Popular Australian author and inspirational teacher, Bill Handley, has developed and, over the years, refined methods of teaching mathematics and learning strategies that have achieved amazing results. His best-selling book, Speed Mathematics convinced readers that people who excel at maths use better strategies and are not necessarily more intelligent. This book contains additional methods and applications based on the strategies taught in Speed Mathematics that make the principles clearer, encourage creative thought, and are just plain fun. The book was written for young people but people of any age will enjoy it. The book has notes throughout for parents and teachers. By following his innovative approach you will have kids playing with numbers, performing lightning quick calculations and, most of all, having fun! Bill claims: 'If you are good at maths, people think you are intelligent. People will treat you like you are a genius. Your teachers and your friends will treat you differently. You will even think differently about yourself'. The emphasis in this book is on playing with mathematics. Enjoy it. Show off what you learn and make mathematics your favourite subject.
