This review is from: The Heart of Mathematics: An invitation to effective thinking: A Guide to Effective Thinking (Textbooks in Mathematical Sciences) (Hardcover)
The Heart of Mathematics is one of the best texts designed to improve mathematical thinking I have come across. It is packed with interesting problems and resources.
I am not sure that I would have paid the new price, but the used copy that I purchased was much cheaper and in very good condition.
I have only had the book for few weeks, but have already used a number of the tasks in my lessons (KS3 and 4). It has worked particularly well with getting some of the lowest ability students motivated and interested. They recently came to a lesson armed with problems that they had researched themselves to challenge me. This is a group that would normally be reluctant to do any work at all!
