The Nuffield Mathematics Project Weaving Guides are single-concept books which give detailed instructions or information about a particular subject.

The first two guides are concerned with the advent of calculators and computers and how they might be used to develop mathematical concepts.

The use and importance of the environment has been stressed thoughout the project. The Environmental geometry guide shows how the study of the environment can lead to geometrical work and Logic completes this series.

Environmental Geometry

This guide from the Nuffield Mathematics Project delves deeper in to how the study of the Environmental can lead to geometrical work. The importance of the environment as a source for mathematical ideas was stressed throughout the main teachers’ guides. The range of activities discussed in this Guide extends beyond...

Probability and Statistics

Probability and statistics, from the Nuffield Mathematics Project, starts with play activities which can develop ideas of fairness and probability through discussions on common facts leading to the collection of data, illustrating it with graphs and charts and drawing...

Computers and Young Children

Computers and young children, written in 1970 for the Nuffield Mathematics Project, took the stance that the computer was 'the most important scientific advancement' at the time; and that the explosively expanding effect of computers on so many aspects of our lives made it important that all members of our...

Desk Calculators

Desk calculators was the first of the Weaving guides written by the Nuffield Project Team for the Nuffield Mathematics Project. This guide was not intended to be a manual of instruction as it was felt that teachers and students could find out for themselves ‘how they work’. It was suggested that each school should...
