The Maths Book

The Maths Book is an easy to use, interactive guide to learning first concepts in mathematics.

Shirley Shaw, now retired, has been a secondary school maths teacher up to A level, a teacher training consultant and a private tutor. She brings 60 years of experience to this new educational series designed to help parents and education professionals make maths an integral part of everyday play.

Enjoy reading this book with your children, exploring how numbers work through clear step-by-step lessons and fun activities that will complement learning in their early school years and build up confidence via a concrete understanding of first concepts. Creating an essential foundation for future learning, The Maths Book will inspire children to develop a lifelong love of maths.

Working from Early Years Foundation Stage mathematics through Key Stages 1 and 2, The Maths Book can also be enjoyed with booster groups in secondary schools and people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) of all ages.

 “For more than half a century I have helped many children and young people between the ages of 4 and 20 with their mathematics. My aim is always to ensure children enjoy it, are challenged by it, never get bored, understand what they are doing, and grow to think mathematically.

When I reached the age of 81, my younger daughter Tara presented me with a new grandson, Rufus. She asked me to write down some of the things I did with her when she was little, and with all the other children I have worked with since, so that she can do the same with Rufus.

So, to Tara, Rufus and all other parents and children who use this book: have fun and enjoy!”

This is the first in a series of titles that focus on common areas of difficulty in mathematics.
