Primary maths is stereotypically loved by a few hairy oddballs, tolerated by most sane primary practitioners; loathed by many. With the right approach, however; the right mindset and sense of the impossible being achievable, maths can be moulded into the diamond in the rough of the primary curriculum. Enter Nick Tiley-Nunn: Britain's most imaginative, most exciting primary maths specialist. Over years of practice he has generated ideas about the teaching of maths that are so distinct, so far out and so utterly brilliant that any primary teacher struggling to grasp the nettle of teaching long division will emerge from communing with his ideas not just with some clich├ęd sense that "maths can be fun", but that it can be brilliant, life-enhancing and truly hilarious. This book presents ideas for primary maths teaching so wildly creative and so full of the joy of life that any classroom of kids will be grateful you read it.

Topics covered include: numeracy, creativity, geometry, addition, division, subtraction, multiplication, four operations, calculation, algebra, measurement, statistics, data handling.


Nick Tiley-Nunn is Deputy Head at a school in Suffolk, having previously been Assistant Head and SENCo at a school in London. He has been described as "A nationally significant talent at Maths teaching."
