Abstract

Improving Primary Mathematics Teaching and Learning Endorsements… “In this book, Mary McAteer brings together contributors with a wealth of experience in research and practice. The way in which practical and theoretical perspectives are brought together with case studies and examples make it a highly readable text and every chapter adds new insights into children’s mathematics learning” Dr Julia Anghileri, University of Cambridge (retired) This book stems from the authors’ shared passion for teaching mathematics in primary schools and offers an exploration of contemporary issues in primary mathematics. Drawing on case studies from practice, it explores a wide range of ideas that support professional reflection and personal development to improve teaching and learning in primary mathematics. Topics covered include: • Using children’s mathematical misconceptions to support teaching and learning • The role of talk in developing mathematical understanding • Evidence-based teaching and learning • Making mathematics real and purposeful beyond the classroom • The role of games in teaching and learning mathematics • ICT and mathematics The book illustrates the ways in which professional development that is rooted in practitioner inquiry and research enables teachers to advance their practice, resulting in improved outcomes for their pupils. Improving Primary Mathematics Teaching and Learning is appropriate for trainee teachers, teachers in their professional development (e.g. MaST) and will be helpful reading for local authority and independent consultants, INSET and CPD providers. Mary McAteer is Director for the Mathematics Specialist Teacher (MaST) programme at Edge Hill University, UK, having previously worked for 21 years a school teacher, primary maths, science and technology consultant. Contributors: Mike Askew, Sue Bailey, Elizabeth Carruthers, Vicki Grinyer, Alice Hansen, Effie Maclellan, Lynne McClure, Suzie Nelson, Carol Rushworth-Little, Steve Sherer, Ian Thompson, Vivien Townsend, Maulfry Worthington.
