Toppsta - Childrens Books – Reviews
As such, the contributors provide a broad brush introduction to theory and research for student teachers, perhaps recognising that this offering may be a primary source for prospective practitioners to begin their study of what it takes to teach mathematics. If that is not your goal, then this volume will maybe stop short of the depth of engagement you are looking for in any of the topics or issues under consideration:.
- Reference Library | Mathematics Mastery.
- Fairy Tales and the Art of Subversion (Routledge Classics)?
- European Armies and the Conduct of War.
- Great colonial America projects : you can build yourself!.
It is probably not for students who benefit from an HE input and will be looking for a deeper consideration of topics that are introduced within their academic programme of study and exemplified in site-based components with experienced colleagues. I would recommend students on HEI programmes to access some of the chapters, but not to have this as a core reader e.
A negative for me in a number of contributing sections, is the strong emphasis on policy, curriculum and practices in England ; a negative for any international reader, where I believe there is scope in all of those sections to focus on generic issues without immediately hanging arguments on practices within England.
A later contribution in Chapter 10 cites Alexander and Mercer, but there is no discussion per se. So, not for me, but certainly a positive offering for those who miss out on anything more substantial or indeed wish to have an overview of current thinking and developments in mathematics education.

Before this, she was a secondary maths teacher for 15 years. She is also doing research into the use of graphics calculators in the teaching and learning of algebra Before that Dave taught in secondary schools for 11 years including being Head of Mathematics for five of those years. Dave's research interests relate to ways in which the powers all of us possess and used as young children in our early pre-school learning can be accessed and utilised more frequently and effectively within the mathematics classroom.
Recently this has led to a particular interest in the teaching and learning of algebra and the use of computer software. Nicholas Jackiw is the inventor of The Geometer's Sketchpad. Peter Johnston-Wilder, The Open University, has been a secondary maths teacher and a lecturer on courses for intending and in-service teachers.
He was jointly editor of MicroMath for six years and is currently conducting research in statistical education.
