The maths books
As well as our two books, OnetoOne and Unqualified
Education, we have produced a set of four maths books, each with
five hundred sums in, answers at the back, and a cartoon on every page
(each about ninety pages long).

How they came about 

What makes them different 


How I found them I have done sums this way all my life and therefore I see it as the most natural thing in the world. Doing a list of sums where the answers do not lead on, seems pointless and also boring. There is no excitement in going on to the next sum when you haven't already got a pretty good idea of what it is going to be. When I was doing these books I was always so eager to go onto the next sum, that I simply didn't want to stop. I remember one time in particular when I began and finished the multiplication book all in one day! It sounds strange, but I found them as gripping as the most exciting chapter of a book and I frequently found myself laughing out loud as I worked out the answer  I wasn't the only one to do this either! 
Who they are for
These books start simple: 1+1. Throughout the book they get imperceptibly
trickier, till by the end they are as hard as can be. If one has started from
the beginning one doesn't really notice the end ones being a lot more difficult
than 1+1, and that is why it is good to start from the beginning. I would say
they are not too young for anybody, but obviously they are too old for young
children. Young children would probably be able to do them, but they wouldn't
enjoy them as much as if they were older. For this reason, as with all maths, it
is best to wait until the motivation comes from the child, and then the child is
sure to enjoy them very much indeed.

All in all, these are sums books I highly recommend. They are not only enjoyable, and quite addictive, but occasionally give one a glimpse into that vast and mysterious world of mathematics, which seems as hard to grasp or understand as the endless night sky, and leave one with quite a rare feeling of being overawed by numbers.
