The Nuffield Mathematics Project Teachers' Guides cover the topics of computation and structure, shape and size, and graphs leading to algebra. The books do not cover years, or indeed any specific time; they simply develop themes and therefore show the teacher how to allow one child to progress at a different pace to another.

The guides contain direct teaching suggestions, examples of children's work, and suggestions for class discussions and out-of-school activities. To put the guides in context, an overview of the aims of the project are explained in I do and I understand whilst The story so far attempts to summarise the early Teacher's guides as well as making reference to two of the Weaving guides. The Guide to the guides is an extended and amended version of The story so far but also contains extracts from schemes of work. For those wishing to look ahead to the secondary phase Into Secondary School is a survey of the aims of the project as it would affect middle or secondary school students.

Maths with Everything

This Nuffield Mathematics Project book is concerned with the mathematical experiences of students from five to seven years old. These experiences help students to acquire concepts, which lead later to skill in computation. This skill is based on understanding rather than on rote learning. It is a companion to a...

Beginnings (Circle Series)

Beginnings, from the Nuffield Mathematics Project, is concerned principally with students in their first few years at school and how their experiences of life gradually extend their mathematical thinking.

This guide is a 'beginning' in another way; it is concerned with some of the basic ideas at the...
