A very straightforward book perfectly placed to inform new trainee teachers. The case studies and examples of misconceptions are particularly helpful and the scenarios can be shared in seminars on the teaching of calculation so that students can reflect and relate to their own experiences in school.

It was considered that whilst this book was written very well, the level was not suitable for young adults.
