5.0 out of 5 stars PGCE student 15 Sep 2011
By Mz pink
Format:Paperback
This book is comprehensive and easy to follow. I have found the tasks provided throughout the chapters to be thought provoking and enable you to being a more reflective teacher. I am now really looking forward to starting my course and becoming a fully fledged maths teacher.

Very useful and practical with lots of task that helped me understand the system quite well. I am from India, studied there up until my Ph. D., came to the UK eight years ago but was completely new to the UK Education System. So, this book is truly my companion while I am studying for my PGCE.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well thought-through book 9 Sep 2012
By ZR09
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read about 3 chapters of the book so far and it covers a lot of interesting points and is easy to read. It sets a lot of exercises alongside each chapter, some of which are very helpful. However quite a few exercises assume that you are in a school and teaching, and as I'm not currently in a placement school I don't find all of the exercises relevant.
