> Teaching Mathematics: Foundations to Middle Years
Enter the classroom with confidence. This impressive volume aims to assist, inform and inspire. Written by a group of highly respected and experienced teacher educators, the advice is based on current research and theories and, although written for pre-service teachers, there is much that will appeal to practising teachers. It begins with setting the scene of teaching and learning mathematics in schools and then progresses to understanding some of the challenges and opportunities: thinking mathematically, communicating in the mathematics classroom, multiple representations, assessment and reporting, and diversity. The big ideas in numeracy across the curriculum are explored before delving into the three key content strands of Number, Measurement and Geometry and Statistics and Probability.Chapters which cover content in more detail also include examples of best practice teaching approaches, student work samples, vignettes, a plentiful array of sample questions, exercises and activities, and assessment ideas and strategies. With this detailed and comprehensive approach, personal knowledge and confidence in key mathematical areas as well as specific pedagogy content knowledge is developed. And at just over 700 pages there is much, much more!
