You'll learn the key ideas of classic areas of mathematics like arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus, but you'll also have fun fooling around with Fibonacci numbers, investigating infinity, and marveling over mathematical magic tricks that will make you look like a math genius! A mathematician who is known throughout the world as the “mathemagician,” Arthur Benjamin mixes mathematics and magic to make the subject fun, attractive, and easy to understand. In The Magic of Math, Benjamin does more than just teach skills: with a tip of his magic hat, he takes you on as his apprentice to teach you how to appreciate math the way he does. He motivates you to learn something new about how to solve for x, because there is real pleasure to be found in the solution to a challenging problem or in using numbers to do something useful. But what he really wants you to do is be able to figure out why, for that's where you'll find the real beauty, power, and magic of math. If you are already someone who likes math, this book will dazzle and amuse you. If you never particularly liked or understood math, Benjamin will enlighten you and—with a wave of his magic wand—turn you into a math lover.

Our mission: to make math a fun part of kids' everyday lives. We all know it's wonderful to read bedtime stories to kids, but what about doing math? Many generations of Americans are uncomfortable with math and numbers, and too often we hear the phrase, "I'm just not good at math!" For decades, this attitude has trickled down from parents to their kids, and we now have a culture that finds math dry, intimidating, and just not cool. Bedtime Math wants to change all that. Inside this book, families will find fun, mischief-making math problems to tackle—math that isn't just kid-friendly, but actually kid-appealing. With over 100 math riddles on topics from jalapeños and submarines to roller coasters and flamingos, this book bursts with math that looks nothing like school. And with three different levels of challenge (wee ones, little kids, and big kids), there's something for everyone. We can make numbers fun, and change the world, one Bedtime Math puzzle at a time.

'Tackles an area of the curriculum many teachers lack confidence in.' 'Lots of good starting points'. 'Spans a lot of material and is strong on diverse learning styles.' 'Clear explanation and good visual layour, very innovative in approach.' - Judging Panel for NASEN/TES Book Award 'The book is rich in lively teaching suggestions and in insights into the impact of different forms of explanation' - Debate '[C]arries us away from narrow views of ability and special needs and into the consideration of difference. The author takes us through lively discussions of many aspects of mathematics learning. Each section offers learning and teaching ideas involving visual and kinaesthetic approaches. The book is a compendium of sound ideas rather than a collection of startlingly new approaches. But throughout it has the great strength of being exceptionally clear in its arguments, descriptions and drawings. The design is generally helpful with plenty of illustrations, as befits the book's message. There are handy pages of photocopiable resources. This is a lively and often passionate account of ways of ensuring that multi-sensory approaches infect mathematics learning. As the author says, "pictures in the mind can help all pupils". We might add, "They help all teachers too"' - TES Extra for Special Needs 'If you have found pupils struggling to understand some aspects of mathematics at any age then this book is for you. It is a very readable book that would interest all those who work in classrooms, whether as a teacher or support worker with all ages and abilities, for those who work with older pupils as it gives possible approaches to use with those for whom basic skills are weak or have difficulty in understanding some of the concepts required of GCSE examinations' - Alison Parish, Second in Mathematics Department, Stowmarket High School, Suffolk Read the full review as posted on the Association of Teachers of Mathematics website! 'It is a highly practical book. One strength is the way that it develops a topic from the very basics through to the harder concepts. There are a large number of activities that are 'ready to run' but these really are just a starting point for teachers to begin thinking about teaching topics in a different way, and from these teachers will be able to develop their own approach. Although this book is focusing on pupils who are visual and kinaesthetic learners, the great majority of learners adopt a mixture of learning styles, so this approach will benefit the entire class. Worth a read!' - Maths Coordinator's File 'This excellent and very informative teaching resource is about teaching mathematics to pupils who have learning differences. [It] is very practical and easy to read. A really nice feature is the inclusion of photocopiable resource sheets allowing readers to try out easily the ideas suggested in the book. This resource is highly recommended and will be very suitable for maths teachers in primary and secondary schools, SENCOs and teaching assistants' - British Journal of Special Education 'This book is about making mathematics visible and tangible -- not something that just lies flat on the page. Dipping into it will provide instantly usable suggestions across a variety of topics at different levels: from early number concepts through to fractions and ratios, algebra, aspects of geometry (including angles and circles), and data handling. When you get a chance to read it more thoroughly you will find arguments for using these approaches, consideration of some of the pitfalls to avoid, and inspiration to develop different ways of helping students to achieve deep and connected understandings. For any teacher who wants to provide students with opportunities for visual and kinaesthetic learning in mathematics' - The Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers Inc. 'A very good book, offering teachers, SENCOs and teaching assistants guidelines, strategies and practical activities to access the thought processes of pupils with different learning styles. It has an easy-to-read format giving suggestions, rather than dictat, on the use of "models to think" and is a unique document for those who have input into the furthering of the teaching and learning of mathematics' - Mathematics in School How can you make maths exciting and meaningful for all your pupils? Some pupils find even basic concepts in mathematics difficult to grasp and it can be a challenge to make lessons accessible to all. This book offers practising teachers a range of approaches to making maths clear for struggling students. It looks at the different ways in which maths can be taught so that pupils with different learning styles can be stimulated. Maths is visible and tangible - not something that just lies flat on the page. Included are: - ideas to be used in lessons - suggestions for exciting, visual ways to teach basic concepts - lots of practical advice and guidance. The book shows teachers how to unlock mathematics for all their learners, and it encourages the use of a variety of methods to teach the subject. It provides a valuable resource for maths teachers in both primary and secondary schools, for SENCOs and teaching assistants, and for those delivering initial teacher training or inservice courses. Tandi Clausen-May is an educational researcher responsible for the development of a range of mathematics curriculum and assessment materials. She delivers popular workshops on teaching mathematics around the United Kingdom. She also writes regular articles on mathematics teaching for educational journals and newspapers.

