Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This book stems from the authors' shared passion for primary mathematics teaching and offers an exploration of contemporary issues facing teachers. Drawing on research and case studies from practice, the book explores a wide range of concepts as starting points for 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 teachers undertaking professional development programmes (e.g. MaST, MA programmes), trainee teachers and staff on those programmes, both local authority and independent.
