"Awonderful resource for readers who will be developing curriculum and lessons. Each content branch is clearly explained and has examples for easy development. Professionals will be able to easily build further examples."

I am sure that I will be quoting many of the key points presented in the book often to others in my school as they are points which i firmly believe in, and it's great to see them stated in print by noted mathematicians.
Melissa Miller
