Summary

This book shows how creative maths can really work. Exploring the ways in which maths skills can be learned through cross-curricular activities based on visual arts and music, the book presents maths as a meaningful and exciting subject which holds no fears for children.
The authors recognise that while maths-phobia prevails in our increasingly mathematicised world, attitudes and approaches to teaching the subject need to be reviewed, and issues such as gender stereotyping, which encourage maths-apathy, need to be tackled at an early stage.
Within this collection of classroom-based stories are detailed examples of integrative mathematic projects; these will give teachers the confidence to try out cross-curricular activities in their classes. The book also provides support with difficult areas such as assessment, planning and development.
Fascinating to read in its own right this book will appeal to the specialist and non-specialist alike.
