Research has shown that the single most important factor in creating a positive attitude to mathematics is a pupil's perception of the usefulness of the subject. The traditional secondary school mathematics curriculum has always attempted to show mathematics to be useful, but the questions were often contrived to try to use the mathematics being taught or on topics such as "stocks and shares" which could hardly seem relevant to a secondary school student.

This book for teachers, however, suggests projects which cater for a wide range of concepts and skills, as well as how to assess the results. Subject matter for project ideas include:

  • Sports
  • Games and amusements
  • The home
  • Budgeting
  • History
  • Transport
  • Public Services
  • Technology
  • Space
  • Links to other subjects
