Reviews

i hated maths a child but if i had been given Marvellous Maths things might have been different. It's a brilliant interactive and entertaining look at key stage 1 and 2 maths, covering subjects such as numbers, probability, geometry, and statistics with flaps to open, wheels to turn and ideas of things to make and investigations to carry out. It also relates maths to real life which helps in seeing the subject as a useful, practical skill rather than a pointless exercise. -- Clare Poole Booksellers
