SMILE Mathematics Books

SMILE (Secondary Mathematics Individualised Learning Experiment) was initially developed as a series of practical activities for secondary school students by practising teachers in the 1970's.

Each of these books is a standalone resource full of ideas and suggestions, many of which have been collected or trialled by practising teachers.
