Mathematics Begins

Mathematics begins (1967) is a revised and enhanced version of the Circle series ‘Beginnings' produced by the Nuffield Mathematics Project. As with the earlier guide it is concerned with students in their first few years at school and how their experiences of life gradually extend their mathematical thinking....

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...

Into Secondary School

This short booklet, from the Nuffield Mathematics Project, is for teachers of children from eleven upwards, whether in secondary or middle schools. It describes the aims of the Project as it affects these children, and so is complementary to the Introductory guide, I do and I...

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...

The Story So Far

The story so far, from the Nuffield Mathematics Project, attempts to summarise some of the early Teachers’ Guides. References are also made to Desk calculators and Space. The purpose of the book was two-...

Logic

This book, which forms part of the weaving series from the Nuffield Mathematics Project, is an introduction to logic in a very general sense.

Its main aim was to help students aged from about 8 to 12 to think clearly and logically. In this book, students are encouraged to consider how they use the logically...

A Look Ahead

A look ahead is a short weaving guide from the Nuffield Mathematics Project intended mainly for teachers of older students in upper primary and lower secondary.

The object of the guide was to re-state the aims and methods of the project in the light of experience so far, and to consider some of the problems...

Guide to the Guides

The Guide to the guides provided an opportunity to take a brief look backward at the work of the writing team and the trial areas of the Nuffield Mathematics Project (age range 5 to 13), and also forward to possibilities for the future. This guide is in two sections, each with its own introduction. Section...

Computation and Structure

These guides from the Nuffield Mathematics Project follow on from the Beginnings guide. They deal mainly with number but also cover weights and measures. In Computation and structure 2, the concept of number is further developed. A section on the history of natural numbers and weights and measures...
