Product Description

Review

'Chambers and Timlin write with clarity and purpose. We have recommended this book as one of the key texts for our PGCE (secondary) mathematics trainees. The authors link the theory of teaching mathematics with simple reflective questions and interesting maths tasks. There is practical advice on planning, assessment and differentiations, amongst other pertinent themes. Trainee teachers have incorporated this advice into their practice as well as reflected upon it in their Masters assignments'
-Jacqueline Oldham, PGCE Secondary Mathematics Course Tutor, St Mary's University College


'This is a very practical guide for learning to teach mathematics for student teachers on all training routes. Chapters are focused and readable but succeed in tackling issues in depth (there is extensive discussion of the place of proof in the teaching and learning of mathematics, for example, and a valuable exploration of mathematical misconceptions and how to deal with them).

The reader is given strong academic support; each chapter has a discussion of relevant research, which is interesting in itself, supports trainees' classroom teaching and provides sound starting points for Master's level assignments and research enquiries. As well as lists of references, the 'Further reading' sections discuss and provide insight into a small selection of relevant publications.

The book encourages a reflective approach; on frequent occasions there is a pause for a 'Point for reflection', useful both for individual thinking and writing and for group discussions.

Also welcome is the wealth of practical examples throughout the book that provide ideas and help to make points clear, such as examples of comments on pupils' written work, open and closed questions, and possible approaches to teaching particular topics'
-Anne Haworth, PGCE Secondary Mathematics Course Tutor, University of Manchester


'The revised edition offers comprehensive coverage of key issues in Mathematics teaching. The in depth coverage of issues such as assessment for learning and a wide variety of teaching strategies makes it a valuable resource not only for those training to teach mathematics but for those starting their career'
-Mark Boylan

Reader in Teacher Education, Sheffield Hallam University

Format:Paperback
I am currently doing my PGCE in secondary mathematics, and have found this book to be really useful both in covering the University taught content, and in helping with compiling the QTS standards log, the critical incident reflections and the research essay. Away from the academic content of the course, I have also found the book to be really useful when it comes to actually teaching mathematics in the class room, which when it comes down to it is what the PGCE course is all about!

The chapters take in a range of subjects - the chapters on current government initiatives with regards to the National Curriculum and Every Child Matters policy provide a useful overview as to the role and responsibility of teachers, whilst the chapter on assessment brings together the role of Ofsted, the growing importance of SATs and how assessment for learning can be successfully implemented.

Other chapters are much more orientated towards actually teaching in the classroom. There is a chapter on lesson planning, and on the incorporation of starters and plenary activities within the lesson. Examples are provided, and interviews included with maths teachers and pupils giving their feedback about what methods are successful and why.
There is also a large chapter that discusses how to best teach different mathematical topics, algebra, geometry, statistics, mental methods etc.

Lastly there is also an accompanying website which contains links to all the websites referenced in the text, and contains about 10 video clips taken from actual lessons as examples of good teaching practice. There is even a short video of a Japanese maths lesson, so you can compare and contrast different teaching styles overseas.

I am in the process of applying to start a PGCE with SKE.... this book was invaluable in giving major insights into the requirements and approaches to teaching mathematics in schools today. Really recommend buying this if you are thinking about starting a Mathematics PGCE or have started the course.

This book gives some really interesting back ground to teaching maths, and is really easy to read. It's my favourite book so far of those recommended on my PGCE course.
