Editorial Reviews

"Maths Makes Sensea is an inspirational way of teaching maths. Inspirational for so many reasons: the strong methodology which ensures every child learns and understands maths; the high level of training and practical support for teachers from the materials; the way even very complex maths ismade simple and effortless to children - it has been one of the best decisions I ever made. It's quite literally what the title says. It is a way of making complex maths make sense. It is about high expectations and every child being a successful mathematician. Following the training we now knowthat 'complex' mathematical ideas can be made concrete and understandable to very young children." l--iGreg Wallace, Headteacher, Woodbury Down Community Primary School, Hackney, London
