Book Description

Following the great success of the earlier books, this fourth book in the Mathematics Recovery series equips teachers with detailed pedagogical knowledge and resources for teaching number to 7 to 11-year olds.

Drawing on extensive programs of research, curriculum development, and teacher development, the book offers a coherent, up-to-date approach emphasising computational fluency and the progressive development of students' mathematical sophistication. The book is organized in key domains of number instruction, including structuring numbers 1 to 20, knowledge of number words and numerals, conceptual place value, mental computation, written computation methods, fractions, and early algebraic reasoning.

Features include:

" fine-grained progressions of instruction within each domain;

" detailed descriptions of students' strategies and difficulties;

" assessment tasks with notes on students' responses;

" classroom-ready instructional activities;

" an accompanying CD with extensive instructional resources.

This book is designed for classroom and intervention teachers, special education teachers and classroom assistants. The book is an invaluable resource for mathematics advisors and coaches, learning support staff, numeracy consultants, curriculum developers, teacher educators and researchers.

'This is the must-have resource our teachers have been waiting for! Developing Number Knowledge transforms an extensive body of research and field testing into a practical guide of assessments and instructional activities designed especially for older elementary students. As an instructional support teacher, I will use this guide when helping teachers plan developmentally appropriate lessons for their struggling students' -
Jackie Amato, District Math Recovery Leader

'Essential reading for every teacher of mathematics in primary or early secondary education, 'Developing Number Knowledge' is a professional development tool with detailed assessment and instructional content for the classroom. It is for teachers working one-to-one, with small groups or whole classes who want their children to make sense of mathematics and become confident, successful mathematicians. With its foundations in research and extensive classroom practice, it will challenge the way you teach! Maths Recovery teachers will welcome this addition to their 'tool kit'' -

About the Author

Dr Robert J. (Bob) Wright holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in mathematics from the University of Queensland (Australia) and a doctoral degree in mathematics education from the University of Georgia. He is an adjunct professor in mathematics education at Southern Cross University in New South Wales. Bob is an internationally recognized leader in assessment and instruction relating to children’s early arithmetical knowledge and strategies, publishing four books, and many articles and papers in this field. His work over the last 20 years has included the development of the Mathematics Recovery Program which focuses on providing specialist training for teachers to advance the numeracy levels of young children assessed as low-attainers. In Australia and New Zealand, Ireland, the UK, the USA, Canada, Mexico and elsewhere, this program has been implemented widely and applied extensively to classroom teaching and to average and able learners as well as low-attainers. He has conducted several research projects funded by the Australian Research Council including the most recent project focusing on assessment and intervention in the early arithmetical learning of low-attaining 8–10-year-olds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to this series! 24 April 2013
By Math E. Matters - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am always looking for books that will enrich my understanding of how children develop mathematical sense and understanding. I have read and used the other 3 books by Robert Wright et al, so I knew I'd want to have this one too. Like the previous books, this one provides guidance into what children need to know and common misconceptions they may have. There are numerous activities -easy to implement with few materials, in most cases - that you can use to work intentionally towards specific learning goals for each child. Some of the reading is a little dry, so it's not what I'd call an "easy read," but it is clearly written and very helpful if you're working with students who struggle with number sense development.
5.0 out of 5 stars A great read for teachers/ tutors/ interventionists 24 Jun. 2015

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A great read for teachers/ tutors/ interventionists. I am a resource specialist teacher, and I love it! It gives background knowledge about different key components of math/ common mistakes made by students, simple repetitive activities, and lots of recommendations for different activities practicing all different skills. I have only read chapters 1-4 currently, but so far it has been amazing. Next year I plan on completely restructuring my lessons to follow the core areas of this book.

This book is a must have for any educator teaching elementary math. It teaches you how to really think about the way children learn mathematically and then gives you very practical guidance and activities to support them as learners. AWESOME resource... was the foundation for a recent PD session at my school that was well received!
