Learning and Teaching Mathematics Without a Textbook
Learning and Teaching Mathematics Without a Textbook
by Mike Ollerton
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting and accessible series of tasks for the secondary maths classroom, 21 Nov 2014
This book really helped me establish the way that I teach today and went on to form the basis of many of the tasks I used in my own publication (Big Ideas, also available on amazon). Mike lays out a clear philosophy for how textbooks are not needed in the maths classroom and puts this philosophy in to practice with a series of interesting and accessible tasks that I have used successfully for years.

Thinkers: A Collection of Activities to Provoke Mathematical Thinking
Thinkers: A Collection of Activities to Provoke Mathematical Thinking
by Chris Bills
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Develop your questioning with this fantastic resource, 12 Nov 2014
This book challenged and changed the way that I approach my questioning in the classroom and has ultimately steered the way that I interact with my students. The format is deceptively simple: outline a style of question and then exemplify it across the mathematics curriculum from primary school all the way up to A-level. Every maths teacher should read and use this book and those that have done so should revisit it from time to time to refresh their questioning style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cryptics made clear, 2 Oct 2010
I bought this book after deciding that I was fed up of looking at cryptic crosswords and feeling stupid, and with this book I am now a slow, but regular, cryptic solver. The book doubles as an explanatory essay and reference (for common acronyms) and features 13 practice puzzles too try. I had a lot of fun working through this book and I recommend it to anyone who has even a passing interest in improving their cryptic crossword skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideas and ideas and ideas, 19 Dec 2009
Mike Ollerton is a vehement supporter of mixed ability teaching and in this book gives 100+ ideas to help maths teachers in doing it themselves, but even if your school uses setting the ideas here still work wonderfully. Anything written by this man is gold. Check it out it is absolutely brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not read yet but..., 4 Sep 2009
...the work of John Mason is vitally important to mathematics educators the world over whether they know it or not. A truly great man with such insight, such depth of thought it's hard to believe at times. If you haven't checked out Thinking Mathematically yet, then do so...it could change your life!
