In this marvellous book Steve Chinn presents concisely and clearly knowledge and wisdom gained over many years of experience. Whilst the book is firmly based on current scientific findings the focus is on practical and effective teaching strategies. I urge all teachers of mathematics to read it. -- Robin Moseley MA MSc OBE
Another superb book from Steve Chinn - using his many years of experience Steve delivers a book that will be essential reading for all teachers.

Steve Chinn provides insightful strategies and contextualised approaches based on the latest evidence based research in a straightforward and 'easy to read' manner. The educational sector owes much to Steve Chinn and this book is testimony to that. -- Dr. Gavin Reid, Practitioner, Psychologist and Author
