This book enables teachers to effectively meet the needs of their most able mathematicians. Using a tried and tested set of principles developed and used by The Able Children's Education Unit at Brunel University, the author demonstrates how to: identify high mathematical ability in a pupil, plan suitably challenging activities and teach them most effectively within the existing National Numeracy framework, make the most of the classroom resources available, including ICT and external agencies, implement strategies for differentiation, illustrated with real-life classroom examples. Accessible in style and featuring practical case studies throughout, this book will give teachers and student teachers the confidence and knowledge to effectively challenge and develop the skills of the most able mathematician.

This work aims to help primary and secondary teachers to recognize and teach mathematically able pupils. Roy Kennard reviews the characteristics of the very able pupils and shows how these characteristics are reflected in the National Curriculum for Mathematics. He goes on to show how: mathematically able children can be challenged through problem solving and interactive discussion; and the use of in-depth case studies and other examples of pupils' work makes it possible for teachers to see the consequences of the approaches discussed. This text also considers whole school organizational and leadership approaches and should be useful to school management teams or "gifted and talented coordinators." This revised and updated second edition should be of interest to teachers, advisers, lecturers and students with an interest in securing effective provision for mathematically able pupils.

This text is for students in early childhood teacher education courses. It focuses on mathematics education with children from three to eight years, in preschool and the early primary grades. It could also be used by teachers wishing to become familiar with maths in these early childhood years. The integration of theory and practice occurs through topics about how children learn, what they learn as young mathematicians, the provision of an appropriate learning environment, and relevant teaching strategies. The text provides a developmental basis for new approaches to mathematics education, and explains how teachers can organise the learning environment so children can construct their own knowledge. It steers a middle course between closed, over-structured teaching and laissez- faire, unsupported experience. Detailed lists of developmental sequences help teachers to identify children's mathematical thinking so they can offer appropriate support at the right time. It offers guidance in the use of curriculum documents from state education departments, for developing a mathematics program. In view of increasing use of games in maths education, a chapter offers not only games, but general principles about the use, purchase and adaptation of games. Each chapter includes activities for students.

`At last a book is written by teachers for teachers based on sound research that will generate enquiry based learning. It is essential for every classroom with lots of mathematical activities. These will purposefully engage children and allow for differentiation for those who require additional support to understand the number system and the more able children who require to be challenged. Mathematical standards in our schools will improve tremendously following these instructional activities' - Carole Cannon, Development Officer for Mathematics Recovery 'This book ‘Teaching Number in the Classroom with 4-8 year olds’ is an absolute "must have" for all educators involved in early number. Based on sound theoretical foundations, it offers a wealth of down-to-earth, tried and tested, effective approaches to teaching early number concepts and skills. It is a clearly a book written by teachers for teachers. Every single activity in the book is a nugget. Engaging with these activities will change your whole approach to teaching early number' - Noreen O’Loughlin, Associate Vice-President/Lecturer in Maths Education, Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick, Ireland. 'The authors prove it is possible to write a teacher friendly/teacher useful mathematics book that connects theory and practice. This book may become the primary teacher's "Math Bible"' - Angela Giglio Andrews, Primary Intervention Specialist and Coordinator, and Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education, National Louis University 'Teaching Number in the Classroom translates years of research into a very understandable and comprehensive approach for teaching children how the number system is structured and how to think like a mathematician. For too many years there has been the perception that children who are struggling with mathematics don't know the basic facts. The reality is that these children lack number knowledge and skills. Teaching Number in the Classroom will guide the educational professional through the steps of understanding the development of "number sense", identifying the current levels of knowledge and providing instruction that helps children use the "framework of mathematics" to solve number problems. Teaching Number in the Classroom is a thinking skills approach to mathematics. Children are taught a variety of strategies for solving mathematical problems. The teacher using this book will be able to help all children develop a strong foundation of mathematical understanding' - Carol Meland, K-3rd Grade Principal for the School District of Milton Wisconsin, USA Teaching Number in the Classroom with 4-8 year olds is an absolute "must-have" for all educators involved in early number.

This popular Continuum series, intended chiefly for teachers and trainee teachers, places strong emphasis on practice but at the same time incorporates the latest research in the field. The book demonstrates a strong belief in the ability of children to learn, and in the ability of teachers to increase children's learning potential. The series authors are distinguished practitioners in their fields who write with authority, but without jargon. With the increasingly popular constructivist framework for learning, teachers are coming to recognize the limitations of taught procedures and to find ways to encourage children to generate their own knowledge and understanding in mathematics. The challenge for teachers is to promote an environment that encourages mathematical thinking in which pupils of all abilities are able to achieve their full potential. This text brings together experiences of teachers and researchers who examine the ways children work mathematically, in order to provide an enhanced learning environment within the classroom. It also addresses key issues in current maths teaching.

Help your students to think critically and creatively through team-based problem solving instead of focusing on testing and outcomes. Professionals throughout the education system are recognizing that standardized testing is holding students back. Schools tend to view children as outcomes rather than as individuals who require guidance on thinking critically and creatively. Awesome Math focuses on team-based problem solving to teach discrete mathematics, a subject essential for success in the STEM careers of the future. Built on the increasingly popular growth mindset, this timely book emphasizes a problem-solving approach for developing the skills necessary to think critically, creatively, and collaboratively. In its current form, math education is a series of exercises: straightforward problems with easily-obtained answers. Problem solving, however, involves multiple creative approaches to solving meaningful and interesting problems. The authors, co-founders of the multi-layered educational organization AwesomeMath, have developed an innovative approach to teaching mathematics that will enable educators to: Move their students beyond the calculus trap to study the areas of mathematics most of them will need in the modern world Show students how problem solving will help them achieve their educational and career goals and form lifelong communities of support and collaboration Encourage and reinforce curiosity, critical thinking, and creativity in their students Get students into the growth mindset, coach math teams, and make math fun again Create lesson plans built on problem based learning and identify and develop educational resources in their schools Awesome Math: Teaching Mathematics with Problem Based Learning is a must-have resource for general education teachers and math specialists in grades 6 to 12, and resource specialists, special education teachers, elementary educators, and other primary education professionals.
