The Author: R.M. O’Toole B.A., M.C., M.S.A., C.I.E.A.
Ros has been a state examiner (UK) since 1992 and is an experienced teacher, lecturer, consultant and author of 12 mathematics books.
She is a member of the Society of Authors and an affiliate member of the Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors.
From an early age, Ros’s father, Jack Tumelty, encouraged in her a love of mathematics. This stayed with her. Later, as a teacher, she saw a need for specifically designed maths books to teach and test. Teaching gave her hands-on experience of helping pupils of differing abilities, thus enabling her to design the material in graduated order of difficulty. Also, examining taught her how to test and set objective questions appropriate to the level of study. Over a period of more than 30 years, she has written copious notes to help pupils. Keenly aware of problem areas, she devised ways to solve them. That is how the books and material on this website came into existence.

Barney established the Mathematics Publishing Company, a member of the Publishers’ Association, in 1994 to publish Ros’s work. The books were on sale from leading bookstores, and sold directly to schools.
He later established www.mathslearning.com to act as a shop window on the internet. The material is now available in e-book format which you can download straight into your computer in minutes. This means you have the benefit of being able to start using the material right away.
