These wonderful, rich lesson ideas offer powerful ways to learn mathematics and have the potential to engage every student in purposeful and enjoyable mathematical thinking. --Colin Foster, Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education, School of Education, University of Nottingham, UK
Mike's ideas don't depend on the teacher's style or personality. Anyone will be able to integrate them into their teaching. Their initial simplicity hooks the students and helps to establish the idea that everyone can do maths. --Corinne Wolfe, Maths Teacher and Maths and Creativity Workshop Leader
If you're the kind of Mathematics teacher that notices palindromic dates and refers to factors of numbers as 'gazintas' then '100 ideas for Outstanding Maths Lessons' is the book for you. Ollerton's book is packed full of enriching ideas to provide your students with the challenge and intrigue that underpins any outstanding Mathematics lesson. I'll be planning dominoes, 99-squares and Geoboards into my upcoming lessons, based on just some of the ideas presented in this book, thank you Mike! --Paul Collins, Maths teacher @mrpcollins
