In our daily experiences, we encounter mathematics on a regular basis in one form or another: whether it is making breakfast (measuring), driving to work (spatial awareness) or buying a coffee (using money). We use maths in some way every day, and therefore it is an important life skill. Children are naturally curious and keen to learn about their world, and this interest includes mathematics. This book is intended for practitioners, teachers and parents who would like to explore and investigate maths concepts to enrich children's experiences and extend their thinking and learning.
