Children will sense differences of opinion and will value these potentially rich opportunities less. Do we need to be accurate? Most of the mathematics that we use in our everyday lives relies on guesswork and approximations. We estimate how much our shopping will cost, how much milk we’ll need between now and next Thursday, whether we’ve got time to have a bath before we go out, or how many rolls of wallpaper we will need. Some calculations are required but there is usually a significant amount of leeway.

Apparently centipedes may have less than 20 or over 300 pairs of legs! Just imagine the problem-solving or investigative possibilities those numbers open up. 1 highlights some other stories that present problem-solving opportunities (full details of books may be found at the end of this chapter). Story-lines can be developed without reference to a particular book – the published book can simply be regarded as a starting point. Moon Jump a Cowntdown (Brown 1993), sadly out of print, provides a good example as just such a starting point.
