A journey into the world of numbers, which are over our heads, under our feet, and all around us. The Numberverse is especially for people who don't like maths. If you're one of those people who find maths boring, hard, annoying or pointless then The Numberverse is for you to enjoy. First we'll look at stuff you find all around you. In the walls, and the bricks. In the arches of the church. In pine cones and petals. Carry on like this and numbers will start jumping out, patterns will appear before your eyes, and everywhere you look the secrets of The Numberverse will open up to you. And we won't stop there. Would you like to know the history of zero? And what people did before zero was invented? And how people got along without fractions and percentages before they were invented? Do we even need them, anyway? It's all in The Numberverse. And you will understand every word of it if you can understand what you are reading now. It's true: if you can count, and you are curious… well, then you have all the knowledge you need for the journey. If maths has always been a closed book to you, now is the time to turn the first page. PLEASE NOTE: There is no test ANYWHERE in this book For primary and secondary teachers of children aged 7 -- 13 years old. The Numberverse addresses the conceptual development of number and shows how to build firm foundations in maths. Also suitable for parents who want to inspire their children, but perhaps never enjoyed maths themselves.

This is not a conventional book. It is designed to stimulate and challenge all people who are curious to find out about the world they inhabit and their place within it. It does this by suggesting questions and lines of questioning on a wide range of topics. The book does not provide answers or model arguments but prompts people to create their own questions and a reading log or journal. To this end, almost all questions have a list of books or articles to provide a starter for stimulating further reading. Once you start, you will be hooked! Never stop questioning.

The name 'Thoughtings' was inspired by a 5-year old who, when asked to explain what thinking is without using the word 'think' said 'It's when you're thoughting'. Children love pondering big philosophical questions like 'Does the universe end?', 'Where is my mind?' and 'Can something be true and false at the same time?'. These verses capture that impulse in the growing mind and feed it further. These are not poems or, at least, not in the traditional sense of the word... They are a kind of poem specifically designed around a particular puzzle or problem that might be thought more philosophy than poetry. Here's to the joy of puzzlement!

Imagine a one-stop shop stacked to the rafters with everything you could ever want to tap into young people's natural curiosity and get them thinking deeply. Well, this is it! Edited by professional philosopher Peter Worley from The Philosophy Shop and with a foreword by Ian Gilbert, this book is jam-packed with ideas, stimuli, thought experiments, activities, short stories, pictures and questions to get young people thinking philosophically. Primarily aimed at teachers to use as a stimuli for philosophical enquiries in the classroom or even as starter activities to get them thinking from the off, it can also be used by parents for some great family thinking or indeed anyone fed up of being told what to think (or urged not to think) and who wants a real neurological workout. The proceeds of the book are going towards The Philosophy Foundation charity.

This book is ideal for teachers, whether they are P4C trained or just experimenting with philosophy. It will help teachers to present ideas and stimulate discussions which both accommodate and engage adolescent appetites. Are human beings flawed? Is murder an act of insanity or just plain thoughtlessness? Do we need a soul? From the fall of Icarus to the rise of Caesar this practical book draws upon history, philosophy and literature to provoke students to think, question and wonder. Divided into chapters on The World, Self, Society and Others, this resource for secondary school is written to give teachers the means to listen rather than teach and to allow the ideas and thoughts of students to form the centre of the lesson. It raises questions on the nature of evil, belief in God, slavery, consumerism, utopia, the limits of freedom, and a whole lot more. With a clear introductory outline on its use both in and out of the classroom, Provocations also contains tips and advice to help guide teachers to span the curriculum. Applicable to History, Geography, RS, Science, Art, English and Citizenship it offers teachers of all subjects the opportunity to introduce a student-centred approach to their lessons. There is also an extensive bibliography for those who wish to explore the topics in greater depth. Provocations is a set of philosophy sessions designed for secondary school and predicated on the pedagogical methods of The Philosophy Foundation. These sessions are mature, challenging and provocative, using history, literature, myth and the world today as their basis. Each session contains particular pedagogical tips and advice and suggestions as to how they can be effectively delivered

This is the type of book many teachers will keep on their desk and use the exercises very regularly; for me it is up there with Geoff Petty's 'Evidence-Based Teaching' and Paul Ginnis's 'The Teacher's Toolkit' as an essential resource. Worley is an excellent clear writer, who communicates very complex ideas very well.Â?? Francis Gilbert [http://www.francisgilbert.co.uk/], teacher, teacher trainer and author of ' I'm a Teacher, Get Me Out of Here' Inspire your class to think more deeply about curriculum subjects and get them actively taking part in exciting philosophy experiments today! This new book by bestselling author and founder of The Philosophy Foundation Peter Worley is a collection of practical lesson and activity plans to use in the primary classroom to get children thinking philosophically and creatively around different curriculum areas. The sessions - called thought adventures - use thought experiments, stories and poems to get children discussing and understanding topics more deeply. Each session is explained step-by-step, with everything you need to 'do' and 'say' spelled out, and all the equipment you need listed with instructions on how to set up each session. You can implement the sessions in the classroom either as a complete lesson or as an activity within another lesson. All the sessions are tried and tested by Peter and his colleagues at The Philosophy Foundation who work with primary schools on a regular basis.

Primary maths is stereotypically loved by a few hairy oddballs, tolerated by most sane primary practitioners; loathed by many. With the right approach, however; the right mindset and sense of the impossible being achievable, maths can be moulded into the diamond in the rough of the primary curriculum. Enter Nick Tiley-Nunn: Britain's most imaginative, most exciting primary maths specialist. Over years of practice he has generated ideas about the teaching of maths that are so distinct, so far out and so utterly brilliant that any primary teacher struggling to grasp the nettle of teaching long division will emerge from communing with his ideas not just with some clichéd sense that 'maths can be fun', but that it can be brilliant, life-enhancing and truly hilarious. This book presents ideas for primary maths teaching so wildly creative and so full of the joy of life that any classroom of kids will be grateful you read it.

Each session in this practical book offers an imaginary situation, followed by a series of questions to encourage children to challenge key philosophical ideas such as values and ethics, gender and identity, and existence and beauty. All the enquiries have been tried and tested, and a handy star system is included to indicate the difficulty level of each one. With a comprehensive introduction and key sections on the philosophy behind the experiments, this book also includes an online teacher's resource to guide practitioners through using the sessions to best effect in the classroom.

this study, an analysis of poetry in Tina Sambal, a Philippine language spoken by about 70,000 persons in northern Zambales province, looks at the characteristics of the different poetic genres and poetic conventions followed in writing songs and poems. Primary emphasis is on phonological restrictions, grammatical liberties, and semantic embellishments. The first chapter describes Tina Sambal poetic genres and their use, focusing on the changing use of songs and poems, 11 specific song types (religious poetry, hortatory songs, life-story songs, entertaining songs, comical songs, compositions for special occasions, poems, serenading and caroling songs, courting songs, love letters, and sad love songs), functions of Tina Sambal songs and poems, traditional singing customs, and comparison with other Philippine languages. The second chapter examines the Tina Sambal poetic conventions, and the third chapter offers a brief conclusion. A separate section--and the longest in the book--consists of a "Chrestomathy" containing typical Tina Sambal poems and songs and an excerpt from one Tina Sambal Passion, each with an introduction and free translation, grouped according to genre. Appended materials include notes on typical features of Tina Sambal orthography and grammar; terms relating to poetry and song; esoteric words used; an index of authors, singers, and contributors; transcriptions of song melodies; and a list of available recorded songs. A glossary of technical terms and a list of references are also included. (MSE)
