5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for teachers and parents 28 Oct 2007
By Lulu
Format:Paperback
This book will definately help with planning - a must have, especially for trainee teachers.
It's really easy to read so you don't find yourself switiching off. It's not a book you should read cover-to-cover (if you should ever have the time to!), instead, read the section relevant to what you're about to teach. It gives you a good idea of the errors that may come up and why.
The book gives examples of misconceptions and this is useful to see if the kids really understand what they are doing. I sometimes put these examples on the board and ask the kids to mark them - this is useful for them to understand where they're going wrong or could go wrong.
Also, it shows you the progression, linked to the NNS so you can see where they came from and where they should be moving to.
This, along with Shirley Clarke books, are definately the best books that I bought during my teacher training - money well spent.
If you're not a trainee or an NQT this is still v. useful to have on your shelf - if only to dip into everytime you teach a new unit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I had bought it earlier! 25 Aug 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I've just bought this book and I really wish that I had it last year when I was training to be a teacher. If I'd had it as a student I would have been able to answer my "Misconceptions in Maths" assignment a lot better! I KNOW that this is really going to help me teach maths in a more informed way. I have already used it to look up things that I'm teaching this term and I have used it to help with my planning. I'm also ashamed to say that it has helped me with my own understanding of maths because it explains why the errors happen!
