'Every teacher of maths should read this book! It helped me realize why some children are struggling with doing simple word problems' -Amazon reader review

If you are a teacher or student teacher in a nursery or primary school, you need a secure understanding of the mathematical ideas behind the material you will use in the classroom. To help young children develop their understanding of mathematics, you need to develop your own understanding of how mathematics is learnt.

In this indispensible book, the authors help you to understand mathematical concepts and how children come to understand them, and also help develop your own confidence with mathematical activities.

Each chapter of this book includes:

-Real-life examples and illustrations from children and teachers in the classroom

-The research behind some of the concepts and teaching approaches discussed

-Pauses to reflect and discuss your own mathematical knowledge and experience

-Age-appropriate classroom activities to try with your class or group.

Review:

I believe that it should be available to every teacher and learning support assistant involved in working with children in mathematics. Each chapter would form the basis of a fascinating training session, parent workshop or discussion. (Ruth Hale)

This book was a delight to read. The mathematical content is excellent and the approach to explaining complex concepts is exceptionally good!'
,-Dr Jennifer Way, University of Sydney

'I'm a really big fan of this book: it is the single most influential text in my experience of working with primary maths teachers in the last 12 years. It is influential because it speaks to them clearly and in such a way that they can directly see its relevance to their practice'
- Andy Tynemouth, Every Child Counts National Adviser, Edge Hill University

'Every teacher of maths should read this book! It is well-structured and easy to read and helps you understand the fundamental building blocks that you need to make children aware of, so they can correctly construct their own understanding of numbers. I thought I knew quite a bit about maths but this book helped me realize why some of my children are struggling with doing simple word problems. Actually, it gave me LOTS of reasons why they might be struggling, as well as a variety of activities I can adapt to help them change some of their misconceptions'
