Reviews

This should appeal to those interested in numbers or how things work. They could also be used as a classroom extention activity.

It's a great approach and one that will capture the interest. Each title includes a glossary to explain any mathematical words or terms that the reader may struggle with, to aid the learning process. Functional maths is a part of the new programmes of study; it involves using maths in everyday situations and these books support that excellently with their practical approach.