Mel Gibson teaching Euclidean geometry, Meg Ryan and Tim Robbins acting out Zeno's paradox, Michael Jackson proving in three different ways that 7 x 13 = 28. These are just a few of the intriguing mathematical snippets that occur in hundreds of movies. Burkard Polster and Marty Ross pored through the cinematic calculus to create this thorough and entertaining survey of the quirky, fun, and beautiful mathematics to be found on the big screen. Math Goes to the Movies is based on the authors’ own collection of more than 700 mathematical movies and their many years using movie clips to inject moments of fun into their courses. With more than 200 illustrations, many of them screenshots from the movies themselves, this book provides an inviting way to explore math, featuring such movies as: • Good Will Hunting• A Beautiful Mind• Stand and Deliver• Pi• Die Hard• The Mirror Has Two Faces The authors use these iconic movies to introduce and explain important and famous mathematical ideas: higher dimensions, the golden ratio, infinity, and much more. Not all math in movies makes sense, however, and Polster and Ross talk about Hollywood’s most absurd blunders and outrageous mathematical scenes. Interviews with mathematical consultants to movies round out this engaging journey into the realm of cinematic mathematics. This fascinating behind-the-scenes look at movie math shows how fun and illuminating equations can be.

In their first, bestselling, book Maths for Mums and Dads Rob Eastaway and Mike Askew helped you and your child make sense of the new methods and topics covered in primary school maths. But as your child embarks on secondary school, two new issues arise. First, in the build-up to GCSE, school children begin to do maths that you probably have never encountered before – or if you have, you never really got it in the first place, and have long since forgotten. Factorising? Finding the locus?Solving for x? Probability distributions? What do these even mean? More Maths for Mums and Dads gives you all the ammunition to help you to help your teenager get to grips with and feel more confident about – and hopefully even enjoy – GCSE maths. It covers in straightforward and easy-to-follow terms the maths your child will encounter in the build up to GCSE, in many cases gives practical and fun examples of where the maths crops up in the real world. In addition, the authors introduce the notion of estimation and coin a new term, Zequals. Using the Zequals method will help develop your teenager's feel for numbers, which in turn could transform their experience and enjoyment of everyday maths.
