Number and Algebra Colin Foster, Nelson Thornes, 2003, ISBN 0748786686 "Colin
Foster has probably done what many teachers or Maths departments wish had
been done a long while ago." "I was pleasantly surprised at the number of ideas (old
and new)." 
Shape and Space Colin Foster, Nelson Thornes, 2003, ISBN 0748786694 "These
books are just what their titles suggest they should be. They are packed with
ideas for starters, investigations, extension work, plenaries and for
generally enhancing the routine work done in the classroom ... simply a
collection of excellent ideas ... an inspiring source of ideas ... I
thoroughly recommend these books." 
Data Handling, Numeracy and ICT "With only a little preparation these ideas can be
incorporated or attached to a scheme of work to reinforce and vary the
approach ... It is a useful addition to your bookshelf."


“No time to plan? Too busy to be creative? These books fulfil the dreams of busy teachers who need to teach core curriculum topics in ways which stimulate, excite and challenge all their students. Every idea in these books encourages mathematical thinking, deep understanding, and learning key mathematical ideas. Colin Foster has collected a wide range of triedandtested tasks and contexts to teach core curriculum topics and organised them to be accessible for quick planning. Indispensable!” Anne Watson, Professor of Mathematics Education, Oxford University
