SMILE (1984)


SMILE Centre, Middle Row School, Kensal Road, London W10 5DB, 2 ed. (ISBN: 0708500099).

SMILE is an ILEA mathematics project which produces learning resources for children of all abilities in the 11-16 age range. Most of the thousand items currently on the SMILE network have been written by practising teachers and this includes the design of the 30 computer programs. The content of these MICROSMILE programs ranges across the whole spectrum of mathematics and they all aim to encourage children to think mathematically. The programs are designed to be used by children working independently. Many of the activities are most successful when two or three children are working together.

"The library is not a shrine for the worship of books. It is not a temple where literary incense must be burned or where one's devotion to the bound book is expressed in ritual. A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas - a place where history comes to life." — Norman Cousins, 1954
