'Nick Pratt's book looks in detail at the real meaning of teaching mathematics interactively in primary schools. Each section is set clearly within a context, is linked by 'key ideas' – the important bits to think about – and is summarised to give a succinct close to the chapter's content and thinking. It is a book that the reader will definitely find useful and thought provoking. It certainly made me consider how small changes and a wider variety of approaches in the classroom can make big changes in children's learning and understanding of mathematical concepts' - Mike Eatwell, Primary Maths Advisor, Bristol LEA Using a whole-class, interactive approach to teaching mathematics is a key feature of the National Numeracy Strategy (NNS), and this book looks at not only what works but also why things work.
