This report aims to help those concerned to further mathematical education, at all levels, in Commonwealth countries.



The Teaching of Mathematics at Primary Level

Mathematics is an abstract subject, and because of this, in the past, it induced fear in both young children and students. But in the last ten years there has been a fundamental change of outlook and the new generation is no longer condemned to a complete diet of instruction by teachers (however good). Nowadays, pupils are encouraged far more to think for themselves and they investigate mathematical problems in individual and sometimes highly original ways.
