is surely destined to become a standard introduction to maths education for a generation of teachers in initial training. It will also revive the enthusiasm of many a grizzled co-ordinator, or serve to update the expertise of any teacher who wants to understand what has been happening in maths teaching between the national curriculum and the soon-to-be-upon-us national numeracy strategy.

One of the year's best bargains.
