A Practical Guide to Transforming Primary Mathematics offers inspiration and ideas for all training and practising teachers committed to making mathematics enjoyable, inclusive, engaging and successful. The companion to Mike Askew’s bestselling book, Transforming Primary Mathematics, this practical guide focuses on showing you how to unlock the powerful potential of a small set of consistent principles and practices, known as the teaching tripod, to develop a coherent approach to teaching mathematics. Organised around the major strands of the curriculum - number, calculations, shape and space, measures, and data handling – it offers an accessible introduction to the teaching tripod, a careful choice of tasks, supported by a range of tools that extend our natural abilities and held together by careful attention to classroom talk. A range of classroom tasks, each including key learning outcomes, clear links to the framework, links to relevant research, and suggestions for making the tasks easier or harder, are offered for every topic, helping you plan units of work for meaningful learning. A Practical Guide to Transforming Primary Mathematics offers all teachers a vision, rationale and ideas for how teaching can support better learning of mathematics but also encourage learners to see themselves as being capable of learning mathematics, and wanting to learn it.

Fully updated to reflect the new curriculum, the revised edition of Transforming Primary Mathematics sets out key theories and cutting-edge research in the field to enable teachers to take a fresh look at how they teach mathematics. The book encourages teachers to reflect on their own beliefs and values about mathematics, and asks them to question whether their current methods meet the needs of all learners, and the challenge of having high expectations for all. It provides clear, practical approaches to help implement fundamental change in classroom environments, and offers motivational teaching styles to ensure meaningful mathematics learning. Chapters take an inspiring, sometimes controversial, and often unconventional look at the subject of mathematics, by: endorsing the use of a ‘new mathematics’ – one based on problem solving, modelling, inquiry and reasoning, not on abstract rules, memorising, and regurgitation arguing that there is more to maths teaching than ‘death by a thousand worksheets’ challenging norms, such as the practice of sorting children into sets based on their perceived mathematical ability asking whether mathematical ability is innate or a result of social practices examining what a ‘mastery’ approach might entail highlighting the role of variation in supporting learning advocating an environment where teachers are encouraged to take risks. Transforming Primary Mathematics is for all primary school teachers who want to make mathematics welcoming, engaging, inclusive and successful.

The digital age provides ample opportunities for enhanced learning experiences for students; however, it can also present challenges for educators who must adapt to and implement new technologies in the classroom. The Handbook of Research on Transforming Mathematics Teacher Education in the Digital Age is a critical reference source featuring the latest research on the development of educators’ knowledge for the integration of technologies to improve classroom instruction. Investigating emerging pedagogies for preservice and in-service teachers, this publication is ideal for professionals, researchers, and educational designers interested in the implementation of technology in the mathematics classroom.

Digital technologies permeate our lives. We use them to communicate, research, process, record, and for entertainment. They influence the way we interact in the world, the way we live. Digital technologies also offer the potential to transform the nature of the learning process in mathematics. The learning environment, the types of tasks learners can engage with, and the nature of that engagement differs from working in other environments. The Internet, for instance, presents greater scope for child-centered, inquiry-based learning. Dynamic geometry software and GoogleEarth offer interactive ways of exploring shape, position and space that is not possible with the pencil-and-paper medium. This book provides insights into how mathematical understanding emerged for primary-aged children (5-13 years) when they investigated mathematical tasks through digital media. It considers learning theories that are frequently used in mathematics education, and situates a contemporary interpretive approach within those perspectives. A key purpose was to provide some practical tasks for teachers/teacher educators to incorporate digital technologies into their mathematics programmes, tasks that have been used successfully for learning. This is a significant reference book for primary-school teacher education and a valuable resource for all schools teaching at that age.

Excellent mathematics teachers make a major difference to the learning outcomes of the students they teach. What are the professional skills and knowledge that really matter? Teaching Secondary School Mathematics is a research based introduction to the professional knowledge, attributes and practices needed to teach mathematics well at secondary level. The authors explain the challenges that secondary mathematics teachers face today, and how they can build on the experiences students bring from primary school and from outside the classroom to ensure students develop concepts and skills in mathematical thinking and a positive attitude to mathematics. They outline the secondary mathematical curriculum and methods of assessment, and examine the pedagogical strategies teachers can use to engage student interest in mathematical concepts. They emphasise the importance of working with mathematical reasoning and problem solving, real world applications, and mathematical communication skills. The core mathematical topics covered at secondary level are reviewed, and the authors also explore the issues teachers need to consider with students of diverse backgrounds. 'I highly recommend this book to practising mathematics teachers as well as pre-service teachers. The combination of research and practical teaching ideas ensures current and worthwhile advice for teaching secondary or middle school students.' Dr Judy Anderson, The University of Sydney 'An excellent book - very readable, interspersed with useful tasks which are grounded in attending to effective classroom practices. A much overdue resource for initial teacher preparation courses.' Associate Professor Glenda Anthony, Massey University

Wir sind umgeben von Zahlen. Ob auf Kreditkarten gestanzt oder auf Münzen geprägt, ob auf Schecks gedruckt oder in den Spalten computerisierter Tabellen aufgelistet, überall beherrschen Zahlen unser Leben. Sie sind auch der Kern unserer Technologie. Ohne Zahlen könnten wir weder Raketen starten, die das Sonnensystem erkunden, noch Brücken bauen, Güter austauschen oder Rech nungen bezahlen. In gewissem Sinn sind Zahlen also kulturelle Erfindungen, die sich ihrer Bedeutung nach nur mit der Landwirtschaft oder mit dem Rad vergleichen lassen. Aber sie könnten sogar noch tiefere Wurzeln haben. Tausende von Jahren vor Christus benutzten babylonische Wissenschaftler Zahlzeichen, um erstaun lich genaueastronomische Tabellen zu berechnen. Zehntausende von Jahren zuvor hatten Menschen der Steinzeit die ersten geschriebenen Zahlenreihen geschaffen, indem sie Knochen einkerbten oder Punkte auf Höhlenwände malten. Und, wie ich später überzeugend darzustellen hoffe, schon vor weiteren Millionen von Jahren, lange bevor es Menschen gab, nahmen Tiere aller Arten Zahlen zur Kenntnis und stellten mit ihnen einfache Kopfrechnungen an. Sind Zahlen also fast so alt wie das Leben selbst? Sind sie in der Struktur unseres Gehirns verankert? Besitzen wir einen Zahlensinn, eine spezielle Intuition, die uns hilft, Zahlen und Mathematik mit Sinn zu erfüllen? Ich wurde vor fünfzehn Jahren, während meiner Ausbildung zum Mathema tiker, fasziniert von den abstrakten Objekten, mit denen ich umzugehen lernte, vor allem von den einfachsten von ihnen- den Zahlen.
