About Maths Hammers
“Do you need a Hammer to do Multiplication?”, began its’ life 13 years ago and was produced on an early version of Adobe Illustrator. It was sent out to a number of publishers and rejected as it didn’t “FIT “. It was full colour, not a text book and of cause the interactivy was impossible.
Now finally the technology has caught up with the book. Totally updated with lots of interactivity from the index to sounds to hyperlinks. From the aplause on the front page to the youtube videos of Pythagoras. All hidden within the text for you to discover. And also discover a world of thrills, excitement and wonder. It’s starting place is multiplication but it introduces the “World the Universe and Everything” or 42 whichever you prefer.
So buy a copy and enjoy and send word around to your friends about this remarkable resource. I hope you laugh at, learn from and love this eBook
Maths Hammers is suitable for teachers, parents and children.
Oh! To find out the answer to the question “Do you need a Hammer to do Multiplication?” is, you’ll have to buy the book, the answers on page 44. And if you don’t buy the book you will never ever know.

That means that this information has value, and your friends, neighbours, and co-workers may want to share it.
The information in this document is copyrighted. I would ask that you do not share this information with others, YOU purchased the books, and YOU have a right to use them on your system and with YOUR class only. Another person who has not purchased the books does not have that right. It is the sales of this valuable information that makes the continued publishing of the VIRTUAL TEACHER Newsletter and other eBooks like these ones possible. If enough people disregard that simple economic fact, these eBooks and newsletter will no longer be viable or available.
If your friends think this information is valuable enough to ask you for it, they should think it is valuable enough to purchase on their own. After all, the price is low enough so that just about anyone should be able to afford it. So go forth and popularise iMH and BI, don’t plagiarize them.
