Proving that learning math can be fun as well as useful, Foster (a secondary school teacher in Coventry) offers lessons that combine interaction between teachers and students, mutual learning, and play. Each lesson centers on a key mathematical concept or application, with subjects including algebraic expressions and sequences, codes based on a simple fold, Benford's law, roots for divisibility tests and properties of numbers, the Farey sequences of order for fractions, interpretation of graphs, possibility tests and factors, estimation scales and units, symmetry, coordinates, averages and range, constructions, measurements, proofs, transformations, and sophisticated geometric forms. With full explanations for each lesson, this is not only a simple collection of lesson plans but also a reference and a source of inspiration for more experiments and explorations.
