Reviews

This book is a goldmine offering several hundred teaching strategies as fresh and original suggestions. It describes undergraduate mathematics as an unbounded field because questions and answers generate a new crop of ideas. The book is liberally spattered with stimulating quotations., MSOR (LTSN Maths, Stats & OR Network)
A valuable, interesting, lively contribution in teaching mathematics and useful also for those who teach mathematics in other disciplines. Set out in an accessible way, it should be on the shelves of all involved., Teaching in Higher Education
