Teaching Secondary School Mathematics: A Resource Book is a sequel to its companion volume, Teaching Primary School Mathematics: A Resource Book, in the Singapore Mathematics Education Series.

The series has been updated to follow the 2007 syllabus recently implemented in scholls in Singapore.
Teaching Secondary School Mathematics: A Resource Book covers the following four aspects of teaching and learning; Syllabus (standards) and concepts, teaching approaches and ideas, common errors and learning difficulties, and sample activities. Each chapter draws from the experience and teaching materials of the various authors in this volume, and is well researched, clearly written and easy to understand. This book is useful for pre-service and in-service teachers as well as mathematics educators, parents and anyone interested in secondary school mathematics education.

Review:

"... The careful presentation of relevant research alongside activities for both students and teachers makes it easy to integrate research into thinking about lesson preparation... The elaboration of learning difficulties frequently experienced by students in a given topic is particularly useful, this depth of understanding can take years to develop on one's own." --Judy Paterson, Lecturer; The University of Auckland
