Book Description

17 May 2007 0199151504 978-0199151509
This book is aimed at gifted and talented students in year 7, although it can also be used in the primary curriculum for highly able year 6 students. It consists of tightly focused sets of problems, with each set devoted to core ideas from the Framework but approached in a way that cultivates more profound mathematical thinking. The book is structured into a number of sections, which comes in three varieties: tasters, core, and extensions, thus recognising differentiation within the gifted spectrum. The materials can be used within ordinary lessons for top sets.

The mix of topics and approaches in any book seems to provide "some you like, some you don't", and this book is no exception. Some "extension maths" activities are the classic puzzles, filling in the gaps in column additions, for example. Others I found disappointing - the LCM and HCF extension page (in the "core" part of the text) is pairs of numbers to find the LCM and HCF; the integer division activity (again in the "core" part) has a number of division sums to do and the associated multiplication sum to write, finished with a couple of the more puzzle activities. Good if you are looking for something for practice, but I'd rather hoped for something using higher level skills within the topics - especially given some of Gardiner's other books.

As long as you're expecting something of this ilk, then fine. But if, like me, you were hoping for something more imaginative and, dare I say inspiring, its a bit disappointing.
