Starting Out: Primary Mathematics *REDUCED*

Len Sparrow, Paul Swan

This book by mathematics educators Len Sparrow and Paul Swan is a collection of ideas, teaching activities and real “advice” which is based on classroom experiences. There is no single correct way to help primary children learn mathematics effectively, but the ideas presented in this book are based on recent research findings and recommendations, and readers are encouraged to read critically and adapt ideas to work with their own students, context and classroom.

The book will appeal to different teachers in different ways: for some experienced staff it will serve as a reminder of some things already known — ideal for staff returning to teaching after an absence or for those beginning to teach a new year level; for newer teachers, it is a handy comprehensive source of information. The book is ideal for head teachers or principals to use when inducting new staff.

The book is written in such a way that readers can “pick and mix” the sections that are most relevant to them and it contains practical suggestions for setting up the classroom and getting to know the children and the school community. It also provides a range of starter activities, tips on establishing routines, and simple assessment and reporting guidance. Also included are ten-minute mathematics activities, literature suggestions, photographs of mathematics equipment with explanations for use, a glossary of terms, and references to useful books and websites.
