Exploding the Number Myth by G.P. Turner

Gwenda Turner attempts to break down the myths surrounding the learning of mathematics. Top page

Complete description

This book has been written as a homage to the wisdom of children. The author thought it would be easy to teach mathematics to the young once they understood that no matter how large a number it was only a collections of ones so II is two and IIIIIII is seven and so on. However she was met with such a look of furious disbelief as she tried to demonstrate that 2 x 5 = 10 it stopped her in her tracks. When she tried to see the problem through this child's eyes she had to admit that he had a point. Twenty five years on and the author hopes she can answer the unvoiced accusations of 'that is a lie!'
