Good Afternoon All!

We have recently received news of a book "Creative Mathematics" which may be of interest
to maths colleagues. For more info see below or go online to:

http://www.cambridge.org/uk/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780883857502

The editors of the MSOR Connections newsletter would like to find a reviewer for this book
and so I invite anyone who would like to write a review from a UK higher education teaching
and learning perspective to contact me expressing your interest.

For more information about the MSOR Connections newsletter and submitting articles,
please goto:

I hope you find the book useful and look forward to hearing from interested reviewers.

Many Thanks..........Robert S

We call to your attention the publication of a book, Creative
Mathematics, by H. S. Wall. You will find a blurb about it at the
Cambridge University Press UK website:

http://www.cambridge.org/uk/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780883857502

This new edition of a 1963 classic, long out of print, is published by
the Mathematical Association of America and, unlike the biography of
R.L. Moore by John Parker, it has been picked up for sale by MAA's UK
distributor.

Wall was a long-time colleague of Professor Moore's at Texas and used
Moore's method of teaching (though Wall independently developed his own
similar one before coming to Texas).

Though Wall intended this as more of a "self-help" book than a textbook,
it has recently been used at the University of Texas at Austin in a
graduate class for pre-service mathematics teachers. They worked on a
chapter or two themselves and compared the approach with other methods.
