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...

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...

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...

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...

Problem Cards

This collection, part of the Nuffield Mathematics Project, contains two packs of problem cards that have been designed for use by students in conjunction with the main work
described in the Teachers' Guides. It is intended that the majority of students should at least be able to 'have a go' at most of the...

Shape and Size

These Nuffield Mathematics Project guides focus on shape and size. Shape and size 2 is the first guide from the Nuffield Project to be concerned with shape and size although there was some preliminary material in Beginnings. The guide has three sections: a general introduction, ideas and topics...

Space

This 'weaving guide’ from the Nuffield Mathematics Project prepared to show how the main themes such as Computation and structure and Shape and size could become interwoven in work on a particular topic. The title should really perhaps be 'The geometry of inner space'. The human problems involved might form another...
