Product reviews for Messy Maths

Jonathan Lear, teacher, speaker and author of Guerrilla Teaching

Even if only a fraction of the ideas contained in Messy Maths are put into practice, they will still make a huge difference to children's knowledge and understanding of maths. What really struck me whilst reading this book was a recognition of the problems we create for ourselves with older children because we don't spend enough time developing their conceptual understanding - leading to situations in which 10- and 11-year-olds have no real concept of what a metre actually looks like, or what a kilogramme feels like. Through her practical, easy-to-apply and - in most cases - zero-cost strategies, Juliet Robertson offers the perfect solution.

Rooted in exceptional early years practice, Messy Maths is an indispensable guide to getting maths right - not just with our youngest learners, but with all children.
