Multiple factors: classroom mathematics for equality and justice

This book illustrates how current teaching methodology and school management and the bias in existing textbooks can and often does disadvantage black, working class and girl students, and how often this might be changed.

They will keep students and their teachers fascinated, motivated and learning the mathematics that our technological age - and the national curriculum - demands. For in maths lessons the students are the Multiple Factors in the equation of the world's economy, resources and growth.
