A Look Ahead
A look ahead is a short weaving guide from the Nuffield Mathematics Project intended mainly for teachers of older students in upper primary and lower secondary.
The object of the guide was to re-state the aims and methods of the project in the light of experience so far, and to consider some of the problems which were then arising. It attempts to answer the question of 'where is it going?'. Other questions discussed are 'How does this fit in with CSE?' or even the 11-plus. Others have wondered 'Why new mathematics?' and whether what we've already written has any relevance to the outside world of today.
The contents list may help the reader to find where their own particular problems are discussed.
